Title (EN) MODULAR SEGMENTED INTRAMEDULLARY SYSTEM, APPARATUS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈME INTRAMÉDULLAIRE SEGMENTÉ MODULAIRE, APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A modular implantable segmented intramedullary structure (300) adapted to be received in the intramedullary canal of a bone configurable between a relatively flexible, bent configuration (307) for implantation or extraction and a relatively rigid, straightened compressed configuration (306) for bone treatment. The segmented intramedullary structure (300) comprises a plurality of interconnected segments (310) with a first interface (310) and a complementarily-shaped second interface (320) such that the first interface of a segment cooperatively engages the second interface of an adjacent segment. The segments define a channel (340) for a tensioning elongate member (350) to lock the structure in a compressed configuration. Methods of manufacturing, assembling, and/or treating a patient with the segmented intramedullary structure include options for real time customizable construction of the segmented intramedullary structure.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une structure intramédullaire segmentée modulaire implantable (300) conçue pour être reçue dans le canal intramédullaire d'un os et pouvant être configurée entre une configuration courbée relativement souple (307) pour son implantation ou son extraction et une configuration comprimée redressée relativement rigide, (306) pour le traitement de l'os. La structure intramédulaire segmentée (300) comprend une pluralité de segments interconnectés (310) ayant une première interface (310) et une seconde interface de forme complémentaire (320) de telle sorte que la première interface d'un segment entre en prise de façon fonctionnelle avec la seconde interface d'un segment adjacent. Les segments définissent un canal (340) destiné à un élément allongé tendeur (350) pour le verrouillage de la structure dans une configuration comprimée. L'invention concerne des procédés de fabrication, de montage, et/ou de traitement d'un patient avec la structure intramédullaire segmentée comprenant des options pour une construction personnalisable en temps réel de la structure intramédullaire segmentée.
