Title: Ring for an angulation osteosynthesis device and osteosynthesis device incorporating same

Abstract: An osteosynthesis device, in particular for the spine. The device has an outer spherical surface and a substantially cylindrical inner surface, designed to receive a rod of the device. A ring has two matching parts (10) each being U-shaped and having a bottom and a pair of branches taking up a fraction of the axial dimension of the bottom. The distance between the branches is about the same as that of the rod diameter, their respective bottoms facing each other enclosing the rod, and their pairs of branches adjacent. The parts jointly define the outer and inner surfaces. The invention is applicable to linkages adjustable at different angles.
