  • Patent number: 10226352
    Abstract: An implant for insertion between vertebral bodies of the spinal column, with a main body which is formed along a longitudinal axis and at least one end of which an attachment plate with a contact surface for attachment to an adjacent vertebral body is disposed, which plate is mounted on main body pivotably about a pivot axis, arranged substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal axis, and which can be fixed at an angle relative to it or relative to the longitudinal axis. The main body is assigned at least one clamping element. The attachment plate has a clamping surface on a side facing the main body, and the clamping element is movable between a pivot configuration, in which the attachment plate is pivotable, and a clamping configuration, in which the angle and thereby the attachment plate are fixed by an interaction of the clamping element with the clamping surface.

  • Publication number: 20080300630
    Abstract: The invention relates to a medical device for positioning bone elements, in particular vertebrae, relative to each other, comprising at least one assembly built up of two or more anchoring elements, which can each be implanted in a bone element with a first end thereof, as well as an elongated connecting element, which can be connected to the other ends of the anchoring elements projecting from the bone element in question. The object of the invention is to provide an improved medical device as referred to in the introduction, placement of which requires a simpler procedure and thus less drastic surgery, which is less burdening for the patient, therefore.
