Title (EN) SPINAL IMPLANT AND CUTTING TOOL PREPARATION ACCESSORY FOR MOUNTING THE IMPLANT
(FR) IMPLANT VERTEBRAL ET INSTRUMENT PREPARATOIRE SOUS FORME D'OUTIL COUPANT SERVANT A METTRE L'IMPLANT EN PLACE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention relates to a spinal implant (110) for promoting fusion of adjacent vertebrae and restoration of normal disc height. The spinal implant includes an upper and lower surface (120, 122) adapted to engage cancellous bone tissue in the vertebral bodies. The spinal implant also includes at least two opposing bearing surfaces (138, 140) adapted to bear against cortical bone tissue in the endplates of adjacent vertebrae. This invention also provides an instrumentation to prepare the intervertebral space to receive the spinal implant and techniques for treating patients in need of corrective spinal surgery.
(FR) L'invention concerne un implant vertébral (110) servant à optimiser la fusion de vertèbres contiguës et à récupérer la hauteur normale du disque intervertébral. Cet implant vertébral comprend une surface supérieure et une surface inférieure (120, 122) conçues pour venir en contact avec le tissu osseux spongieux des corps vertébraux. Cet implant vertébral comporte également au moins deux surfaces d'appui opposées (138, 140) conçues pour s'appuyer contre le tissu osseux cortical des plaques d'extrémité de vertèbres contiguës. L'invention concerne également un instrument servant à préparer l'espace intervertébral afin de mettre en place l'implant vertébral, ainsi que des techniques servant à traiter des patients nécessitant une chirurgie vertébrale correctrice.
