Title
(EN) TRANSFORAMINAL HYBRID IMPLANT
(FR) IMPLANT HYBRIDE POUR INSERTION TRANSFORAMINALE
Abstract
(EN)
An implant (500) configured for placement through a transforaminal surgical approach made of at least two different materials. The implant may include materials with varying radiolucency and mechanical properties. Such a hybrid implant may offer controlled radiographic visibility and optimized structural properties for implant placement, including placement for use in spinal arthrodesis .
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un implant (500) agencé de façon à être placé par une technique chirurgicale transforaminale, constitué d'au moins deux matériaux différents. Cet implant peut comprendre des matériaux avec des propriétés de transparence aux rayonnements et mécaniques variables. Cet implant hybride peut offrir une visibilité radiographique commandée et des propriétés structurelles optimisées en vue du placement de cet implant, notamment d'un placement destiné à l'arthrodèse du rachis.
