Abstract: front page image
(EN)A spinal fixation apparatus is configured with a pair of endpieces (30, 31) and intermediate compressible portion (50). The compressible portion (50) may comprise a pair of mating sliders (62, 64) comprising toothed arms (32, 34) attached to the endpieces. A gear (44) engages the toothed arms (32, 34). When the gear (44) is rotated, the sliders (62, 64) bring the endpieces (30, 31) together, compressing the apparatus.
(FR)La présente invention se rapporte à un appareil de fixation spinale qui comporte une paire de pièces terminales (30, 31) et une partie compressible intermédiaire (50). La partie compressible (50) peut comprendre une paire d'éléments coulissants d'accouplement (62, 64) comportant des bras dentés (32, 34) attachés aux pièces terminales. Un engrenage (44) est en prise avec les bras dentés (32, 34).
