Title (EN) EXPANDABLE DEVICE FOR PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SPINE
(FR) DISPOSITIF EXTENSIBLE PERMETTANT DE FORMER UN ACCES A LA COLONNE VERTEBRALE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for providing access to a surgical location adjacent to a spine of a patient is provided. The system includes a dilator (4000) and an access device (20). The dilator has a proximal portion (4008), a first elongate member (4020), a second elongate member (4024), and a movable member (4022, 4076) at least partially located between the first and second elongate members. The proximal portion is coupled with and is configured to move the movable member to move the dilator to an expanded configuration. The access device has a passage that extends therethrough. The passage is configured such that the access device can be advanced over the dilator when the dilator is in the expanded configuration.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système permettant de former un accès à un site chirurgical adjacent à la colonne vertébrale d'un patient. Ce système comprend un dilatateur et un dispositif d'accès. Le dilatateur comporte une partie proximale, un premier élément allongé, un second élément allongé, ainsi qu'un élément mobile disposé au moins en partie entre le premier et le second élément allongé. La partie proximale du dilatateur est couplée à l'élément mobile et conçue pour déplacer l'élément mobile pour que ce dernier déploie le dilatateur. Le dispositif d'accès comporte un passage traversant. Ce passage est conçu pour que le dispositif d'accès puisse être glissé sur le dilatateur lorsque ce dernier est déployé.
