Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0143650A1] The inventive assembly comprises the femoral stem (2) and two instruments for positioning said stem (2). One of these instruments is used for processing the metaphysiary cortical bone in the area of the inner wall of the femur (1), according to a curve shape. The other instrument is used for processing the metaphysiary cortical bone in the areas of the front, rear and outer walls of the femur, according to two non-parallel directions which are offset in the inner-outer plane. This allows two bores to be made in the cortical bone with non-parallel axes, one of these being situated on the outer side of the femur. The femoral stem (2) has (i) an inner edge (46) whose curve corresponds exactly to the curve of the inner wall of the bone as processed with the first instrument (3) and (ii) two bulges (47) whose shape corresponds to that of the bores made in the bone using the second instrument (4), in the area of the metaphysiary part of said femur.
