Title (DE) CHIRURGISCHES INSTRUMENT ZUM EINFÜHREN VON ZWISCHENWIRBELIMPLANTATEN
(EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT FOR INSERTING INTERVERTEBRAL IMPLANTS
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL POUR L'INTRODUCTION D'IMPLANTS INTERVERTEBRAUX
Abstract:
(DE) Um bei einem chirurgischen Instrument (1) zum Einführen von Zwischenwirbelimplantaten (2) in den Zwischenwirbelraum (14) zwischen benachbarten Wirbelkörpern (15) das Einführen des Zwischenwirbelimplantats (2) auch bei schwierigen Zugängen zu erleichtern, wird vorgeschlagen, dass das chirurgische Instrument (1) zwei einander gegenüberliegende Führungskörper (5) mit einer zum jeweils anderen Führungskörper (5) gerichteten Führung aufweist, die gemeinsam eine Führungsbahn zwischen sich ausbilden, längs der ein Zwischenwirbelimplantat (2) seitlich in den Zwischenwirbelraum (14) einschiebbar ist.
(EN) The invention relates to a surgical instrument (1) for inserting intervertebral implants (2) into the intervertebral area (14) between adjacent vertebral bodies (15). The aim of the invention is to make insertion of said intervertebral implant (2) easier even when access is difficult. To this end, the surgical instrument (1) is provided with two opposite guide elements (5) which are respectively guided towards the other guide element (5). Said guide elements (5) form a guideway between themselves. An intervertebral implant (2) can be pushed into the side of the intervertebral area (14) along the guideway.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument chirurgical (1) servant à l'introduction d'implants intervertébraux (2) dans l'espace intervertébral (14) entre des corps vertébraux (15) adjacents et a pour but de faciliter l'introduction de tels implants (2), également en cas d'accès difficiles. L'instrument chirurgical (1) est, en conséquence, caractérisé en ce qu'il présente deux éléments de guidage (5) opposés l'un à l'autre, ayant chacun un guidage dirigé vers l'autre élément, et formant entre eux un parcours de guidage le long duquel un implant intervertébral (2) peut être inséré latéralement dans ledit espace intervertébral (14).
