Title (EN) TOOL FOR THE ADJUSTMENT OF A PROSTHETIC ANATOMICAL DEVICE
(FR) OUTIL POUR L'AJUSTEMENT D'UN DISPOSITIF ANATOMIQUE PROTHÉTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An adjustment tool enables manipulation of a prosthetic anatomical device such as an annuloplasty ring. The tool includes a compression member which is operative for retarding rotation of the adjustment shaft to preclude inadvertent rotation thereof during use of the tool by the surgeon. A locking device is associated with the adjustment tool to enable the releasable attachment of the tool to the anatomical device during its adjustment by manipulation of the tool. The locking device is oriented into operative and inoperative positions by the engagement and disengagement of locking elements. A scale may be provided on the adjustment tool to assist a surgeon in determining the size or amount of adjustment to the size of the anatomical device during its adjustment.
(FR)L'invention concerne un outil d'ajustement qui permet la manipulation d'un dispositif anatomique prothétique tel qu'un anneau d'annuloplastie. L'outil comprend un élément de compression qui fonctionne en retardant la rotation de la tige d'ajustement afin d'empêcher sa rotation par inadvertance pendant l'utilisation de l'outil par le chirurgien. Un dispositif de verrouillage est associé à l'outil d'ajustement pour permettre la fixation réversible de l'outil au dispositif anatomique pendant son ajustement par manipulation de l'outil. Le dispositif de verrouillage est orienté en position fonctionnelle et en position non fonctionnelle par la solidarisation et la désolidarisation d'éléments de verrouillage. L'outil d'ajustement peut être muni d'une graduation pour aider un chirurgien à déterminer la taille ou la valeur d'ajustement à la taille du dispositif anatomique pendant son ajustement.
