Title: IMPLANTABLE COMPENSATING SLEEVE FOR AN ENDOPROSTHESIS
Abstract:
The invention relates to an implantable compensating sleeve (1) for an endoprosthesis, to be applied between a longitudinal implant section of a first implant (2), and a second implant that encompasses the longitudinal implant section of said first implant, said compensating sleeve (1) taking the form of a sheath having a sheath body (3) and a passage (4), running all the way from the proximal to the distal end of the sheath body, for receiving said longitudinal implant section of the first implant (2), the sheath body (3) being divided, by means of slits (7.1 - 7.16) which cut into the sheath body (3) in the longitudinal direction and proceed alternately from the distal (5) and from the proximal edge (6) of the sheath body, into undulating segments (8) each comprising two longitudinal arms (9.1 - 9.16), and said sheath body (3) being radially extensible in at least one subsection, wherein, on the inner surface (10) of the sheath body (3) facing the passage (4), at least one dome (12.1 - 12.8) is designed which extends in the longitudinal direction of an undulating segment (8.1 - 8.8), forming an inner profile (11) that protrudes into the passage (4).
