Title (EN) FLEXIBLE DAMPENING INTERVERTEBRAL SPACER DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ÉCARTEUR AMORTISSEUR INTERVERTÉBRAL SOUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) A flexible dampening intervertebral spacer (100) to replace a spinal disc comprising upper and lower plates (101,103), an articulation element (102) and optional intermediate members (804,805). The articulation element has a plurality of interposed, concentric ring shaped segments (202) separated by one or more spaces (201) and one or more bridging elements (203) connecting the interposed segments. A first portion of the articulation element, preferably an innermost segment, is preferably fixedly connected to the upper plate while a second portion of the articulation element, preferably the outermost segment, is preferably connected to the lower plate to permit relative movement of the endplates by elastic deflection or flexing of the articulation element without opposed surfaces rubbing against each other.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un écarteur amortisseur intervertébral souple (100) conçu pour remplacer un disque intervertébral et comprenant un plateau inférieur (103) et un plateau supérieur (101), un élément d'articulation (102), et des éléments intermédiaires facultatifs (804, 805). L'élément d'articulation comporte une pluralité de segments annulaires concentriques (202) séparés par un ou plusieurs espaces (201) et un ou plusieurs éléments de liaison (203) reliant les segments intercalés. Une première partie de l'élément d'articulation, de préférence un segment le plus à l'intérieur, est de préférence reliée de façon fixe au plateau supérieur alors qu'une seconde partie de l'élément d'articulation, de préférence le segment le plus à l'extérieur, est de préférence reliée au plateau inférieur de façon à permettre un mouvement relatif des plateaux d'extrémités par déflexion ou flexion élastique de l'élément d'articulation, sans que les surfaces opposées ne frottent l'une contre l'autre.
