The scope of the invention

This invention relates to a container for a device, in particular an implant containing protective case.

Background of the invention

Devices that need to be kept in a sterile condition, such as implants that are intended for implantation in a living organism, usually placed and transported in a container of the kit or set. During transportation and storage of the implant sterile conditions for it are provided by the holder, and open it directly before use of the implant, for example, during the operation of implanting.

In many cases, the inner part of the case should preserve sterility until its discovery and retrieval device. In addition, it is necessary to apply the device to the person, such as a surgeon or dentist can easily remove the device from its case.

Thus, the basic requirements for a container of this type should be as follows:

- ensuring sterility during transport and storage and

- ensuring convenient handling of the device.

To achieve this goal for several years has offered many different cases, such as described in patent documents US 4856648, US 5368160, US 5538428, US 5558230, US 5755575, WO 98/26726, US 4671410 and US 4712681.

One of the well-known case which is the case with double casing, containing the first external pad, which is made with the possibility of providing a hermetic seal so that its interior space was protected from outside contamination. The outer gasket is arranged to accommodate the second inner container containing sterilized device.

The double hull of the case provides two degrees of purity, which is favorable for the handling of this case. If you want to use the device case is first placed in a sterile zone, where you remove the outer gasket. Then the inner container is transferred into a sterile area, where its open and remove the sterilized device.

The design of the case with double case usually occurs in containers for sterile devices. In particular, the invention is suitable for indoor container holder with double case, i.e. to the container, which is nearest to the sterile device, but this is not its only use, since this invention can also be used for the case with a single case without first outer strip.

In the patent document US 4856648 (Krueger) described the case of conventional type with double casing. The first outer case has a cylindrical shape tightly closed in a standard cover, su is bedstvie what the space inside is maintained sterile. The first case is used to hold the second case in the form of capsules. With their open end of the second case in the form of an ampoule equipped with a removable plug or cap that holds the implant in such a way that during storage, the implant is connected only with a stopper or lid, but not with the surrounding walls of the case. When removing the implant tube is separated from the casing in the form of capsules and is used as a handle for extracting the implant from its case. The tube is also useful as a handle for manipulation with the device during subsequent implantation procedure. Containers other kind described in patent documents US 5368160 (Leuschen), US 5538428 (Staubli), US 5558230 (Fischer) and US 5755575 (Biggs).

In other embodiments, these structures sterile device is first connected to the manipulator. Manipulator, in turn, may be held in the inner container. This manipulator is designed in such a way that it provides a convenient gripping device for extracting a sterile device and for handling.

For example, in the patent document WO 98/26726 (Institute Straumann AG) describes a container of the above type. The implant is connected with a landing slot, which, in turn, is connected to the manipulator. The container is equipped with an intermediate wall, which holds the mounting slot and accordingly the pulse is antac. Thus, the implant is retained within the container, does not actually contact with the container.

All of the above containers subject to disadvantage, which is that when removing the sterile device from the inner case or capsules, there is a danger of the implementation of the random fluctuations of the device, causing it to touch the inner walls of the case or capsules. In this case, the surface of the device can be contaminated by residues of the material of the container. This is of particular importance if the device is an implant designed for implantation into the patient. Contamination of the container material can interfere with the integration of the implant with the bone of the patient during the implantation. Therefore, the requirement of the surface of the implant before implantation is very strict. Under these circumstances it is extremely important to protect the surface of the implant from foreign material during the General procedure of manipulation, including transportation, storage and end removing the implant from the container.

This problem of contamination of the device by the particles of the material of the container is referred to below as the problem of contamination of the material.

In the patent document US 4671410 (Hansson and others) described the container ensuring the purity of the implant, what redstem which the problem of contamination of the material to a certain extent it is permitted. The implant is screwed into the internal capsule for durable hold it in close contact with the capsule material. The problem of contamination of the material is partially solved by the fact that the capsule is made of the same material as the implant. In this case, if any particles of the material of the capsule will appear on the implant surface, they probably will not have such a negative impact on the integration of the implant with the bone, what would the particles of another material. The container is additionally equipped with a hermetically sealed outer envelope surrounding the capsule, and a positioning element, designed for installation of the capsule within the outer shell in position.

However, the container described in patent document US 4671410, has several shortcomings.

First, this solution is costly, because the capsule should be run from the same material as the implant, which is usually very expensive material, for example titanium or a titanium alloy.

Secondly, there is the problem of beauty, since it is known that implants extracted from the capsules of this type have scratched the surface and looks worn out, possibly due to wear when screwing in the cap material. Such unpleasant appearance is not appreciated in the market and is the first obstacle to commercial success of the implant.

Another container of the above-mentioned capsule of the type described in the patent document US 4712681 (Branemark and others).

The above-described problems associated with the manipulation of the device, particularly evident in the case of small dimensions of the device and container. Treatment of a dental implant, obviously, is more delicate than treatment, for example, an orthopedic implant.

The invention

The problem to which this invention is directed, is the creation of a container for small devices, in particular an implant, providing prevention which is dangerous for the implantation process contamination of the device with the container material and the generation of scratches on the surface of the device when its in the container.

This task is solved in that the proposed container containing a protective case, and also according to the invention containing the holder device is arranged to hold the device and connected to a protective casing for effecting movement relative to it between a storage position of the device in which the device is protected by a protective housing, and to extract device; and contains guides the limiting trajectory for a given movement of the holder device to consider is Ino protective housing, moreover, the desired trajectory is designed so that the device when holding the holder device is held at a distance from the protective housing.

In this application the device held by the holder device can be any small-sized device such as an implant, as well as multiple device such as an implant, is connected to a manipulation tool. In the preferred case, the container should only come in contact manipulation tool.

The term "directing means" should be understood any means, the function of which is to create a given geometric path for movement of the cradle relative to the protective housing.

Because a given trajectory is designed so that the device when holding the holder device is held at a distance from the protective housing, the result is no danger of contact between the particles of the material from which made the case, with the device during removal of the device from the container. Thus, this invention solves the above problem of contamination of the material.

In addition, in the absence of any direct contaminating contact between the protective housing and the device is also solved videopokerpracticebuy the problem of scratches on the device. The term "protective housing" should be understood case that protects the device mainly from touching the manipulation of the container, i.e. providing protection for manipulation. Not necessarily to the protective housing defended the specified device and also from foreign substances such as dust, thereby ensuring the purity protection, but this protection is not excluded. If the case, as stated above, has a hole, it will provide sufficient protection for manipulation. However, it will not provide full protection of the purity of the device.

Because the device is held at a distance from the protective housing, the protective housing may be made of any material providing the necessary conditions for sterilization, durability, etc. So you can use a relatively inexpensive material such as plastic.

The proposed container is well suited to ensure sterility, when it is used as an internal container in the case with double hull.

The proposed container is designed for small devices such as dental implants, as encountered difficulties associated with the handling of such devices is significantly reduced.

According to one variant of the protective carrying out the invention the second housing has a hole, which is oriented transversely relative to the predetermined path and through which the holder device can be moved between the specified storage location and the specified position to retrieve.

The holder device is arranged to move through the opening in the protective housing, is a practical solution for ensuring a given trajectory, in which the device is held by the holder device is held at a distance from the protective housing. Thus, the protective housing can be fully or partially offset with the device held by the holder device that helps to remove the device from the container without accidental contact of the device with a protective case.

In the preferred case, the position of the extraction device is a position in which the device is held by the holder device is completely outside of the protective casing, which reduces the risk of accidental contact of the device with the holder.

Alternatively, the extraction device may be a position in which the device is held by the holder device, partially located outside of the protective casing and thus it is available and extracted from the part of the holder device, which is not agreed the protective housing. In the preferred case, the position to retrieve the devices most devices held by the holder device is located outside of the protective casing, so that the device can be easily removed from the container without contact with the protective case.

Preferably, in order to extract the device was the position in which the holder device is outside the protective housing so that the device when in the holder device open for access. This design is particularly favorable for the retention device supported by the holder device, away from the protective case when it is ejected from the container.

According to a preferred variant implementation of the invention the protective housing has an elongated shape.

In the preemptive case, the protective casing has a short end having a hole through which the holder device can move at a specified desired trajectory.

Preferably, the specified desired trajectory been essentially parallel to the longitudinal direction of the protective housing.

In the preferred case of a specified movement of the holder device is a sliding movement.

In one embodiment, a directing means sod is rat sliding element and the channel for sliding. The sliding element and the channel slides provide sliding movement in a predetermined path between a protective case and a holder device. Draws attention to the fact that the channel design is slipping and the sliding element can be easily performed so as to manage a given trajectory in the desired way. This also implies that the movement of the slide, which is provided guide means according to this variant execution, you can easily manage and this movement provides adequate movement in a predetermined path between a protective case and a holder device.

In the preferred case, the adjacent portions respectively cover and holder device have complementary shapes, forming a specified sliding element and the specified channel to slide or Vice versa. Thus, the sliding element and the channel for sliding can form an integrated part of the cover and holder device. The result is a simple design, which has the advantage both in terms of production objectives, and ensure good performance characteristics of the container.

Under the channel for sliding refers to the means, the direction of the length of which determines the direction of movement of the slide. Under a sliding tablet PC basic information is understood that the device, made slidable in the channel for sliding during movement of the slide. Thus, the channel for sliding can represent, for example, a groove, a roller or edge. The sliding element may also be a groove, a roller or a rib, and in addition, the ball or hook. The examples are not exhaustive.

It should be noted that, although the length of the channel for sliding determines the direction of movement of the slide, the length of a given path is also affected by the length or shape of the moving element.

In one embodiment of the invention, the protective housing has a channel for sliding, and the holder device includes a sliding element made slidable on the specified channel for sliding.

According to one variant of execution of the invention the container has an outer wall formed with a protective case, when the holder device is made contiguous with the specified outer wall, so that the specified device is protected by an outer wall, when the holder device is in the storage position.

In this embodiment, the device is protected by an outer wall which provides a protective case, when the holder device is in the storage position. In the outer wall, which is about especial protective housing, is a simple and effective protection for devices in the storage position.

In another embodiment, the proposed container when the holder device is in the storage position, the container has an outer wall, the protective housing includes a first part of the wall, and the holder device includes the second part of the wall, and the first part of the wall and the second wall together form found on the outer wall to protect the device when the holder device is in the storage position.

Thus, in this embodiment, the entire outer wall of the container is created at the storage location, at least two parts. The protective housing includes a first part of the wall, and the holder device includes the second part of the wall. It is implied that, when the holder unit is moved from a position of storage, violated the integrity of the entire outer wall of the container.

In a special embodiment of the container corresponding to the above-described variant of execution, when the holder device is in the storage position, the container has an outer wall with four side walls, the protective housing includes a first portion of the wall having three side walls, and the holder device includes a second part of the walls, with one side wall, and the first part of the wall and the other is part of the wall together form found on the outer wall, four side walls, designed to protect the device when the holder device is in the storage position.

Container with four walls, resulting from the above scenarios, easy to handle and store. Protective case with three walls and a holder device with one wall define part of the container that the user can easily grab the hand during the movement of parts between the provisions storage and retrieval.

In the preferred case, protective case and a holder device or at least one of them should be equipped with gripping means to grip when moving the holder device in a predetermined path is performed manually.

Such gripping means to facilitate opening of the container.

According to a variant implementation of the invention the protective housing has an access opening through which at least part of the device open for access when the holder device is in the storage position of the device.

This access hole can be used to configure the device when it is still in the container. An example of a configuration may be joining manipulation means to the device.

This has the advantage, compared with the prototype described in the patent document US 4856648, in which the device hold the by the cover, used as a handle to remove the device. When using this type of container the person manipulating the device, should take cover in order to retrieve the device, further complicating the configuration at the end of the device. In accordance with the proposed option execution becomes possible to apply different settings at the end of the device, while the device is still retained in the holder device in the storage position. Such a configuration may be joining tool or manipulative means to the end of the device. Thus proposes a practical solution that allows manipulating device through a simple procedure to configure the end portion of the device in accordance with its own requirements.

In the preferred case, the holder device is arranged to hold the device from the normal transverse direction relative to the longitudinal direction of the device. Under normal transverse direction in this context is understood to mean a direction that enables the conversion of the end portion of the device, for example, in the connection with the different tools.

This design could facilitate access to part of the disorder, supported by the holder device, in the storage position and in position to retrieve.

In the preferred case, the container may include a locking means to prevent inadvertent movement of the holder device of the storage positions. The locking means can also be provided to prevent complete separation of the holder device from the protective housing.

Such locking means can be mechanical, amplifying friction or snap-locking means or their combinations.

The proposed container in the preferred case can be made in the outer gasket to create a container with double hull.

The outer strip, in turn, can initially provide the outer insulating foil to ensure purity, but also to be able to visually determine the integrity of the container.

A detailed description of the preferred embodiment of the invention,

On figa and 1b depict a first embodiment of a proposed the first container. The container 1 is adapted to accommodate the device 2, in this case in the form of the dental implant. The container has an elongated protective housing 3 and the holder 4 devices, configured to hold the implant 2. The holder 4 devices connected to the protective housing 3 and is moved between the storage position of the device (figa) and regulations to remove the device (fig.1b). The container 1 further comprises directing means 5, is made to limit given trajectory 6 (indicated by the phantom arrow in figa), which determines the movement of the holder 4 of the device relative to the protective housing 3.

The specified path 6 is designed in such a way that the implant 2 held by the holder 4 of the device is at a distance from the protective housing 3.

In the storage position (figa) implant 2 held by the holder 4 devices, securely protected by a protective housing 3 during transport and storage.

In this embodiment, the position for extraction (fig.1b) represents a position in which the implant 2 held by the holder 4 devices extracted from the protective housing 3 and is therefore well accessible and removable from the container 1. Preferably, the Department of the implant 2 from the holder 4 device universal the ILO in the direction marked is shown in fig.1b arrow.

You can see that the device 2 is shifted in the first direction (along a given trajectory in order to reach the position for extraction, and then in a second direction perpendicular to the first direction, in order to extract it from the container.

According to the invention under "guides funds" means any funds intended for education of a given geometric path 6 to move the holder 4 of the device relative to the protective housing 3. In an embodiment shown in figa and 1b, guide means include a sliding element 7 and channel 8 for slide, and this trajectory 6 is determined by the lengths of the specified channel 8 for sliding and the sliding element 7.

In this embodiment, the sliding element 7 is an integral part of the holder 4 devices. Channel 8 for sliding is a groove or a lateral slot in the housing 3. The edges of the specified slot is configured to respective two opposite side edges of the sliding element 7.

In order during storage and opening of the container to hold the sliding element 7 channel 8 for sliding channel 8 for slip has a locking means (not shown). In PR doctitle case, the locking means may include notches, passing along the edges of the groove 8.

In the application of this design with a sliding element 7 and channel 8 for sliding movement of the holder 4 devices in a predetermined path 6 between its storage position, shown in figa, and to extract, shown in fig.1b is easily controlled by moving the slide.

In this embodiment, the desired trajectory 6 essentially parallel to the longitudinal direction of the elongated protective housing 3. Housing 3 has an opening 9, which passes transversely to the predetermined path 6 through which to move the holder 4 devices. When the position for extraction of the holder 4, the device comes out of the protective housing 3 through the opening 9 at such a distance at which the implant 2 is easily accessible in the holder 4 devices. In the depicted embodiment, the implant 2 in position to extract is located above the opening 9 full.

The protective housing 3 contains the first part 10' of the wall and the holder 4, the device contains the second part 10" of the wall, which together form the outer wall 10 for fencing device 2, when the holder 4 is in the storage position, shown in figa. When performing movement protective housing 3 and the holder 4 of the device in side from each other, the outer article is NSV loses its integrity.

In this embodiment, the second part 10" of the wall also forms a sliding element 7 of the guide means 5. The second part 10" of the wall additionally has an external gripping means 11 to facilitate the manipulation with the opening of the container.

It should be noted that only a small portion of the implant surface 2 in contact with the holder 4 of the device when it is in the container. This is an advantage, especially if the device has a sensitive surface, as is the case of some types of implants.

The holder 4 of the device holds the implant 2 from moving in the transverse direction of the device 2. This means that it is possible to carry out the adjustment at the end of the device during its fixed position in the holder 4 of the device.

On figa and 2b depict a second embodiment of the proposed container. From fig.2b can be seen that in this embodiment, the device 2 held by the holder 4 of the device, partially out of its protective housing 3, when the holder 4 is in position for retrieval. However, the device 2 should be in such position that it can be extracted from the container 1 without contact device 2 with any part of the container.

In the second embodiment, the protective the second body 3 is cylindrical and forms an outer wall 10, enclosing the device 2. The holder 4 of the device is made contiguous with the specified outer wall 10, so that the device 2 is secured to the specified outer wall 10 when the holder 4 of the device in its storage position, shown in figa. Directing means 5 include a narrow groove 8 (channel for sliding), formed in the wall 3 of the housing, and an elongated bar 7 (rolling element), which is integral with the holder 4 of the device.

In the first embodiment shown in figa and 1b, the device 2 is of the implant. In the second embodiment, shown in figa and 2b, the device 2 includes an implant 15 connected to the handling device 14. More specifically, the actual implant 15 is never in direct contact with the holder 4 devices, it is only indirectly related to it through the manipulation device 14.

In the second embodiment, the invention provides a means of restraint (not shown)designed to hold the sliding element 7 channel 8 for sliding during storage and opening of the container. In this case, the retaining means include a bottom portion of the holder 4 devices. The specified lower part has a transverse extension for a tight fit inside the housing 3 and the longitudinal R is SIRENIA, large enough to make the lower part served the function of stabilizing the movement of the holder 4 of the device relative to the housing 3.

If the holder 4 of the device is completely separated from the housing 3, the lower part can serve as a platform on which to place the holder 4 devices. In this case, there is a possibility to first separate the holder 4 from the device body 3 and place it on the table, and then retrieve the device 2 from the holder 4 of the device.

In this second embodiment, the retaining element can be changed and, for example, contain the longitudinal edges of the body 3, which protrude above the channel for sliding and between which you can install the sliding element 7.

The container may also be equipped with a removable sealing lid, located on the upper and lower ends of the protective housing. Such covers provide protection of the purity in addition to protection under the manipulation of already provided housing. Such a high purity protection can also be made in the embodiments, execution, shown in figa and 1b.

On figa-3f depict a third preferred embodiment of the proposed container. Like parts are assigned the same codes as on figa and 1b.

Let us now consider the third embodiment of the invention with reference to figa-f. The piano is GA, depicting a three-dimensional representation of parts of the protective housing 3 and the holder 4, the device comprising a container 1, shown separately. Also depicted outer gasket 16 of two parts, which may be contained in the container 1 to form a container with a double hull.

In the third embodiment, the protective housing 3 forms a U-shaped first portion 10' of the wall and the holder 4 of the device forms the second outer part 10" of the wall, when together they form a complete outer part 10 of the wall when the holder 4 is in the storage position, similarly to the first variant implementation, shown in figa and 1b.

The container 1 shown in figa-3f, equipped with a detachable locking means 13, which serves to hold the holder 4 devices and protective housing 3 when in position for retrieval.

In an embodiment of the proposed container shown in figa-3f, guide means 5 include a sliding element 7 and channel 8 for sliding, and the specified desired trajectory 6 is determined by the lengths of the specified channel 8 for sliding and the sliding element 7.

In this embodiment, the sliding element 7 is an integral part of the holder 4 devices. Channel 8 for slide is formed by a groove or side holes, made the housing 3. The edges of the specified slots have longitudinal grooves made with the possibility respective accommodate two opposite side edges of the sliding element 7. Thus, the grooves act as retaining elements regulating the position and movement of the moving element 7 channel 8 for sliding.

On fig.3b third embodiment of the invention shown in position for retrieval. This type is very clear how the latch 12 of the holder 4 of the device holds the device 2 through the support structure. In this case, the device comprises an implant 15 and manipulation device 14. You can see that from the holder 4 of the device in contact only the manipulation device 14.

Manipulative means 14, shown in fig.3b contains two parts: the first part is connected to the implant 15, and a second part connected with the first part and comes with an easy to manipulate form. As the holder device holds the device against lateral displacement relatively to the device, it becomes possible, for example, to release the second part of the handling means 14 from the first side while the device 2 in the holder 4 devices. If the second part is removed, the instrument used for the implantation of the implant in the jaw of the patient, can be connec the n to the first part.

Figs side depicts the holder 4 of the device shown in figa container. The diagram clearly visible gripping means 11 of the holder device, containing a number of elongated ridges.

On figs and 3d shows how the holder 4 devices can hold the device 2, when the device 2 is a single component device, such as an implant. It should be noted that only a small portion of the implant surface in contact with the holder 4 of the device.

It is shown that the locking means 13 contains two parts (fig.3d and five). The first part is a two fixing grooves formed in the protective housing 3. The second part contains two elastic pterygoid design obtained from the material holder 4 devices. From pigs shows that the wing-shaped structure formed in such a way that protrude from the sides of the holder 4 of the device that must be inserted into the housing groove 3. When the container is in the assembled state, and the holder is inserted into the groove of the protective housing 3, pterygoid designs are pressed into the grooves. When the holder device is in the storage position, the wings are slightly pressed against the grooves of the protective housing. As the holder 4 of the device is moved relative to the protective housing 3, the specified light prizemaster frictional resistance, which provides ease of movement of the holder 4 devices. When the holder 4 of the device is moved to a position in which the wings are aligned with the slots of the protective housing, the wings with a snap included in the notches and thus provide a stop continuous movement of the holder 4 of the device from its protective housing 3.

In a variant implementation of the invention, shown in figa-3f, locking means are made to prevent complete separation of the holder 4 of the device from its protective housing 3. In other embodiments of the invention can be applied detachable fixing means which fixes the holder 4 devices in the storage position to prevent unexpected movement of the holder 4 of the device relative to the protective housing 3.

Figa above depicts the holder 4 of the device shown in figa container 1. The diagram clearly visible wings locking means 13.

Five side depicts the protective housing 3 shown in figa container 1. The recess for the locking means 13 is clearly visible on the side of the case 3.

Fig.3f above depicts the protective housing 3 shown in figa container 1. When viewed from above, on protective housing 3 can be seen that two of its side walls curved inward, which is very useful for capturing and protective housing 3 and the La manipulate.

In two opposite walls of the protective housing is made of notches 17. These notches are used for easy attachment of the container 1 in a rack or similar element, for example, during Assembly or opening of the container.

Figure 4 shows the fourth embodiment of the invention. Similar elements are denoted by the same number of items as in the previous drawings.

An embodiment shown in figure 4, is similar to option implementation, shown in figa and 2b. The main difference is the design of the guide means 5. In this fourth embodiment, as in the second embodiment, shown in figa-2b, guide means consists of a sliding element 7 and channel 8 for sliding. However, the channel 8 is formed for sliding the inner side of the solid wall 10 of the protective housing 3. The sliding element 7 is a part cross-sectional, densely included in a cylindrical protective housing 3. In the storage position the sliding element 7 of the cross-section is located at the end of the protective housing 3. Then the sliding element 7 is extruded from the bottom in the direction of the arrow, showing the trajectory 6, in order to reach a position to extract, in which the device 2 is opened for access.

Figure 5 shows a fifth embodiment of the invention.

the Container has a protective housing 3 and the holder 4 devices, made with the possibility of holding device 2. The holder 4 devices connected to the protective housing 3 and is moved to a position between the storage device and to extract the device shown in figure 5. Directing means 5 is made to limit given trajectory 6 (shown in phantom arrow) to move the holder 4 of the device relative to the protective housing 3.

The specified path 6 is designed so that, when the device 2 is held by the holder 4 devices, it is held at a distance from the protective housing 3.

In this embodiment, the directing means 5 contain the hinge means 17 provided for communication between the protective housing 3 and the holder 4 of the device.

The protective housing 3 in this embodiment includes the first part 10' wall, and a holder device contains the second part 10" of the wall, the shape of which complements the first part 10' of the wall, resulting in the position storage part 10' and 10" wall form a solid wall to protect the device 2.

Of course, not necessary that the wall is formed in two parts 10' and 10" of wall in storage position was fully enclosed by a wall. It is also possible to provide a protection device 2 in the storage position of the container in partially from rytoj the wall.

The device 2 is held by the latch 12, provided in part 10" wall holder 4 devices.

When the position storage device 2 is held inside the box formed by the parts 10' and 10" walls, respectively, of the protective housing 3 and the holder 4 devices. To ensure the position to eject the holder 4 devices open by plowing up, and the motion maximize regulate the hinge means 17. During this movement maximize the holder 4 devices should be on a set path 6, and the device 2, as is easily understood from the drawings, always held without any contact with the protective case.

Under the scope of the claims of this invention are subject to natural and other variations and modifications differing from the above scenarios. For example, the shape of the protective housing 3 and the form of the holder 4 devices can be modified to provide a different form of the outer wall 10 of the container, for example, cylindrical, polygonal, etc.
