Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SECURING A PLATE TO THE SPINAL COLUMN
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE FIXER UNE PLAQUE A LA COLONNE VERTEBRALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The present invention is directed to a drill guide and methods of using a drill guide with a plate having at least one slotted hole extending therethrough. The drill guide positions a bone engaging fastener away from the ends of the slot, allowing compression or distraction of the bony segment to which the plate is attached.
(FR)L'invention concerne un guide-foret et des procédés utilisant ledit guide-foret associé à une plaque dotée d'au moins un alésage en fente. Ledit guide-foret éloigne une fixation coopérant avec l'os des extrémités de la fente, ce qui permet la compression ou la distraction du segment osseux auquel la plaque est fixée.
