Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fixation mechanism (1206, 1306) and method of fixation, such as the fixation of a facet resurfacing implant to an articular facet of a spinal vertebra. The fixation mechanism (1206, 1306) includes a securing mechanism (1220) having a socket (1228) configured to receive a knob (1205) of a biologic implant. The fixation mechanism (1206, 1306) further includes a locking mechanism (1222, 1224, 1322, 1324) for limiting expansion of the socket (1228) following engagement with the knob (1205) of the implant.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un mécanisme de fixation (1206, 1306) et un procédé de fixation, tel que la fixation d'un implant de resurfaçage de facette sur une facette articulaire d'une vertèbre spinale. Le mécanisme de fixation (1206, 1306) comprend un mécanisme de sécurité (1220) comportant un manchon (1228) conçu pour recevoir une excroissance (1205) d'un implant biologique. Le mécanisme de fixation (1206, 1306) comprend en outre un mécanisme de verrouillage (1222, 1224, 1322, 1324) permettant de limiter l'expansion du manchon (1228) à la suite de la mise en prise avec l'excroissance (1205) de l'implant.
