Title
(EN) SPINAL CROSS-CONNECTOR
(FR) ÉLÉMENT D'INTERCONNEXION VERTÉBRAL
Abstract
(EN)
A spinal cross-connector (100) is configured for adjustable connection between spinal fixation devices such as spinal fixation rods (70,80) and allows for adjustment in length or distance between adjacent spinal rod clamping members (116. 136) and provides independent rotational adjustment of the two spinal rod clamping members (116 136) for individual and independent attachment thereof to the adjacent spinal rods of the spinal rod assembly The cross-connector (100) has first and second connection members (112, 114) that are adjustable in length and rotation relative to one another A first spinal rod clamping member (116) is provided on an end of the first connection member (112) and defines first and second arced jaws (118, 120) that are adapted to clamp onto a first spinal rod
(FR)
L'invention concerne un élément d'interconnexion spinal (100) qui est configuré pour la connexion ajustable entre des dispositifs de fixation vertébrale tels que des tiges de fixation vertébrale (70, 80) et permet l'ajustement en longueur ou de la distance entre des éléments de serrage de tiges vertébrales adjacentes (116, 136) et fournit un ajustement rotatif indépendant des deux éléments de serrage de tige vertébrale (116, 136) pour la fixation individuelle et indépendante de ceux-ci aux tiges vertébrales adjacentes de l'ensemble de tiges vertébrales. L'élément d'interconnexion (100) a des premier et second éléments de connexion (112, 114) qui sont ajustables en longueur et en rotation l'un par rapport à l'autre. Un premier élément de serrage de tige vertébrale (116) est formé sur une extrémité du premier élément de connexion (112) et définit des première et seconde mâchoires en arc de cercle (118, 120) qui sont adaptées pour serrer sur une première tige vertébrale.
