Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR POSTERIOR STABILIZATION
(FR) METHODES ET DISPOSITIFS DE STABILISATION POSTERIEURE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various methods and devices for replacing damaged, injured, diseased, or otherwise unhealthy posterior elements, such as the facet joints, the lamina, the posterior ligaments, and/or other features of a patient's spinal column, are provided. In certain exemplary embodiments, a four bar linkage mechanism can be used to construct spinal stabilization devices and methods for restoring function to adjacent vertebrae. In particular, spinal stabilization devices can be provided that kinematically form a four-bar linkage mechanism with adjacent vertebrae and a disc or other element disposed between the adjacent vertebrae.
(FR)L'invention porte sur différentes méthodes et dispositifs de remplacement d'élaboration postérieurs endommagés, lésés, malades ou morbides tels que les articulations à facettes, les lames vertébrales, les ligaments postérieurs et autres éléments de la colonne vertébrale d'un patient. Certaines exécutions portent sur un mécanisme de liaison à quatre tringles pouvant servir à réaliser des dispositifs spinaux de stabilisation, et sur des méthode de restauration des fonctions des vertèbres contiguës. En particulier les dispositifs spinaux de stabilisation peuvent former cinématiquement avec les vertèbres contiguës et un disque ou un autre élément placé entre les vertèbres contiguës, un mécanisme de liaison à quatre tringles.
