Title (EN) REINFORCING ELEMENT FOR STERNAL CLOSURE
(FR) ELEMENT DE RENFORT POUR FERMETURE STERNALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention consists of a reinforcement of the osteosynthesis following surgical splitting of the sternum (1) using sternal wires (2). The reinforcement is realized using a flexible reinforcing element, e. g. a spring (5). The spring (5) is applied with the aid of the sternal punch from posterior to anterior into the halves of the sternum (1) and the spring (5) penetrates the halves of the sternum (1) completely. The spring (5) acts as a counter bearing and enlarges the contact surface of the sternal wires (2) in the sternum (1). The spring (5) avoids cutting of the sternal wires (2) in the sternum (1) and bleeding from the spongiosa (12).
(FR)L’invention concerne un renfort d’ostéosynthèse suite à l’incision chirurgicale du sternum (1) à l’aide de fils sternaux (2). Le renfort est réalisé à l’aide d’un élément de renfort souple tel qu’un ressort (5). Le ressort (5) est appliqué d’arrière en avant au moyen d’une agrafeuse sternale pour pénétrer complètement dans les moitiés du sternum (1). Le ressort (5) joue le rôle de contre-palier et accroît la surface de contact des fils sternaux (2) dans le sternum (1). Le ressort (5) permet d’éviter la coupe des fils sternaux (2) dans le sternum (1) et les saignements du tissu osseux spongieux (12).
