Title
(EN) COUPLING MEANS FOR FEMUR PROSTHESIS
(FR) MOYEN DE COUPLAGE POUR PROTHESE DU FEMUR
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a coupling means (3) for a femur prosthesis (1) comprising an adaptor element (6) and a ball element (4), which elements (6, 4) are each provided with a blind central bore (7, 5), wherein the bore (7) of the adaptor elememt (6) is suitable in shape and dimension to enable placing over a fixed stem end (2) of a femur prosthesis (1) and wherein the bore (5) of the ball element (4) is suitable in shape and dimension to enable placing over the adaptor element (6), and wherein, when arranged over each other, the ball element (4) is mounted for free rotation relative to the fixed stem end (2), wherein the ball element (4) consists of a spherical ball head (9) which transposes into a substantially cylindrical ball collar (10), which ball element (4) is provided with a blind central bore (5) which extends through the whole ball collar (10) into a considerable part of the ball head (9).
(FR)
Moyen de couplage (3) pour prothèse (1) du fémur, qui comporte un élément adaptateur (6) et un élément arrondi (4), lesdits éléments (4, 6) étant tous deux pourvus d'un trou central aveugle (5, 7). Le trou (7) de l'élément adaptateur (6) possède une forme et une dimension qui permettent la mise en place dudit élément sur une extrémité (2) de tige fixe d'une prothèse (1) de fémur et le trou (5) de l'élément arrondi (4) possède une forme et une dimension qui permettent la mise en place dudit élément sur l'élément adaptateur (6). Lorsque les deux éléments sont disposés l'un sur l'autre, l'élément arrondi (4) est monté de manière à tourner librement par rapport à l'extrémité (2) de tige fixe. L'élément arrondi (4) est constitué d'une tête sphérique (9) qui se prolonge en un col (10) pratiquement cylindrique, ledit élément arrondi (4) étant pourvu d'un trou central aveugle (5) qui s'étend dans l'intégralité du col (10) et dans une grande partie de la tête sphérique (9).
