Title (EN) ARTIFICIAL FACET JOINT AND A METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME
(FR) FACETTE VERTEBRALE LOMBAIRE ARTIFICIELLE ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION ASSOCIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An artificial facet (10) is implanted and attached to the spine (14). The artificial facet is an assembly of components that includes a rod formed of first and second curved sections (22, 24). First and second pedicle screws (26, 28) are connected to the first and second curved sections, respectively. The first curved section has a sliding engagement with the second curved section along a curved longitudinal axis to allow adjustment of the length of the rod along the curved longitudinal axis. Each of the first and second pedicle screws incorporates a polyaxial head (40) to enable lateral movement of each of the pedicle screws in a plane transverse to the curved longitudinal axis of the rod. The first and second pedicle screws are connected to the respective first and second curved sections with set screws (42) so that the position of the pedicle screws along the curved sections is adjustable.
(FR)L'invention concerne une facette artificielle (10) implantée et fixée à la colonne vertébrale (14). Ladite facette artificielle est un ensemble de composants qui comporte une tige formée d'une première et d'une seconde sections courbes (22, 24). Des premier et second vis pédonculaires (26, 28) sont reliées aux première et seconde sections courbes, respectivement. La première section courbe présente une prise coulissante avec la seconde section courbe le long d'un axe longitudinal courbe, ce qui permet d'ajuster la longueur de la tige par rapport à l'axe longitudinal courbe. Chacune des première et seconde vis pédonculaires comporte une tête polyaxiale (40) qui permet un mouvement latéral de chacune de ces vis dans un plan transversal de l'axe longitudinal courbe de la tige. Les première et seconde vis pédonculaires sont reliées aux première et seconde sections courbes correspondantes par des vis de fixation (42), ce qui permet de régler la position des vis pédonculaires le long des section courbes.
