Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ENABLING ACCESS TO AN INTRAMEDULLARY CANAL OF A FEMUR THROUGH A FEMORAL KNEE JOINT PROSTHESIS
(FR) TECHNIQUE ET APPAREILLAGE PERMETTANT D'ACCEDER AU CANAL INTRAMEDULLAIRE D'UN FEMUR AU TRAVERS D'UNE PROTHESE D'ARTICULATION FEMORALE DU GENOU
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for enabling access to an intramedullary canal of a femur (14) through a femoral knee joint prosthesis (10) includes a first condylar portion (32) and a second condylar portion (34). The first condylar portion (32) has a first femoral bearing surface (36) and the second condylar portion (34) has a second femoral bearing surface (38). An intercondylar portion (40) extends between the first condylar portion (32) and the second condylar portion (34) and defines an opening (56) passing therethrough. A seal member (66) is operable to substantially seal the opening (66) such that the seal member is further operable to be opened to enable access to the intramedullary canal of the femur (14) without having to remove the femoral knee joint prosthesis (10) from the femur (14). A method for enabling access to the intramedullary canal of the femur (14) through the femoral knee joint prosthesis (10) is also provided.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une technique et un appareillage permettant d'accéder au canal intramédullaire d'un fémur (14) au travers d'une prothèse d'articulation fémorale d'un genou (10) qui comprend une première (32) et une seconde (34) parties condyliennes. La première partie condylienne (32) présente une première surface portante fémorale (36) et la seconde partie condylienne (34) une seconde surface portante fémorale (38). Une partie intercondylienne (40) s'étend entre la première partie condylienne (32) et la seconde partie condylienne (34), et définit une échancrure (56). Un élément d'étanchéité (66) permet de fermer sensiblement de manière étanche l'ouverture (66) de façon à ce que cet élément puisse être ultérieurement manoeuvré afin de dégager l'ouverture et de permettre l'accès au canal intramédullaire du fémur (14) sans avoir à enlever du fémur (14) la prothèse d'articulation fémorale du genou (10). L'invention concerne aussi une technique d'accès au canal intramédullaire du fémur (14) à travers la prothèse d'articulation fémorale du genou (10).
