Title (EN) PRODUCTS, SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DELIVERING MATERIAL TO BONE AND OTHER INTERNAL BODY PARTS
(FR) PRODUITS, SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES PERMETTANT D'ADMINISTRER UN MATERIAU A L'OS ET A D'AUTRES PARTIES INTERNES DU CORPS
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are products, systems, and methods for delivering a material to an internal body part such as bone. In one variation, the product comprises a segmented plunger having a plurality of segments (41, 42, 43), where the plurality of cylindrical segments are sized for urging a material through an access member to thereby deliver the material to predetermined location in a subject's body. The segmented plunger may be used with a catheter for delivering a bone filler (26) or a bone cement to a bone requiring repair.
(FR) L'invention concerne des produits, des systèmes et des procédés permettant d'administrer un matériau à une partie interne du corps, telle qu'un os. Dans une variante, le produit comprend un piston segmenté ayant une pluralité de segments (41, 42, 43), cette pluralité de segments cylindriques étant dimensionnée pour pousser un matériau à travers un élément d'accès afin d'administrer le matériau à un endroit prédéterminé du corps d'un sujet. Le piston segmenté peut être utilisé avec un cathéter afin d'administrer un agent de remplissage osseux (26) ou un ciment osseux à un os nécessitant une réparation.
