Title
(EN) SURGICAL CABLE ASSEMBLY AND METHOD
(FR) ENSEMBLE CABLE CHIRURGICAL ET PROCEDE
Abstract
(EN) A surgical cable assembly (10) is provided for securing bones, or securing medical implant devices to bones. The assembly preferably comprises a multistrand metal (14) cable and a crimpable coupling member (16) attached to a loop in the cable (14) adjacent one end formed by a separate crimp member (18). The coupling member (16) secures the cable (14) in a permanent loop that encircles the bone and is capable of pivoting to permit the cable to follow the outer contour of the bone and/or implant. The coupling member (16) may comprise a flange (42) to limit its rotation about the cable (14). A method of securing bones and/or implants with the cable assembly (10) also is provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble câble chirurgical (10) destiné à la fixation des os, ou à la fixation d'implants médicaux sur des os. L'ensemble comprend de préférence un câble métallique multibrins (14) et un élément de couplage sertissable (16) fixé sur une boucle, sur le câble (14), de façon adjacente par rapport à une extrémité formée par un élément à sertir différent (18). L'élément de couplage (16) permet de fixer le câble (14) dans une boucle permanente encerclant l'os et peut pivoter afin que le câble suive le contour externe de l'os et/ou de l'implant. L'élément de couplage (16) peut comprendre une bride (42) permettant de limiter sa rotation autour du câble (14). L'invention concerne également un procédé permettant de fixer des os et/ou des implants à l'aide de l'ensemble câble (10).
