Title (EN) JOINT RECONSTRUCTION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE RECONSTRUCTION D'UNE ARTICULATION
Abstract:
(EN) The implant (20) is shaped to generally mimic the form of the trapezium (12), or portions thereof. For example, the implant optionally defines a first metacarpal projection (32) and a second metacarpal projection (34) spaced from the first metacarpal projection to form a C-type, or cuff-type receptacle (36) for receiving the first metacarpal (15) such as the first and second metacarpal projections extend along either side of the first metacarpal. The receptacle optionally acts as a support surface (36A) for the first metacarpal during articulation thereof. In some embodiments, the first metacarpal projection is configured to extend adjacent the end portion of the first metacarpal that is adjacent the CMC joint (10) and the second metacarpal projection is configured to extend into the space (19) between the end portions of the first and second metacarpals (15, 18), thereby helping maintain the intermetacarpal spacing between the first and second metacarpals. The implant may comprise an inflatable cover for minimally invasive implantation.
(FR) L'implant (20) est façonné de façon à imiter, de façon générale, la forme du trapèze (12), ou de parties de celui-ci. L'implant comporte, par exemple et éventuellement, une première projection métacarpienne (32) et une seconde projection métacarpienne (34), séparée de la première projection métacarpienne et formant un réceptacle (36) en C ou en forme de coupe destiné à recevoir le premier métacarpe (15), les première et seconde projections métacarpiennes se prolongeant le long de chaque côté du premier métacarpe. Le réceptacle peut éventuellement servir de surface d'appui (36A) pour le premier métacarpe lors de son articulation. Dans certains modes de réalisation, la première projection métacarpienne est conçue pour se prolonger à proximité immédiate de la partie terminale du premier métacarpe adjacente à l'articulation CMC (10) et la seconde projection métacarpienne est conçue pour se prolonger dans l'espace (19) situé entre les parties terminales des premier et second métacarpes (15, 18), contribuant ainsi à maintenir l'espacement intermétacarpien entre les premier et second métacarpes. L'implant peut comprendre une enveloppe dilatable permettant une implantation la moins invasive possible.
