Title (EN) PROGRESSIVE GRIP ASSEMBLED BONE-TENDON-BONE GRAFTS, METHODS OF MAKING, AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) GREFFONS OS-TENDON-OS ASSEMBLÉS À PRÉHENSION PROGRESSIVE, PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION, ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present technology is related to the field of bone-tendon-bone implants, grafts, and components thereof, for implantation in mammals, particularly for implantation in humans. More particularly, the present technology relates to assembled implants that comprise a length of tendon (1201) and at least two bone components (1202, 1203) or intermediate bone blocks that are assembled to form a bone- tendon-bone implant, and methods of making such implants. In some embodiments, implants of the present technology provide a first grip on the tendon prior to implantation and a second grip during or after implantation. In some embodiments, bone block assemblies or intermediate bone blocks of the present technology have a first geometric configuration prior to implantation and a second geometric configuration during or after implantation, e.g. break during implantation.
(FR)L'invention concerne le domaine des implants et des greffons os-tendon-os, et des composants de ceux-ci, destinés à une implantation chez des mammifères, en particulier à une implantation chez des êtres humains. Plus particulièrement, l'invention concerne des implants assemblés qui comprennent une longueur de tendon et au moins deux composants osseux ou blocs osseux intermédiaires qui sont assemblés pour former un implant os-tendon-os, et des procédés de fabrication de tels implants. Selon certains modes de réalisation, les implants de la présente invention fournissent une première préhension sur le tendon avant l'implantation, et une seconde préhension pendant ou après une implantation. Selon certains modes de réalisation, les ensembles blocs osseux ou les blocs osseux intermédiaires de la présente technologie ont une première configuration géométrique avant une implantation, et une seconde configuration géométrique pendant ou après une implantation.
