Title (EN) BONE FIXATION APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE FIXATION D'OS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A clamp assembly for bone fixation elements including first and second clamp structures configured to engage first and second bone fixation elements, respectively. The first clamp structure may have a first spherically contoured bearing surface. The second clamp structure may have a second spherically contoured bearing surface seated in sliding contact with the first bearing surface. A spring-loaded mechanism may apply a spring force urging the bearing surfaces together to resist pivotal movement of the clamp structures relative to each other. The clamp assembly may be used with an assembly of fixation elements to create an external fixation frame.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un ensemble pince destiné à des éléments de fixation d'os comprenant une première et une seconde structure de pince agencées de façon à entrer en contact avec un premier et un second élément de fixation d'os, respectivement. La première structure de pince peut posséder une première surface de support profilée sphériquement. La seconde structure de pince peut posséder une seconde surface de support profilée sphériquement assise en contact coulissant avec la première surface de support. Un mécanisme sous charge ressort peut appliquer une force ressort poussant les surfaces de support ensemble pour résister à un mouvement pivotant des structures de pince entre elles. L'ensemble pince peut-être utiliser avec un ensemble d'éléments de fixation de façon à créer un cadre de fixation externe.
