Title (EN) METHODS AND INSTRUMENTS FOR SPINAL DEROTATION
(FR) procedes et instruments de derotation rachidienne
Abstract:
(EN) Derotation instrument assemblies (500, 600, 700) and systems (512, 514, 602) are provided to facilitate positioning one or more vertebrae of a spinal column into a desired alignment. The instrument assemblies (500, 600, 700) and systems (512, 514, 602) include implant holders (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') engageable to respective implants (550) engaged to vertebrae of the spinal column, transverse bridges (100, 504, 750, 770, 1100) to connect implant holders (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') associated with a particular vertebra, and inter-level linking assemblies (510, 1160) to connect instrument assemblies (500, 600, 700) associated with different vertebrae. Derotation handles (506) can be provided on the implant holders (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') to facilitate application of the alignment forces, while the assemblies (500, 600, 700) distribute the corrective forces to the connected implants and vertebrae.
(FR) L'invention concerne des structures (500, 600, 700) et des systèmes (512, 514, 602) d'instruments de dérotation destinés à faciliter le positionnement d'une ou plusieurs vertèbres d'un rachis selon un alignement souhaité. Les structures (500, 600, 700) et systèmes (512, 514, 602) d'instruments comprennent des dispositifs de maintien d'implants (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') aptes à engager des implants respectifs (550) engageant des vertèbres du rachis, des ponts transversaux (100, 504, 750, 770, 1100) pour connecter des dispositifs de maintien d'implants (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') associés à une vertèbre particulière, et des structures de liaison inter-niveaux (510, 1160) pour connecter des structures d'instruments (500, 600, 700) associées à différentes vertèbres. Des poignées de dérotation (506) peuvent être fournies sur les dispositifs de maintien d'implants (10, 502, 610, 710, 710') de manière à faciliter l'application des forces d'alignement, tandis que les structures (500, 600, 700) distribuent les forces de correction aux implants et vertèbres connectés.
