(EN) METHODS FOR TREATING BONE AND OTHER TISSUE
(FR) PROCEDES, MATERIAUX ET APPAREIL DE TRAITEMENT DES OS ET D'AUTRES TISSUS
Abstract
(EN)
A method of treating a vertebra is disclosed that includes accessing an interior of a vertebra and introducing a sufficient amount of artificial biocompatible material, which does not set to a hardened condition in storage, into the vertebra with sufficient force to move the vertebra apart. The method is minimally invasive in that only a single channel is formed into the body. Optionally, the procedure is carried out via a cannula having a diameter of 6 mm or less.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de traitement d'une vertèbre, qui consiste: (a) à accéder à l'intérieur de la vertèbre; et (b) à introduire une quantité suffisante de matériau biocompatible artificiel qui ne durcit pas lorsqu'il est stocké, dans cet os, avec une force suffisante à déplacer les parties fracturées dudit os.
