Title (EN) SPINAL DISC ANNULUS RECONSTRUCTION METHOD AND SPINAL DISC ANNULUS STENT
(FR) PROCEDE DE RECONSTRUCTION DE L'ANNULUS DU DISQUE INTERVERTEBRAL ET STENT D'ANNULUS DE DISQUE INTERVERTEBRAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A surgical method of repair and reconstruction of the spinal disc wall (annulus) after surgical invasion or pathologic rupture, incorporating suture closure, or stent insertion and fixation, designed to reduce the failure rate of conventional surgical procedures on the spinal discs. The design of the spinal disc annulus stent allows ingrowth of normal cells of healing in an enhanced fashion strengthening the normal reparative process.
(FR)L'invention a pour objet un procédé de réparation et de reconstruction de l'annulus des disques intervertébraux après invasion chirurgicale ou rupture pathologique. Ce procédé consiste à refermer par suture ou insérer et fixer un stent. Il a pour but de réduire le taux de défaillance des procédures chirurgicales traditionnelles sur les disques intervertébraux. La conception du stent de l'annulus du disque intervertébral permet l'interposition de cellules normales de guérison de manière améliorée pour renforcer le processus de réparation normal.
