Title (EN) INTERVERTEBRAL DISC PROSTHESIS
(FR) PROTHESE DE DISQUE INTERVERTEBRAL
Abstract:
(EN) A system for repairing an intervertebral disc by delivering and curing a biomaterial in situ within the disc. The system includes both a device, having an insertable balloon and related lumen, controls and adapters, as well as in in situ curable biomaterial (and related biomaterial delivery means). The system can allow the doctor to determine a suitable endpoint for biomaterial delivery, by controlling distraction and/or biomaterial delivery pressure, and in turn, to deliver a desired quantity of biomaterial to the balloon in order to achieve improved polymer cure and implant characteristics. Also provided is a related method for repairing an intervertebral disc by using such a system to deliver and cure the biomaterial in situ. The system can be used to implant a prosthetic total disc, or aprosthetic disc nucleus in a manner that leaves teh surrounding disc tissue substantially intact.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de consolidation d'un disque intervertébral consistant à introduire et à durcir un biomatériau in situ dans le disque. Ce système comprend un dispositif, pourvu d'un ballonnet insérable et d'un passage interne correspondant, des organes de commande et des adaptateurs, ainsi qu'un biomatériau durcissable in situ (avec un moyen d'introduction du biomatériau). Ce système permet au médecin de déterminer le point final approprié pour l'introduction du biomatériau, en contrôlant la distraction et/ou la pression d'introduction du biomatériau, puis, d'introduire la quantité souhaitée de biomatériau dans le ballonnet pour réaliser une polymérisation optimale et améliorer les caractéristiques d'implant. Par ailleurs, l'invention concerne une méthode améliorée de consolidation d'un disque intervertébral faisant intervenir ce système pour introduire le biomatériau et le durcir in situ. De plus, on peut utiliser ce système pour implanter un disque prothétique entier, ou un noyau de disque prothétique, d'une façon qui préserve les tissus entourant le disque.
