Title (EN) BONE BED DRILLING TEMPLATE
(FR) GABARIT DE FORAGE DE LIT OSSEUX
Abstract:
(EN) A method and device for ensuring better placement of an implant, such as an implant that is affixed via bone bed drilling to a recipient's skull. In particular, the technology comprises an apparatus and method of deploying the same that can lead to an improved goodness of fit of the implant. The apparatus and process of the present disclosure are particularly applicable to affixing auditory prostheses such as cochlear implants. The implant is provided with a template that has the same dimensions as the implant that is to be affixed. This template has a dye-impregnated material on its distal surface that is used during bone bed drilling to identify bony spots that have to be drilled away to get a flat surface and a better alignment of the implant with the bone bed. The template may also be provided in kit form.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif pour assurer un meilleur placement d'un implant, tel qu'un implant qui est fixé par l'intermédiaire d'un forage de lit osseux sur le crâne d'un receveur. En particulier, la technologie comprend un appareil et un procédé de déploiement de celui-ci qui peut conduire à une qualité d'ajustement améliorée de l'implant. L'appareil et le procédé de la présente invention sont particulièrement applicables à la fixation de prothèses auditives telles que des implants cochléaires. L'implant est pourvu d'un gabarit qui a les mêmes dimensions que l'implant à fixer. Ce gabarit a un matériau imprégné de colorant sur sa surface distale qui est utilisé pendant le forage de lit osseux (appui osseux) pour identifier les points osseux qui doivent être forés pour obtenir une surface plate et un meilleur alignement de l'implant avec le lit osseux. Le gabarit peut également être fourni sous forme de kit.
