Title (EN) INTERVERTEBRAL IMPLANT
(FR) IMPLANT INTERVERTÉBRAL
Abstract:
(EN) An adjustable spinal fusion intervertebral implant (10) is provided that can comprise upper and lower body portions (14), (16) that can each have proximal and distal wedge surfaces (18). (20) and (70), (72) disposed at proximal and distal ends (22), (24) and (74), (76) thereof. A pin (30) disposed intermediate the upper and lower body portions (14), (16) can be actuated to cause proximal and distal protrusions (68), (80) to converge towards each other and contact the respective ones of the proximal and distal wedge surfaces (18), (20) and (70), (72) Such contact can thereby transfer the longitudinal movement of the proximal and distal protrusions (68), (80) against the proximal and distal wedge surfaces (18). (20) and (70), (72) to cause the separation of the upper and lower body portions (14), (16), thereby expanding the intervertebral implant (10).
(FR) L'invention concerne un implant intervertébral pour fusion vertébrale ajustable (10) qui peut comprendre des parties de corps supérieure et inférieure (14), (16) qui peuvent être chacune dotée de surfaces de cale proximales et distales (18), (20) et (70), (72) disposées à leurs extrémités proximales et distales (22), (24) et (74), (76). Une tige (30) disposée entre les parties de corps supérieure et inférieure (14), (16) peut être actionnée pour faire converger les protrusions proximale et distale (68), (80) l'une vers l'autre et mettre en contact les protrusions respectives des surfaces de cale proximales et distales (18), (20) et (70), (72). Ce contact peut ainsi transférer le mouvement longitudinal des protrusions proximale et distale (68), (80) sur les surfaces de cale proximales et distales (18), (20) et (70), (72) en provoquant la séparation des parties de corps supérieure et inférieure (14), (16), en élargissant ainsi l'implant intervertébral (10).
