Title (EN) FIXATION ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE FIXATION
Abstract:
(EN) A fixation assembly having a driver, a holding sleeve, and an alignment mechanism is disclosed. The driver may include a driver body and a coupling extending from a distal end of the driver body. The holding sleeve may have a holding sleeve body, a channel extending through the holding sleeve body, and a fixation element coupler disposed at a distal portion of the holding sleeve body. The channel may be configured to receive the driver, and the fixation element coupler may be configured to temporarily hold a fixation element. The alignment mechanism may extend from the holding sleeve, and may have at least one alignment member configured to engage an underlying structure to which the fixation element is to be affixed so as to align the fixation element and driver assembly with respect to the underlying structure.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble de fixation ayant un dispositif de commande, un manchon de maintien, et un mécanisme d'alignement. Le dispositif de commande peut comprendre un corps de commande et un couplage s'étendant depuis une extrémité distale du corps de dispositif de commande. Le manchon de maintien peut avoir un corps de manchon de maintien, un canal s'étendant à travers le corps de manchon de maintien, et un coupleur d'élément de fixation disposé au niveau d'une partie distale du corps de manchon de maintien. Le canal peut être configuré pour recevoir le dispositif de commande, et le coupleur d'élément de fixation peut être configuré pour maintenir temporairement un élément de fixation. Le mécanisme d'alignement peut s'étendre depuis le manchon de maintien, et peut avoir au moins un composant d'alignement configuré pour engager une structure sous-jacente à laquelle l'élément de fixation doit être fixé de manière à aligner l'élément de fixation et l'ensemble de dispositif de commande par rapport à la structure sous-jacente.
