Abstract: front page image
(EN) A biologically implantable device including a spacer body and fasteners for fixing the spacer body in place between vertebrae, and a method for use of the device to improve intervertebral spacing and correct foraminal stenosis, and to immobilize facet joints and promote fusion of adjacent vertebrae to each other. A drill guide may be used in providing bores in the facet joints to receive the fasteners.
