Title: (EN) Low profile apparatus for securing a therapy delivery device within a burr hole
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

Apparatus for securing a therapy delivery device relative to a burr hole. In one embodiment, the apparatus includes a base that is securable to bone, without the use of fasteners, either before or after insertion of the therapy delivery device into the burr hole. The base may frictionally engage the delivery device, e.g., receive it with interference, to secure the device relative to the burr hole. The base may have a relatively low profile such that a flange portion of the base extends only minimally above a cranial surface, e.g., about 4 millimeters or less.
