Title (EN) AN INTERVERTEBRAL PROSTHESIS FOR SUPPORTING ADJACENT VERTEBRAL BODIES ENABLING THE CREATION OF SOFT FUSION AND METHOD
(FR) PROTHÈSE INTERVERTÉBRALE POUR SUPPORTER DES CORPS VERTÉBRAUX ADJACENTS PERMETTANT LA CRÉATION D’UNE FUSION MOLLE, ET MÉTHODE CORRESPONDANTE
Abstract:
(EN) An intervertebral prosthetic disc for replacing a damaged natural disc includes upper and lower vertebral body engaging surfaces, an exterior wall and one ore more generally vertically oriented bone channels of limited cross-sectional area to allow bone to form and fuse into continuous or discontinuous struts between the bodies. The stiffness of the disc, while supporting the bodies, allows the distance therebetween to narrow sufficiently when subjected to a predetermined load such as the patient standing, walking, etc., to transfer sufficient energy to the bone struts to create one or more nonunion joints or pseudoarthrosis at locations along the struts. The disc includes stops to limit the movement thereof to an amount sustainable by the disc without resulting in fatigue failure.
(FR) L’invention concerne un disque prosthétique intervertébral prévu pour remplacer un disque naturel endommagé comprenant des surfaces d’engagement supérieure et inférieure d’un corps vertébral, une paroi externe et un ou plusieurs canaux osseux orientés en général verticalement de section transversale limitée afin de permettre à l’os de se former et de fusionner en étais continus ou discontinus entre les corps. La raideur du disque, tout en supportant les corps, permet à la distance intercalaire de se rétrécir suffisamment lorsque le disque est soumis à une charge prédéterminée telle que lorsque le patient se tient debout, marche, entre autres, afin de transférer une énergie suffisante à l'étai osseux pour créer une ou plusieurs articulations sans union ou pseudarthrose à certains endroits le long des étais. Le disque inclut des arrêts afin de limiter son mouvement à une ampleur supportable par le disque sans provoquer de défaut dû à la fatigue.
