  • Patent number: 7316684
    Abstract: A multiaxial connection osteosynthesis system for the spine having a bone anchor, a connector and a connecting member. The bone anchor may be implanted into a vertebral body with a connector being attached to a head of the bone anchor. The connector includes a seat for receiving the connecting member. As the connecting member is locked into position it causes walls of the connector to inwardly deform and lock the head of the bone anchor relative to the connector.

  • Patent number: 6454805
    Abstract: The invention concerns an implant comprising a body with an upper surface and a lower surface capable of pressing on the vertebral end-plate located immediately above and beneath and having further at least a through aperture emerging on the upper and lower surfaces. The invention is characterized in that the implant further comprises an anchoring member mounted in such a way as to be capable of moving in the aperture. The said anchoring member includes a support part adjacent to a first vertebral end-plate, and at least a projecting anchoring element extending from the support part towards the opposite vertebral end-plate. Thus, when the implant is compressed between the vertebral end-plates, the anchoring member is stressed by the first vertebral end-plate at the support part to move relative to the body and the at least providing projecting element overlaps the body surface facing the opposite vertebral end-plate and is anchored therein.

  • Patent number: 6309390
    Abstract: A device for backbone osteosynthesis having a bone anchoring element, a linking rod for linking the anchoring element with other anchoring elements, an intermediate element, a swivel linkage between the intermediate element first part and the bone anchoring element, a clamping linkage between the intermediate element second part and the intervertebral linking rod, and a locking mechanism for the swivel and the clamping linkages. The clamping linkage includes a clip with two branches laterally adjusted from the swivel and open opposite same. The locking mechanism acts on the branches in the region of their free ends so as to stress the latter towards each other.

  • Patent number: 6287309
    Abstract: A system for osteosynthesis of the spine. The system includes at least two pedicular screws and a linking plate for linking the screws together in an essentially rigid manner. Each screw has a bone anchoring threaded part, a non-circular section head, and a threaded end shank adapted to cooperate with a nut. The plate has at least one opening adapted to have the threaded end shank of a screw passed through it and be trapped between the screw head and the nut. A locking member is also provided for preventing relative angular movement between the heads of the screws and the linking plate. The locking member is adapted to be inserted between the plate and the screw head and includes a bore through which the threaded end shank of the screw passes, and further includes a first locking cooperation of shapes with the screw head and a second cooperation of shapes with the plate.

  • Patent number: 6090113
    Abstract: According to an embodiment of the invention, an apparatus is provided that includes positioning equipment for an osteosynthesis system for a spinal column. The positioning equipment includes two elongate anchoring members each designed to be anchored in a vertebra of the column, and an elongate anchoring linking element designed to connect the anchoring members together. The system is designed to have an unlocked configuration in which each anchoring member can turn with respect to the anchoring linking element about a first axis perpendicular to a longitudinal direction of the anchoring member and perpendicular to a longitudinal direction of the anchoring linking element. The system is also designed to have a locked configuration in which each anchoring member is rigidly fixed to the anchoring linking element. The equipment also includes to arms designed to be fixed removably to the two respective anchoring members and an elongate arm linking element designed to connect part of each arm together.
