Title (EN) CRANIOPLASTY PLATE ASSEMBLY WITH PIVOTAL STRUTS
(FR) ENSEMBLE PLAQUE DE CRANIOPLASTIE À ENTRETOISES PIVOTANTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An adjustable cranioplasty plate assembly is provided for use following a craniectomy. The assembly includes a ring which is attached to the skull around the skull opening and a plate adjustably mounted to the ring. The plate is moveable between a raised position spaced above the ring and a lower position substantially flush with the ring. The plurality of extendable and retractable struts extends between the ring and the plate to provide the plate adjustability. The plurality of stay cables extending between the ring and the plate provide lateral stability in the raised position. The assembly replaces the native bone and eliminates the need for subsequent cranioplasty surgery. In one embodiment, the plate includes a rigid central portion, three rigid mounting tabs, and a plurality of malleable tapered perimeter petals which provide a smooth interface between the plate and the skull of the patient.
(FR)La présente invention décrit un ensemble plaque de cranioplastie ajustable prévu pour une utilisation suite à une craniectomie. L’ensemble comprend un anneau qui est fixé au crâne autour de l’ouverture du crâne et une plaque montée de manière réglable sur l’anneau. La plaque est mobile entre une position relevée espacée au-dessus de l’anneau et une position abaissée sensiblement alignée sur l’anneau. La pluralité des entretoises extensibles et rétractables s’étend entre l’anneau et la plaque afin d’assurer le réglage de la plaque. La pluralité de câbles de support s’étendant entre l’anneau et la plaque fournissent une stabilité latérale en position relevée. L’ensemble remplace l’os natif et élimine le besoin de chirurgie de cranioplastie ultérieure. Dans un mode de réalisation, la plaque comprend une partie centrale rigide, trois pattes de montage rigides, et une pluralité de pétales de périmètre conique malléables qui assurent une interface lisse entre la plaque et le crâne du patient.
