Title
(EN) REPLACEMENT FACET JOINT AND METHOD
(FR) PROTHÈSE DE FACETTE VERTÉBRALE ET MÉTHODE CORRESPONDANTE
Abstract
(EN)
Prostheses and methods for repair of cervical fact joints. In one aspect, the articulating surfaces of the natural facets of a facet joint are removed only a sufficient amount to allow the insertion of flat or slightly curvilinear portions of protheses therebetween in an overlapping relationship. The portions are so inserted and the prostheses mounted by attachment to adjacent vertebrae. Also, a single natural facet may be similarly repaired with a single prosthesis. In another aspect, the invention provides a single prosthesis that is useful in repairing articulating surfaces in more than one cervical facet joint.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des prothèses et des méthodes de réparation de facettes vertébrales cervicales. Selon un aspect, les surfaces d'articulation des facettes d'origine d'une facette vertébrale sont éliminées en quantité suffisante pour permettre d'insérer des parties plates ou légèrement curvilignes de prothèses entre ces dernières suivant une configuration avec chevauchement. Les parties sont insérées de cette manière et les prothèses sont installées par fixation aux vertèbres adjacentes. De cette manière, on peut également réparer une facette d'origine unique au moyen d'une prothèse unique. Selon un autre aspect, cette invention concerne une prothèse unique qui est utile pour réparer des surfaces d'articulation dans plus d'une facette vertébrale cervicale.
