Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DISTRACTION OF THE SPINAL DISC SPACE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE DE DISTRACTION DE L'ESPACE INTERVERTEBRAL
Abstract:
(EN) An extractable device is used to insert a medicinal filling into a spinal disc. The device comprises a filling member and a flowable medicine. The filling member is made of a flexible and permeable wall and is provided with a holding portion and an injection port via which the flowable medicine is injected into the holding portion after the filling member is inserted into the spinal disc. The holding portion is provided with an opening which is releasably lashed by one end of one or more threads so as to make the opening leakproof. Upon completion of solidification of the flowable medicine in the holding portion of the filling member, other end of the thread is pulled to unlash the opening of the holding portion, thereby enabling the filling member to be extracted from the spinal disc so as to leave only the medicine in the spinal disc.
(FR) On utilise un dispositif récupérable pour insérer une matière de remplissage médicamenteuse dans un disque intervertébral. Le dispositif comprend un élément de remplissage et un médicament fluide. L'élément de remplissage est constitué d'une paroi souple et perméable et comporte une partie de support et un point d'injection par lequel le médicament fluide est injecté dans la partie de support après l'insertion de l'élément de remplissage dans le disque intervertébral. La partie de support est pourvue d'une ouverture qui est ligaturée de manière libérable par une extrémité d'au moins un fil pour rendre étanche ladite ouverture. Lorsque le médicament fluide s'est complètement solidifié dans la partie de support de l'élément de remplissage, l'autre extrémité du fil est sollicitée pour délier l'ouverture de la partie de support, ce qui permet ainsi à l'élément de remplissage d'être extrait du disque intervertébral de manière à ce qu'il ne reste dans ce dernier que le médicament.
