Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MAKING A LIGAMENT REPAIR USING COMPRESSED TENDONS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE REPARATION DU LIGAMENT AU MOYEN DE TENDONS COMPRIMES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for performing reconstructive knee surgery. The steps of the method are : 1) harvest a graft ligament (25) consisting entirely of soft tissue; 2) compacting the graft in order to significantly reduce the cross-sectional area and increase the density of the collagen present in the graft material; and 3) implant the compressed tendon in the human body. The apparatus includes a graft ligament and a compacting instrument (75, 80, 82). The graft ligament cross-sectional area is reduced by compressing the tendon with one of the devices.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil destinés à la chirurgie reconstructive du genou. Le procédé consiste 1) à récolter un ligament greffé (25) entièrement constitué de tissu mou, 2) à comprimer la greffe, afin de réduire fortement la zone transversale et d'augmenter la densité du collagène présent dans la matière greffée, 3) à implanter le tendon comprimé dans le corps humain. L'appareil comprend un ligament greffé et un instrument de compression (75, 80, 82). La zone transversale du ligament greffé est réduite par compression du tendon au moyen d'un des dispositifs.
