Title: APPARATUS FOR USE IN SURGERY
Abstract:
The invention provides a targeting kit suitable for use in removing an implant, especially a femoral implant, from the surrounding tissue. The targeting kit comprises (i) a mounting arrangement for releasably mounting the targeting kit on the head or neck of a femoral implant, (ii) first and second guide members, each of which is an elongate shape with a bore running along its longitudinal axis, each guide member being able to receive a drill bit through its bore, (iii) a holding arrangement for holding the first and second guide members, the holding arrangement being adjustable between a release condition, in which the positions of the first and second guide members are adjustable relative to each other, and a holding condition, in which the first and second guide members are held by the holding arrangement in a fixed position relative to each other, and (iv) a bridging arrangement between the mounting arrangement and the first and second guide members, to space the first and second guide members with respect to the mounting arrangement, with the bridging arrangement being adjustable between a release condition, in which the position of the mounting arrangement is adjustable relative to the first and second guide members, and a holding condition, in which the first and second guide members are fixedly spaced with respect to the mounting arrangement by the bridging arrangement. The mounting arrangement can be secured onto the head or neck of the implant, with the first and second guide members being located on the neck or shoulder of the implant, with the first guide member located at the anterior of the implant and the second guide member located at the posterior of the implant, the first guide member being angled such that its longitudinal axis is spaced from and substantially parallel to the anterior surface of the implant and the second guide member being angled such that its longitudinal axis is spaced from and substantially parallel to the posterior surface of the implant.
