Title (EN) HEMI-LUMBAR INTERBODY SPINAL IMPLANT HAVING AN ASYMMETRICAL LEADING END AND METHOD FOR INSTALLATION THEREOF
(FR) IMPLANT SPINAL INTERSOMATIQUE HEMI-LOMBAIRE PRESENTANT UN AVANT ASYMETRIQUE, ET SON PROCEDE D'INSTALLATION
Abstract:
(EN) An interbody spinal implant (200) adapted for placement across an intervertebral space formed across the height of a disk space between two adjacent vertebral bodies (v) is disclosed. The implant (200) has an asymmetrical leading end (202) adapted to sit upon the more peripheral areas, such as the apophyseal rim and the apophyseal rim area, of the vertebral end plate region of the vertebral bodies (v) without protruding therefrom. The asymmetrical leading end (202) allows for the safe use of an implant of maximum length for the implantation space into which it is installed. The implant (200) can also include an asymmetric trailing end (204) adapted to sit upon the more peripheral areas of the vertebral end plate region of the vertebral bodies. The implant (200) can be made of bone, or a material other than bone suitable for the intended purpose.
(FR) L'invention concerne un implant spinal (200) intersomatique conçu pour être placé sur un espace intervertébral de la hauteur de l'espace discal situé entre deux corps vertébraux (v) adjacents. Cet implant (200) présente une extrémité antérieure asymétrique (202) conçue pour reposer sur les zones les plus excentriques, telles que le bord apophysaire et la zone de bord apophysaire de la région de plaque d'extrémité des corps vertébraux (v) sans faire saillie. L'extrémité avant (202) asymétrique permet d'utiliser, de manière sûre, un implant de longueur maximum installé dans un espace d'implantation. Ledit implant (200) peut également comprendre une extrémité postérieure (204) asymétrique conçue pour reposer sur les zones les plus excentriques de la région de plaque d'extrémité des corps vertébraux. L'implant (200) peut être constitué d'os, ou d'un matériau approprié autre que de l'os.
