Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUSES FOR VERTEBRAL BODY DISTRACTION AND FUSION EMPLOYING A COAXIAL SCREW GEAR SLEEVE MECHANISM
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREILS DE DISTRACTION ET DE FUSION DES CORPS VERTÉBRAUX UTILISANT UN MÉCANISME À MANCHON COAXIAL À ENGRENAGE HÉLICOÏDAL
Abstract:
(EN) Improved methods and apparatuses for vertebral body distraction and fusion in accordance with various embodiments of the present invention employ one or more coaxial screw gear sleeve mechanisms. In various embodiments, coaxial screw gear sleeve mechanisms include a post with a threaded exterior surface and a corresponding sleeve configured to surround the post, the corresponding sleeve having a threaded interior surface configured to interface with the threaded exterior surface of the post and a geared exterior surface. A drive mechanism can be configured to interface with the geared exterior surface of the sleeve, causing the device to distract.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des appareils améliorés de distraction et de fusion des corps vertébraux mettant en œuvre, selon divers modes de réalisation, un ou plusieurs mécanismes à manchon coaxial à engrenage hélicoïdal. Dans divers modes de réalisation, des mécanismes à manchon coaxial à engrenage hélicoïdal comprennent un montant présentant une surface extérieure filetée et un manchon jumelé conçu pour entourer le montant. Le manchon jumelé présente une surface intérieure filetée coopérant avec la surface extérieure filetée du montant et une surface extérieure d'engrenage. Un mécanisme d'entraînement peut être agencé pour coopérer avec la surface extérieure d'engrenage du manchon et provoquer la distraction du dispositif.
