Title (EN) SPONDYLOLISTHESIS REDUCTION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉDUCTION DE SPONDYLOLISTHÉSIS
Abstract:
(EN) A percutaneous spondylolisthesis reduction instrument and method are disclosed for minimally invasive surgery. The spondylolisthesis reduction instrument includes tangs threadingly connected to an upper knob at the proximal end and configured to connect with a tower construct at the distal end. When connected to a tower which is attached to a bone fastener assembly implanted in a vertebral body, rotation of the upper knob retracts the tangs and the connected tower construct and vertebral body to reduce spondylolisthesis.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument percutané de réduction de spondylolisthésis permettant de mettre en œuvre une intervention chirurgicale peu vulnérante. L'instrument de réduction de spondylolisthésis comprend des tenons reliés par filetage à un bouton supérieur à l'extrémité proximale, et conçus pour être reliés à une construction de tour à l'extrémité distale. Lorsque les tenons sont reliés à une tour qui est fixée à un ensemble de fixation d'os implanté dans un corps vertébral, la rotation du bouton supérieur permet de rétracter lesdits tenons ainsi que la construction de tour et le corps vertébral reliés afin de réduire le spondylolisthésis.
