Title: HIGH-PRECISION BONE REALIGNMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
A new high-precision bone realignment system is composed by a plate and a plate opening device, for use in human or animal bone angle correction surgery, also known as osteotomy. This system comprises a millimetric mechanical device for angle corrections that require opening wedges and can be used in various bones. The system makes continuous corrections of bone deformities possible on a millimetric scale, dispenses with steps of the conventional procedure and increases the safety and accuracy of the surgical procedure. Besides being less invasive than the conventional method, it allows other procedures to be performed during the same surgical intervention, such as ligament reconstruction and treatment of cartilage and meniscus injuries in the case of the knee joint.
