(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE DE REPARATION DE TISSUS FIBREUX
Abstract:
(EN) Devices for repairing fibrous biological tissue are disclosed. The devices include an expandable clip, such as for repairing vertebral annuli. The devices include expandable members, where the members have a first end and a second end. The first end and second end can be forced towards each other, resulting in an expansion of the device. These devices can be deployed inside of fissures in vertebral annuli.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs de réparation de tissus biologiques fibreux. Lesdits dispositifs comprennent une agrafe extensible, tel que pour la réparation d'un anneau vertébral. Lesdits dispositifs comprennent des éléments extensibles, les éléments présentant une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. La première extrémité et la seconde extrémité peuvent être forcées l'une vers l'autre, entraînant une extension du dispositif. Lesdits dispositifs peuvent être déployés à l'intérieur de fissures au niveau d'un anneau vertébral.
