Title (EN) FLEXIBLE FASTENING BAND CONNECTOR
(FR) RACCORD DE BANDE DE FIXATION SOUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) A flexible fastening band connector can comprises a recess to receive a distal end portion of a flexible fastening band and lumen to receive the proximal end portion of the flexible fastening band. The lumen guides the proximal end portion of the flexible fastening band toward a fastening mechanism. The flexible fastening band connector can comprise an opening to receive a spinal rod. In operation, the spinal rod is coupled to additional devices to secure the spinal rod to portions of one or more vertebra. In some embodiments, a method of performing an operation, e.g. a spinal operation, on a patient using the disclosed connector is provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne un raccord de bande de fixation souple qui peut comporter un renfoncement, pour recevoir une partie extrémité distale d'une bande de fixation souple, et une lumière, pour recevoir la partie extrémité proximale de la bande de fixation souple. La lumière guide la partie extrémité proximale de la bande de fixation souple vers un mécanisme de fixation. Le raccord de bande de fixation souple peut comporter une ouverture pour recevoir une tige rachidienne. En fonctionnement, la tige rachidienne est couplée à des dispositifs supplémentaires pour fixer la tige rachidienne à des parties d'une ou de plusieurs vertèbres. Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un procédé pour pratiquer une opération, par exemple une opération rachidienne, sur un patient à l'aide du raccord de l'invention.
