Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0006036A1] The invention relates to an implant for interconnecting two bone fragments which comprises a clasp (4). Said clasp has two limbs (7) which are connected to one another at their one end and which form an eyelet with an opening (8) in this area. A screw (6) which can be screwed in is inserted into one (3) of both bone fragments through said opening. The free ends of both limbs (7) are inserted into the medullary space of the other bone fragment (2) and are anchored there by spreading outward. In order to improve the anchorage of the clasp (4) on the bone fragment, an insert part (5) is provided between the clasp (4) and the head (9) of the screw (6). Said insert part comprises a recess that accommodates the clasp (4) and is provided with spikes (11) that penetrate into the bone fragment (3).
