Abstract
(EN)
An ankle clamp (10) apparatus for use with tibial cutting instruments has a frame (11) with pivoting arms (13,14) attached for gripping a patient's ankle during use. The arms (13,14) can be held open with latches (35,36) prior to placement and quickly released to grip the patient's leg by depressing the latches (35,36). The device can be operated by a surgeon using only one hand to depress the latches (35,36).
