Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is directed to a sequential dilator for use in surgery and a method for using the sequential dilator. The sequential dilator may have a bullet-shaped dilator and a plurality of dilator tubes with a removable handle. The method may include inserting a guide wire through an incision into a patient's vertebra and subsequently inserting the bullet-shaped dilator and dilator tubes with tapered ends and of increasing size into the incision to increase the size of the incision. A kit including the components necessary for the method is also disclosed.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un dilatateur séquentiel utilisé en chirurgie ainsi qu'une méthode d'utilisation de ce dilatateur séquentiel. Le dilatateur séquentiel peut comprendre un dilatateur en forme de balle et une pluralité de tubes de dilatateur reliés à une poignée amovible. La méthode peut consister à insérer un fil-guide à travers une incision dans une vertèbre d'un patient, puis à insérer le dilatateur en forme de balle et les tubes de dilatateur à extrémités effilées dont la taille augmente dans l'incision en vue d'une augmentation de la taille de l'incision. L'invention concerne également une trousse comprenant les éléments nécessaires à la mise en oeuvre de cette méthode.
