Title (EN) FASTENING SYSTEM FOR SPINAL STABILIZATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ATTACHE POUR SYSTEME DE STABILISATION SPINALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Bone fixation systems for stabilizing bones such as vertebral bodies are disclosed. The fixation systems include fixation connectors (125, 225, 325, 425, 525, 625, 725, 825) that preferably are equipped with bone anchors (123, 223, 323, 523, 623, 823) (e.g., screws, hooks, pins or like structures) for securing the fixation connectors to bones desired to be stabilized. The fixation systems also include linking elements (127) (e.g., rods, plates or other members) for linking the fixation connectors together to form a stabilizing construct capable of maintaining a desired spacial relationship between bones desired to be stabilized. The fixation of the linking elements can be made provisionally through tabs (109, 209, 409, 509), plugs (1002, 30') or sleeves (837) and finally through lateral fasteners (501, 503, 601, 603) or sleevers (702, 802, 902', 1102).
(FR)La présente invention concerne des systèmes de fixation d'os destinés à stabiliser des os tels que des corps vertébraux. Ces systèmes fixation comprennent des connecteurs de fixation qui sont de préférence équipés d'ancres d'os (par exemple des vis, des crochets, des chevilles ou des structures similaires) destinées à fixer ces connecteurs de fixation aux os que l'on souhaite stabiliser. Ces systèmes fixation comprennent aussi des éléments de liaison (par exemple des tiges, des plaques et d'autres éléments) destinés à lier les connecteurs de fixation entre eux de façon à former une construction stabilisante capable de maintenir une relation spatiale souhaitée entre les os que l'on souhaite stabiliser
