Title (EN) EXPANDABLE SUPPORT DEVICE AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SUPPORT DILATABLE ET SA METHODE D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) An expandable support device for tissue repair is disclosed. The device can be used to repair hard or soft tissue, such as bone or vertebral discs. The device can have multiple flat sides that remain flat during expansion. A method of repairing tissue is also disclosed. Devices and methods for adjusting (e.g., removing, repositioning, resizing) deployed orthopedic expandable support devices are also disclosed. The expandable support devices can be engaged by an engagement device. The engagement device can longitudinally expand the expandable support device. The expandable support device can be longitudinally expanded until the expandable support device is substantially in a pre-deployed configuration. The expandable support device can be then be physically translated and/or rotated.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de support dilatable destiné à une réparation tissulaire. Ce dispositif peut être utilisé pour réparer du tissu dur ou du tissu mou, notamment de l'os ou des disques vertébraux. Ce dispositif peut présenter plusieurs côtés plats qui restent plats pendant leur dilatation. L'invention concerne également une méthode de réparation tissulaire. L'invention concerne encore des dispositifs et des méthodes pour ajuster (par exemple, retirer, repositionner, redimensionner) des dispositifs de support dilatables orthopédiques déployés. Ces dispositifs de support dilatables peuvent être emboîtés par un dispositif d'emboîtement. Le dispositif d'emboîtement peut effectuer la dilatation longitudinale du dispositif de support dilatable. Ce dispositif de support dilatable peut être longitudinalement dilaté jusqu'à ce que le dispositif de support dilatable prenne une configuration sensiblement prédéployée. Ce dispositif de support dilatable peut ensuite subir une translation et/ou une rotation physique.
