Title (EN) CRANIAL CLAMP AND METHOD FOR FIXATING A BONE PLATE
(FR) CLAMP CRANIEN ET PROCEDE DE FIXATION D'UNE LAME OSSEUSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A clamp assembly for repairing a bone defect according to the invention includes a base (100), a cap (150) opposing the base, and a post (120) connecting the cap and the base in a fastening position on adjacent bone plate and surrounding cranium. The clamp assembly may further include an applier (170) interacting with the post to position the cap and base in the fastening position. A method according to the invention includes placing the base and cap on opposing internal and external surfaces of the bone plate, with a portion of each of the base and cap overlapping a border of junction between the bone plate and surrounding bone. The post is rotated to bring the base and cap to the fastening position. The method may further include removing a distal portion of the post projecting from the cap and leaving a proximal portion of the post projecting from the cap and which can be deformed to secure the base and cap in the fastening position.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble de clamp permettant de réparer un défaut osseux et comprenant une base (100), une coiffe (150) opposée à la base et une tige (120) reliant la coiffe et la base dans une position de fixation sur une lame osseuse adjacente et entourant le crâne. L'ensemble de clamp peut également comprendre un applicateur (170) interagissant avec la tige de manière à positionner la coiffe et la base dans la position de fixation. L'invention concerne également un procédé consistant à placer la base et la coiffe sur des surfaces interne et externe opposées de la lame osseuse, une partie de la base et de la coiffe chevauchant une limite de jonction entre la lame osseuse et l'os situé autour de celle-ci. Le procédé consiste également à retirer une partie distale de la tige se projetant à partir de la coiffe et à conserver une partie proximale de la tige se projetant à partir de la coiffe et pouvant être déformée de manière à fixer la base et la coiffe dans la position de fixation.
