Device for posterior fixation of the spine
(57) Abstract:The invention relates to medical equipment, namely, devices for the surgical treatment of the spine and can be used for functional insolvency of the front and rear structures of the spine resulting from injuries and diseases of the spine after surgery - hemilaminectomy. The invention is directed to a device for posterior fixation of the spine, allowing to stabilize vertebrae in two mutually perpendicular planes, which prevents anterior-posterior and lateral displacement of the vertebrae. For this purpose, the device comprises a rod 1 with thread along which move the brackets 2, consisting of a square reference sites 3, from the adjacent sides of which depart mutually perpendicular flat hooks 4. For tightening the bracket 2 between itself and the fixing nuts are used to 5 and their blocking and counter-nut 6. 3 Il. The invention relates to medical equipment, namely, devices for the surgical treatment of the spine, and can be used for functional insolvency of the front and rear structures of the spine (vertebral bodies, spinous processes, DCI of hemilaminectomy.Known latch spine, containing two plates with longitudinal slots, brackets and fasteners. Guide brackets mounted hooks and fastening elements made in the form of a rod with a disc-shaped thickening in the middle part, carried out through holes cut flat springs (SU, ed. St. N 1484348, class. And 61 In 17/70, 1989).Disadvantages of analogue: the known device is a metal complex structure, which requires mandatory bilateral exposure of the spinous processes and handles, which increases the invasiveness and duration of surgery.The closest to the technical nature of the claimed device is selected as the closest analogue device for fixation of the spine, consisting of a threaded rod moving along his arms with hooks and fixation and blocking (SU, patent N 4269179, class. And 61 G 5/01, 1981).The disadvantage of analogue is that the fixation of the vertebrae is in the same plane that do not provide sufficient stability of the spine, as well as possible secondary postoperative deformity.The invention is directed is but perpendicular planes, what prevents anterior-posterior and lateral displacement of the vertebrae.The invention consists in the following.Device for posterior fixation of the spine consists of a threaded rod and moving along the pair of brackets with hooks. Each bracket contains the square of the reference area from the adjacent sides of which depart two mutually perpendicular hook. On the rod with one hand bracket set nut, the lock nut.The present device differs from the closest analogue of the fact that each bracket contains the square of the reference area from the adjacent sides of which depart two mutually perpendicular hook.In Fig. 1 shows a device for posterior fixation of the spine, General view; Fig. 2 brackets with hooks; Fig. 3 the threaded rod, nuts and locknuts.Device for posterior fixation of the spine contains a rod 1 with thread along which move the brackets 2, consisting of a square reference sites 3, from the adjacent sides of which depart mutually perpendicular flat hooks 4. For tightening the bracket 2 between itself and the fixing nuts are used to 5 and their lock contracep for individual selection during operation, they are made from a solid metal plate, for example, from medical steel, Nickel-titanium.The device is used as follows.After the usual one-sided rear or rear-side access skeletonize spinous processes and pedicles of the vertebrae 1-2 above and 1-2 below the damaged vertebra. Hooks 4 is slid over the pedicles and spinous processes of the vertebrae above and below the level of injury. It is possible to use the shape memory effect, which has nickelide titanium. Nuts 5 brackets 2 draw between themselves to restore stability to the spine. Then tighten the lock nut 6 to prevent arbitrary spin. The operation is completed by suturing soft tissues. The duration of the operation using the proposed device is reduced by 1.5-2.0 times in comparison with the use of known devices for fixation of the spine.The application of this device warns the anterior-posterior and lateral displacement of the vertebrae, it is possible to install on one side of the spinous processes and the arches of the vertebrae, the design is easily installed and removed without additional trauma of the spine and spinal is nick, contains the threaded rod moving along the brackets with hooks and fixation and blocking, characterized in that each bracket contains the square of the reference area from the adjacent sides of which depart two mutually perpendicular hook.
