Title (EN) INSERTION HANDLE FOR SURGICAL IMPLANTS
(FR) MANCHE UTILISÉ POUR LA MISE EN PLACE D'IMPLANTS CHIRURGICAUX
Abstract:
(EN) An insertion handle for medical implants includes a handle with an elongate shaft extending therefrom and connection means for the implant disposed at the end of the shaft opposite the handle. The connection means includes a pivotable attachment for the implant that is controlled remotely from the handle. Both angle of the implant with respect to the handle and shaft as well as the attachment may be separately controlled and adjusted. Remote angular adjustment facilitates insertion of implants in to small surgical sites because the orientation of the implant may be repeatedly, remotely adjusted as the implant is inserted. Connectors may also be provided at the engagement surface between the handle and implant in order to provide communication with the implant or surgical site. The connectors also may serve as torque bearing members to avoid the need for separate torque bearing means such as keyways and the like.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un manche utilisé pour la mise en place d'implants médicaux qui comprend un manche comportant une tige allongée se prolongeant depuis ledit manche et un moyen de raccordement à l'implant disposé à l'extrémité de la tige, à l'opposé du manche. Le moyen de raccordement comprend un dispositif d'attache de l'implant pivotant qui est contrôlé à distance depuis le manche. L'angle de l'implant par rapport au manche et à la tige, de même que le dispositif d'attache peuvent être contrôlés et réglés séparément à distance. Un réglage angulaire à distance facilite la mise en place des implants dans de petits sites chirurgicaux, car l'orientation de l'implant peut être réglée à distance et de façon répétée au fur et à mesure de la mise en place de l'implant. Des connecteurs peuvent également être utilisés au niveau de la surface de contact entre le manche et l'implant afin d'assurer une communication avec l'implant ou le site chirurgical. Lesdits connecteurs peuvent également servir à supporter la force de torsion afin d'éviter d'avoir à utiliser des éléments supportant la force de torsion séparés, tels que des rainures de clavette et équivalent.
