Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR REPAIRING JOINTS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉPARATION D'ARTICULATIONS
Abstract:
(EN) A fixation system for stabilizing a connection between first and second adjacent bones of a joint in a patient. The fixation system includes a first fastener adapted to be secured in a first bone tunnel extending into the first adjacent bone, and a second fastener adapted to be secured in a second bone tunnel extending into the second adjacent bone. A neck portion extends through the bone tunnels between the first and second fasteners and spans the joint. An adjustment mechanism is supplied to apply a tension force across the joint between the first and second fasteners. A ligament replacement is located in the bone tunnels with the neck portion in intimate contact with surfaces of the bone tunnels in the first and second bones.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de fixation destiné à stabiliser une connexion entre un premier et un second os adjacents d'une articulation d'un patient. Le système de fixation comprend une première attache conçue pour se fixer à un premier canal osseux s'étendant à l'intérieur du premier os adjacent, et une seconde attache conçue pour se fixer à un second canal osseux s'étendant à l'intérieur du second os adjacent. Une partie col s'étend à travers les canaux osseux entre la première et la seconde attache et recouvre l'articulation. Un mécanisme d'ajustement est fourni dans le but d'appliquer une force de tension sur l'articulation entre la première et la seconde attache. Un élément de remplacement du ligament est situé à l'intérieur des canaux osseux, la partie col étant en contact étroit avec les surfaces des canaux osseux à l'intérieur du premier et du second os.
