Title
(EN) VERTEBRAL DENERVATION IN CONJUNCTION WITH VERTEBRAL FUSION
(FR) DÉNERVATION VERTÉBRALE EN ASSOCIATION AVEC UNE FUSION DES VERTÈBRES
Abstract
(EN) Described herein are various implementations of systems and methods for treating back pain (e.g., chronic low back pain) caused by different (e.g., independent) sources of pain, such as pain originating or stemming from intervertebral discs, from vertebral endplates, and/or from intraosseous locations within one or more vertebral bodies. For example, methods for treating back pain (e.g., chronic low back pain) may involve both vertebral fusion (e.g., arthrodesis or spondylodesis to fuse adjacent vertebrae) and neuromodulation (for example, ablation of nerves within or surrounding one or more of the adjacent vertebrae). The neuromodulation may facilitate treatment of pain that is generated by insertion of fusion hardware.
(FR) Sont décrits ici divers modes de réalisation de systèmes et de méthodes de traitement de maux de dos (par exemple, des douleurs lombaires) provoqués par différentes sources de douleur (par exemple indépendantes), telles que la douleur provenant ou découlant de disques intervertébraux, de plateaux vertébraux et/ou d'emplacements intra-osseux au sein d'un ou plusieurs corps vertébraux. Par exemple, l'invention concerne des méthodes de traitement de maux de dos (par exemple, des douleurs lombaires) qui peuvent impliquer à la fois une fusion des vertèbres (par exemple, une arthrodèse ou une spondylodèse pour fusionner des vertèbres adjacentes) et une neuromodulation (par exemple, une ablation de nerfs au sein d'une ou plusieurs des vertèbres adjacentes, ou entourant celles-ci). La neuromodulation peut faciliter le traitement de la douleur qui est générée par l'insertion d'un matériel de fusion.
