Title
(DE) GERÄT ZUR BEHANDLUNG VON KNOCHEN UND ANDEREM GEWEBE
(EN) APPARATUS FOR TREATING BONE AND OTHER TISSUE
(FR) APPAREIL DE TRAITEMENT DES OS ET D'AUTRES TISSUS
Abstract
(EN)
A method of treating a vertebra, comprising: (a) accessing an interior of a vertebra; and (b) introducing a sufficient amount of artificial biocompatible material which does not set to a hardened condition in storage, into said bone, with sufficient force to move apart fractured portions of said bone.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de traitement d'une vertèbre, qui consiste: (a) à accéder à l'intérieur de la vertèbre; et (b) à introduire une quantité suffisante de matériau biocompatible artificiel qui ne durcit pas lorsqu'il est stocké, dans cet os, avec une force suffisante à déplacer les parties fracturées dudit os.
