Title
(EN) MOLD ASSEMBLY FOR INTERVERTEBRAL PROSTHESIS
(FR) ENSEMBLE MOULE DESTINÉ À UNE PROTHÈSE INTERVERTÉBRALE
Abstract
(EN)
A mold assembly for the in situ formation of a prosthesis inside an annulus located in an intervertebral disc space between adjacent vertebrae of a patient. The mold assembly includes at least a first mold (54) having at least one interior cavity adapted to be located in the intervertebral disc space. At least a first lumen (52) has a distal end fluidly coupled to the mold at a first location. One or more discrete reinforcing structures are located in the intervertebral disc space with the mold. One or more biomaterials (70) are provided to be delivered to the interior cavity through the first lumen. The at least partially cured biomaterial, the reinforcing structures and the mold cooperating to form the prosthesis.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble moule destiné à la formation in situ d'une prothèse dans un anneau situé dans un espace de disque intervertébral entre des vertèbres adjacentes d'un patient. L'ensemble moule comprend au moins un premier moule possédant au moins une cavité interne conçue de manière à se situer dans l'espace de disque intervertébral. Au moins une première lumière comporte une extrémité distale couplée fluidique au moule au niveau d'un premier emplacement. Une ou plusieurs structures discrètes de renforcement sont situées dans l'espace de disque intervertébral avec le moule. Un ou plusieurs biomatériaux sont fournis en vue d'être délivrés dans la cavité interne à travers la première lumière. Ce(s) biomatériau(x) partiellement durci(s), les structures de renforcement et le moule coopérant de manière à former la prothèse.
