Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus (10) maintains a desired distance between two parts (5, 6) of a severed sternum of a patient. The apparatus (10) includes an elongate member (20), such as a plastic or surgical steel plate, and an element (60) for securing the elongate member (20) to each of the two parts (5, 6) of the severed sternum. The elongate member (20) has longitudinal edges (32, 34) dimensioned and configured to space apart the two parts (5, 6) of the severed sternum the desired distance. When implanted, the two parts (5, 6) of the severed sternum engage the longitudinal edges (32, 34) of the elongate member (20) to maintain the desired distance between such parts.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil (10) destiné à maintenir une distance recherchée entre deux parties (5, 6) du sternum coupé d'un patient. L'appareil (10) comprend un élément oblong (20), notamment une plaque de chirurgie en acier ou en plastique, et un élément (60) permettant de fixer l'élément oblong (20) à chacune des deux parties (5, 6) du sternum coupé. L'élément oblong (20) comporte des bords longitudinaux (32, 34) dimensionnés et configurés afin de maintenir les deux parties espacées (5, 6) du sternum coupé selon la distance recherchée. Lorsque l'appareil est mis en oeuvre, les deux parties (5, 6) du sternum coupé engagent les bords longitudinaux (32, 34) de l'élément oblong (20) afin de maintenir la distance recherchée entre ces parties.
