Title (EN) DEVICE FOR PREPARING A SPACE BETWEEN ADJACENT VERTEBRAE TO RECEIVE AN INSERT
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PREPARATION D'UN ESPACE ENTRE DES VERTEBRES CONTIGUES DESTINE A LOGER UNE PIECE RAPPORTEE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is a device (10), and method for use in a human spine to prepare a space between adjacent vertebral bodies into the vertebral end plates to receive an implanting insert. The device (10) includes a handle (13), a shaft (12), and a mounting member (16) at one end of the shaft (12). An abrading element (18) is mounted on the mouting member (16) and is coupled to a drive mechanism (14). The drive mechanism (14) is operable to move the abrading element (18) in at least one degree of freedom to create surfaces having predetermined contours in the end plates of the adjacent vertebral bodies.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif (10) et un procédé destinés à s'utiliser dans une colonne vertébrale humaine pour préparer un espace entre des corps vertébraux contigus dans les plateaux vertébraux, l'espace étant destiné à loger une pièce rapportée d'implant. Le dispositif (10) comprend une poignée (13), une tige (12), et un élément de montage (16) à une extrémité de la tige (12). Un élément d'abrasion (18) est monté sur l'élément de montage (16) et est couplé à un mécanisme d'entraînement (14). Le mécanisme d'entraînement (14) peut être actionné pour déplacer l'élément d'abrasion (18) d'au moins un degré de liberté afin de créer des surfaces présentant des contours prédéterminés dans les plateaux vertébraux des corps vertébraux contigus.
