Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR POSTERIOR DYNAMIC STABILIZATION OF THE SPINE
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE STABILISATION DYNAMIQUE POSTERIEURE DE LA COLONNE VERTEBRALE
Abstract:
(EN) Devices, systems and methods for dynamically stabilizing the spine are provided. The devices include an expandable spacer having an undeployed configuration and a deployed configuration, wherein the spacer has axial and radial dimensions for positioning between the spinous processes of adjacent vertebrae. The systems include one or more spacers and a mechanical actuation means for delivering and deploying the spacer. The methods involve the implantation of one or more spacers within the interspinous space.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des dispositifs, des systèmes et des procédés de stabilisation dynamique de la colonne vertébrale. Les dispositifs comprennent un espaceur extensible ayant une configuration non déployée et une configuration déployée, et présentant des dimensions axiales et radiales pour se positionner entre les apophyses épineuses des vertèbres adjacentes. Les systèmes comprennent un ou plusieurs espaceurs et un actionneur mécanique pour l'introduction et le déploiement de l'espaceur. Les procédés comprennent l'implantation d'un ou plusieurs espaceurs dans l'espace interépineux.
