Title (EN) MULTIPLE SPINDLE ADJUSTABLE INTERBODY FUSION DEVICES AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE FUSION INTERSOMATIQUE AJUSTABLES À BROCHES MULTIPLES ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) An interbody fusion device includes a base member, a top member, and an expansion mechanism for moving the top member relative to the base member. The expansion mechanism may include a connector drive rod assembly, a gear, a threaded rod, and a support means. The gear ring is coupled to the threaded rod and is rotatable. The expansion mechanism may also include at least one load head coupled to the threaded rod. An alternative interbody fusion device is also disclosed and includes a bottom member, a superior member, and an expansion mechanism for moving the superior member relative to the bottom member. The expansion mechanism includes a first expansion assembly for moving a first end of the superior member relative to the bottom member, a second expansion assembly for moving a second end of the superior member relative to the bottom member, and a connector drive rod assembly.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de fusion intersomatique comportant un élément de base, un élément supérieur et un mécanisme d'expansion destiné à déplacer l'élément supérieur par rapport à l'élément de base. Le mécanisme d'expansion peut comporter un ensemble de tige d'entraînement de connecteur, un engrenage, une tige filetée et un moyen de support. La couronne dentée est couplée à la tige filetée et est rotative. Le mécanisme d'expansion peut également comporter au moins une tête de charge couplée à la tige filetée. Un autre dispositif de fusion intersomatique est également décrit et comporte un élément de fond, un élément supérieur et un mécanisme d'expansion destiné à déplacer l'élément supérieur par rapport à l'élément de fond. Le mécanisme d'expansion comporte un premier assemblage d'expansion destiné à déplacer une première extrémité de l'élément supérieur par rapport à l'élément de fond, un deuxième assemblage d'expansion destiné à déplacer une deuxième extrémité de l'élément supérieur par rapport à l'élément de fond et un ensemble de tige d'entraînement de connecteur.
