Title
(EN) ORTHOPEDIC REVISION CONNECTOR
(FR) Connecteur de révision orthopédique
Abstract
(EN)
A connector apparatus (20) for use in orthopedic procedures includes a base portion (30) and an extending leg portion (32) that forms a channel (45). Part of the base portion can be placed atop or adjacent implanted fixation members (e.g. bone screws 22,24), and a locking member (53) can be inserted through the base and into the fixation member to anchor the connector to the fixation member. A rod (28) can be inserted into the channel and fixed to the connector by a set screw (48). The apparatus is useful in connecting a rod to a fixation member, particularly in situations in which a rod (26) is already connected to the fixation member, as by a previous implantation procedure, for example.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil connecteur (20) destiné à être utilisé dans des procédures orthopédiques. Ledit appareil inclut une portion de base (30) et une portion de jambe d'extension (32) formant un canal (45). Une partie de la portion de base peut être placée au-dessus des éléments de fixation implantés (par exemple des vis d'os 22,24) ou de manière adjacente à ces éléments, et un élément de verrouillage (53) peut être inséré à travers la base et dans l'élément de fixation, de manière à ancrer le connecteur à l'élément de fixation. Une tige (28) peut être insérée dans le canal et fixée au connecteur par une vis de serrage (48). L'appareil est utile pour raccorder une tige à un élément de fixation, en particulier pour des situations dans lesquelles une tige (26) est déjà raccordée à l'élément de fixation, comme lors d'une procédure d'implantation précédente, par exemple.
