Title (EN) LONG SLEEVES FOR USE WITH STEMS
(FR) MANCHONS LONGS À UTILISER AVEC DES TIGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various embodiments of the invention relate to sleeves (30) having lengths that allow the sleeve to engage a patient's femoral intramedullary canal in a mid to distal region rather than only proximally. In preferred embodiments, the sleeve length is between about 60 millimeters to about 150 millimeters. In certain embodiments, the sleeve is adapted to extend beyond the lesser trochanter, to or near or beyond a patient's isthmus, and provide diaphyseal fixation.
(FR)Divers modes de réalisation de l’invention concernent des manchons (30) possédant des longueurs permettant aux manchons de venir en prise avec le canal intramédullaire fémoral d’un patient dans une zone médiane à distale plutôt que proximalement uniquement. Dans des modes de réalisation préférés, la longueur de manchon se situe entre environ 60 millimètres et environ 150 millimètres. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le manchon est adapté pour se prolonger au-delà du petit trochanter, à, près ou au-delà de l’isthme d’un patient et pour assurer une fixation diaphysaire.
