Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR CONSTRAINT OF MULTIPLE SPINE SEGMENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR LIMITER DE MULTIPLES SEGMENTS SPINAUX
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods, apparatus and systems for constraining spinous processes to elastically limit flexion of two or more adjacent spinal segments rely on placing a tether structure over at least three adjacent vertebral bodies or two adjacent vertebral bodies and the sacrum. The tether structures may be continuous, for example in the form of a continuous loop, or may be discontinuous, for example in the form of a loop or elongate element having at least two anchor structures for securing in bone.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des procédés, sur un appareil et sur des systèmes pour limiter des apophyses épineuses pour limiter élastiquement la flexion de deux ou plusieurs segments de colonne vertébrale adjacents, lesquels procédés, appareil et systèmes reposent sur le placement d'une structure d'attache sur au moins trois corps vertébrés adjacents ou deux corps vertébrés adjacents et le sacrum. Les structures d'attache peuvent être continues, par exemple sous la forme d'une boucle continue, ou peuvent être discontinues, par exemple sous la forme d'une boucle ou d'un élément allongé ayant au moins deux structures d'ancrage pour la fixation dans l'os.
