Title (EN) SPINAL CORRECTION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE CORRECTION DE LA COLONNE VERTERBALE
Abstract:
(EN) A spinal correction system for the correction or arrest of scoliosis or spinal deformity in immature spines includes a bridge member (12), a pair of spaced apart barbed legs (14) extending substantially perpendicularly therefrom, and a fastener retaining portion (16, 18) extending substantially longitudinally from each end of the bridge member (12). The fastener retaining portions (16, 18) are adapted to lie in adjoining relationship when two or more spinal correction systems are arranged in end-to-end abutting relationship. The spinal correction system is intended to correct or arrest scoliosis in a growing spine by spanning the end plate growth centers of adjacent vertebrae, on the convex side of the malformed spine, and to retard growth of that side of the spine while permitting unrestrained growth of the concave side of the spine.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de correction de la colonne vertébrale pour la correction ou l'arrêt de la scoliose ou d'une malformation vertébrale dans des colonnes vertébrales immatures. Ledit système comprend un élément en pont, une paire de branches à barbe espacées s'étendant sensiblement perpendiculairement audit pont, et une partie de retenue d'attache s'étendant sensiblement longitudinalement depuis chaque extrémité de l'élément en pont. Les parties de retenue d'attache sont conçues pour être en position adjacente lorsqu'au moins deux systèmes de correction de la colonne vertébrale sont disposés bout à bout. Le système de correction de colonne vertébrale est conçu pour corriger ou stopper la scoliose dans une colonne vertébrale en pleine croissance, par recouvrement des centres de croissance des plateaux vertébraux de vertèbres adjacentes, du côté convexe de la colonne déformée, de manière que la croissance de ce côté de la colonne soit retardée alors que la croissance n'est pas freinée du côté concave de la colonne.
