Title (EN) ARTIFICIAL SPINAL DISC
(FR) DISQUE INTERVERTEBRAL ARTIFICIEL
Abstract:
(EN) An artificial disc prosthesis is provided. The prosthesis of the present invention enables spinal segment alignment by having a variable height across its surface. The variable height is achieved by an asymmetric artificial nucleus or by at least one variable height end plate.
(FR) L'invention concerne une prothèse de disque artificiel. La prothèse de la présente invention permet l'alignement de segments intervertébraux du fait qu'elle présente une hauteur variable sur toute sa surface. La hauteur variable est obtenue par l'utilisation d'un noyau artificiel asymétrique ou par celle d'au moins une plaque d'extrémité de hauteur variable.
