Title (EN) EXPANDABLE ORTHOPEDIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHOPEDIQUE EXTENSIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) An intramedullary device used to stabilize a variety of fractured bones includes a plurality of resilient spine elements. A porous interconnection structure interconnects the spine elements, such as a mesh or a plurality of struts connected between the spine elements. The device expands at one or both ends, and optionally, the shaft of the device can also expand. The end of the device, in its expanded state, has a circumference greater than a circumference of the shaft. The spine elements and/or the interconnection structure are pre-shaped, e.g., composed of a resilient material and pre-shaped, such that the end of the device expands in the absence of an external restraining force. The spine elements and/or interconnection structure can be composed of a shape memory material, such that the expandable end of the device expands when heated to a temperature above a transitional temperature of the shape memory material.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif intramédullaire utilisé pour stabiliser diverses fractures, qui comprend plusieurs éléments d'ossature souples. Une structure d'interconnexion poreuse relie les éléments d'ossature entre eux, de manière à former un maillage ou une pluralité de montants reliés entre les éléments d'ossature. Le dispositif est extensible à l'une des deux extrémités ou aux deux extrémités, et éventuellement l'axe du dispositif peut aussi s'étendre. A l'état étendu, l'extrémité du dispositif a une circonférence supérieure à la circonférence de l'axe. Les éléments d'ossature et/ou la structure d'interconnexion sont préformés, par exemple à base de matériau souple et préformé, de sorte que l'extrémité du dispositif s'étende en l'absence de force externe de retenue. Les éléments d'ossature et/ou la structure d'interconnexion peuvent être en matériau à mémoire de forme, de sorte que l'extrémité extensible du dispositif s'étende lorsqu'elle est chauffée à une température supérieure à une température de transition du matériau à mémoire de forme.
