Title: (EN) Expandable vertebral body replacement system and method
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

Vertebral body replacement apparatuses, systems, and methods are provided. In various examples, an implantable device is configured to be inserted between a first vertebral body and a second vertebral body. The implantable device includes a first endplate configured to contact a superior endplate of the first vertebral body. A central member is pivotably coupled to the first endplate. A second endplate is configured to contact an inferior endplate of the second vertebral body. The implantable device includes a first insertion configuration and a second load-bearing configuration. The first insertion configuration includes the central member at a first angular position with respect to the first endplate. The second load-bearing configuration includes the central member at a second angular position with respect to the first endplate and the second endplate in a load-bearing position.
