Title (EN) ANCHOR HAVING A CONTROLLED DRIVER ORIENTATION
(FR) ANCRAGE À ORIENTATION COMMANDÉE DU MANDRIN
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to an interference screw having a body with a proximal end, distal end, and longitudinal axis extending between thereinbetween. The screw further includes threads for fixing the screw into bone. The screw further includes a through bore defined by the body. The through bore extends between the proximal and distal ends along the longitudinal axis, and has a surface. The screw further includes a controlling member (440) formed by the through bore surface. To install the screw into bone, a surgeon turns the screw with a driver that engages with the controlling member. The driver only engages the controlling member when it is in a driving orientation with respect to the controlling member. Advantageously, with this "one-way" engagement the surgeon can control and confirm the orientation of the driver without seeing the driver and/or screw.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une vis d'interférence comprenant un corps pourvu d'une extrémité proximale, d'une extrémité distale et d'un axe longitudinal s'étendant entre les deux. La vis comprend en outre des filetages permettant de fixer la vis dans l'os. La vis comprend en outre un alésage traversant défini par le corps. L'alésage traversant s'étend entre les extrémités proximale et distale le long de l'axe longitudinal, et comprend une surface. La vis comprend en outre un élément de commande (440) formé par la surface de l'alésage traversant. Pour installer la vis dans l'os, un chirurgien tourne la vis à l'aide d'un mandrin qui entre en prise avec l'élément de commande. Le mandrin entre en prise uniquement avec l'élément de commande lorsqu'il se trouve dans une orientation de commande par rapport à l'élément de commande. De manière avantageuse, grâce à cette mise en prise « à sens unique », le chirurgien peut commander et confirmer l'orientation du mandrin sans voir ni mandrin ni la vis.
