Title (EN) EXPANDABLE ORTHOPEDIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHOPEDI QUE EXTENSIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A device for stabilizing bone includes a tubular body (502) having first (504) and second (506) end regions defining a longitudinal axis therebetween. A plurality of splines (510) extend from the first end region (504), the splines including first ends (510a) coupled to the first end region, and second ends (510c) disposed away from the first end region, the second ends being directable from a generally axial collapsed state to a substantially transverse expanded state. A plurality of support arms (520) are coupled to the splines, and an actuator (512) is coupled to the support arms, the actuator (512) movable axially relative to the elongate body (502) for causing the support arms to direct the second ends (506) of the splines from the collapsed state to the expanded state. Optionally, the device includes another set of splines extending from the second end (506) region or located at an intermediate region (530) of the tubular body.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de stabilisation des os qui comprend un corps tubulaire (502) dont les première et seconde zones d'extrémités (504) définissent entre elle un axe longitudinal. Plusieurs cannelures (510), qui partent de la première zone d'extrémité (504), comportent des premières extrémités (510a) couplées à la première zone d'extrémité, et des secondes extrémités (510c) disposées à distance de la première zone d'extrémité, les secondes extrémités étant orientables à partir d'un état replié généralement axial vers un état déployé transversal. Plusieurs bras supports (520) sont couplés aux cannelures et auxquels est couplé un actionneur. L'actionneur (512) peut se déplacer de manière axiale par rapport au corps allongé (502), de sorte que les bras supports dirigent les secondes extrémités (506) des cannelures de l'état replié à l'état déployé. Eventuellement, le dispositif comporte un autre jeu de cannelures se prolongeant de la seconde zone d'extrémité (506), ou se situant dans une zone intermédiaire (530) du corps tubulaire.
