Title (EN) SURGICAL TOOL FOR PREPARING A BONE FOR A DEVICE WITH A CONVEX ELEMENT
(FR) OUTIL CHIRURGICAL POUR PRÉPARER UN OS POUR UN DISPOSITIF À ÉLÉMENT CONVEXE
Abstract:
(EN) A surgical tool lifts an overlying layer of skin away from underlying bone to prepare the bone to accommodate a convex element of an implantable device. The tool includes a lifting shell for insertion between the skin and the bone so as to lift the skin away from bone. A tool base supports the lifting shell and is supported by the bone. A drill template opening in the tool base provides access for preparing the bone to accommodate the convex element.
(FR) L'invention concerne un outil chirurgical qui soulève une couche sus-jacente de peau recouvrant un os sous-jacent pour préparer l'os afin qu'il accueille un élément convexe d'un dispositif implantable. L'outil comprend une coquille de soulèvement qui doit être insérée entre la peau et l'os de façon à soulever la peau de l'os. Une base d'outil, qui soutient la coquille de soulèvement, est soutenue par l'os. Une ouverture de gabarit de perçage dans la base de l'outil donne accès à la préparation de l'os pour accueillir l'élément convexe.
