Title
(EN) DEVICES FOR DISC HERNIATION REPAIR AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) dispositifs de réparation de hernie discale et LEURS procédés d'utilisation
Abstract
(EN)
Devices and methods for fixing defects in the anulus fibrosus (vertebral disc) of a patient are described. The devices a mesh patch; first, second, third, and fourth sutures; and first, second, third, and fourth anchors. Each anchor has a first portion adapted for insertion into a bone and a second portion having an opening. The sutures are disposed through the openings of the anchors. The first portions of the first and second anchors are inserted into a cranial vertebra. The first portions of the third and fourth anchors are inserted into a caudal vertebra. The mesh patch is positioned adjacent the defect. An end of first suture can be attached to an end of the third suture. An end of the second suture can be attached to an end of the fourth suture. The other ends of each of the first, second, third, and fourth sutures can then be anchored.

L'invention concerne des dispositifs et procédés de réparation de défaut dans l'anneau fibreux (disque vertébral) d'un patient. Les dispositifs comprennent un patch à mailles ; une première, une seconde, une troisième et une quatrième sutures ; et un premier, un second, un troisième et un quatrième ancrages. Chaque ancrage possède une première partie adaptée pour être insérée dans un os et une seconde partie présentant une ouverture. Les sutures sont disposées à travers les ouvertures des ancrages. Les premières parties des premier et second ancrages sont introduites dans une vertèbre crânienne. Les premières parties des troisième et quatrième ancrages sont introduites dans une vertèbre caudale. Le patch de mailles est positionné à côté du défaut. Une extrémité de la première suture peut se fixer à une extrémité de la troisième suture. Une extrémité de la seconde suture peut se fixer à une extrémité de la quatrième suture. Les autres extrémités de la première, la seconde, la troisième et la quatrième sutures peuvent alors être ancrées.
