Title (EN) CAGE FOR THE INTRODUCTION INTO AN INTERVERTEBRAL-DISC COMPARTMENT
(FR) CAGE DESTINEE A ETRE INTRODUITE DANS UN LOGEMENT POUR DISQUE INTERVERTEBRAL
Abstract:
(EN) A rigid cage (110) to be introduced into an intervertebral-disc compartment between two adjacent vertebrae is assembled from two constituent elements (110a, 110b) along a jointing face which extends parallel to transverse sides of the cage. According to another embodiment, operating means, for example a pair of rods (231, 233), may be fastened to a cage (210) in order to rotate the cage within the intervertebral-disc compartment. Both approaches make it possible to introduce the cage through an access canal having a very omall diameter.
(FR) Cette invention concerne une cage rigide (110) destinée à être introduite dans un logement de disque intervertébral entre deux vertèbres, qui est constituée de deux éléments constitutifs (110a, 110b) le long d'une face jointive orientée parallèlement aux côtés transversaux de la cage. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, on peut fixer une paire d'éléments actifs, tels qu'une paire de tiges (231, 233) à la cage (210) dans le but de la tourner dans le logement pour disque intervertébral. Dans les deux cas, il est possible d'introduire la cage par un canal d'accès de très faible diamètre.
