Title
(EN) ANTERIOR SPINAL INTERBODY FUSION DELIVERY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'ADMINISTRATION D'ARTHRODÈSE ANTÉRIEURE INTERSOMATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and apparatus are described for a surgical instrument and for methods of using a surgical instrument. A method includes providing a surgical instrument comprising a clear passageway, a first stationary finger, a first adjustable finger, and a first pull nut; inserting the first stationary finger and the first adjustable finger between two vertebrae; rotating the first pull nut with a hex drive, thereby separating the first adjustable finger from the first stationary finger and distracting the two vertebrae; removing a damaged disc from between the two vertebrae; and inserting an implant through the clear passageway and placing the implant between the two vertebrae. An apparatus includes a tray having a base, a first side wall, a second side wall, a distal end and a proximal end, and wherein the base, the first side wall, and the second side wall define a passageway; at least one first finger coupled to the distal end of the tray; at least one second finger coupled to the distal end of the tray; at least one pull nut coupled to the proximal end of the tray; and wherein rotation of the at least one pull nut adjusts a distance between the at least one first finger and the at least one second finger.

La présente invention concerne des procédés et un appareil pour un instrument chirurgical et des procédés d'utilisation d'un instrument chirurgical. Le procédé comprend les étapes consistant à fournir un instrument chirurgical comprenant un passage libre, un premier doigt fixe, un premier doigt réglable et un premier écrou de tirage ; à insérer le premier doigt fixe et le premier doigt réglable entre deux vertèbres ; à faire pivoter le premier écrou de tirage avec un hexagone conducteur, séparant ainsi le premier doigt réglable du premier doigt fixe et provoquant la distraction des deux vertèbres ; à éliminer un disque endommagé situé entre les deux vertèbres ; et à insérer un implant par le passage libre et à placer l'implant entre les deux vertèbres. L'appareil comprend un plateau ayant une base, une première paroi latérale, une seconde paroi latérale, une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale, la base, la première paroi latérale et la seconde paroi latérale définissant un passage ; au moins un premier doigt couplé à l'extrémité distale du plateau ; au moins un second doigt couplé à l'extrémité distale du plateau ; au moins un écrou de tirage couplé à l'extrémité proximale du plateau ; la rotation d'un ou plusieurs écrous de tirage ajustant une distance entre un ou plusieurs premiers doigts et un ou plusieurs seconds doigts.
