(FR) DISPOSITIFS, SYSTEMES ET METHODES D'ACCROISSEMENT DE DISQUES INTERVERTEBRAUX
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Devices, systems and methods are provided for augmenting intervertebral discs. The systems include implantable annulus repair and augmentation devices as well as implantable prosthetic materials for replacing a portion of or augmenting the annulus and/or the nucleus pulposus. The systems further include instruments for implanting the subject devices and materials in a minimally invasive manner. The methods are directed to the minimally invasive implantation of one or more of the subject annulus repair devices and the prosthetic materials to within the intervertebral disc.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs, des systèmes et des méthodes permettant d'accroître des disques intervertébraux. Ces systèmes comprennent des dispositifs implantables d'accroissement et de réparation d'anneau, ainsi que des matériaux prothétiques implantables destinés au remplacement d'une partie de l'anneau et/ou du nucleus pulposus ou à l'accroissement de ladite partie et/ou dudit nucleus pulposus. Lesdits systèmes présentent, également, des instruments d'implantation de ces dispositifs et matières d'une manière extrêmement peu effractive. Lesdits procédés visent une implantation extrêmement peu effractive d'au moins un des dispositifs de réparation d'anneau et des matériaux prothétiques au sein du disque intervertébral.
