Title
(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR CONNECTING A LONGITUDINAL MEMBER TO A BONE PORTION
(FR) APPAREIL POUR CONNECTER UN ELEMENT LONGITUDINAL ET UNE PARTIE OSSEUSE
Abstract
(EN)
A device for provides access to a surgical location within a patient. The device has an elongate body that has a proximal portion, a distal portion, a first slot segment, and a second slot segment that is angled relative to said first slot segment. The elongate body defines a passage for accessing the surgical location with surgical instruments. The elongate body has a contracted configuration for insertion into the patient and an expanded configuration for providing access to the surgical location. The cross-sectional area of the passage at a first location of the elongate body is greater than the cross-sectional area of said passage at a second location of the elongate body. A movable tab is configured to extend into the second slot segment when the elongate body is in the expanded configuration to retain the elongate body in the expanded configuration.

L'invention concerne un dispositif pour fournir l'accès à un emplacement chirurgical chez un patient. Ledit dispositif présente un corps allongé comprenant une partie proximale, une partie distale, un premier segment à fentes, et un second segment à fentes qui est placé dans un certain angle par rapport au premier segment à fentes. Ledit corps allongé définit un passage permettant l'accès à l'emplacement chirurgical au moyen d'instruments chirurgicaux. Ledit corps allongé présente une configuration contractée permettant son insertion dans le corps du patient, et une configuration expansée permettant l'accès à l'emplacement chirurgical. La partie transversale du passage sur un premier emplacement du corps allongé est supérieure à la partie transversale du passage sur un second emplacement du corps allongé. Une languette mobile peut être allongée dans le second segment à fentes, lorsque le corps allongé est en configuration expansée, ce qui permet de retenir le corps allongé en configuration expansée.
