Title
(EN) EXPANDABLE INTERBODY FUSION DEVICE WITH GRAFT CHAMBERS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FUSION INTERVERTÉBRAL EXTENSIBLE AYANT DES CHAMBRES DE GREFFE
Abstract
(EN)
An expandable interbody fusion device includes superior and inferior endplates that are configured to receive a sequentially inserted stack of expansion members or wafers in interlocking engagement. The expansion members are formed to each have a generally U- shaped rearward facing opening. The superior and inferior endplates have openings through their outer surfaces in at least partial alignment and communication with the rearward facing openings of the expansion members. The inferior endplate has a fully bounded cavity for telescoping receipt of the superior endplate. The inferior endplate also has a fully bounded channel extending through the rear endwall thereof in direct communication with the rearward facing opening of at least one expansion member for the receipt of bone graft material into the device to promote fusion between opposing vertebral bodies of the spine.

La présente invention se rapporte à un dispositif de fusion intervertébral extensible qui comprend des plaques d'extrémité supérieure et inférieure qui sont configurées pour recevoir un empilement de composants d'extension ou de plaques en prise de verrouillage mutuel introduits de manière séquentielle. Les éléments d'extension sont formés de sorte à présenter chacun une ouverture orientée vers l'arrière généralement en forme de U. Les plaques d'extrémité supérieure et inférieure comportent des ouvertures réalisées à travers leurs surfaces externes en alignement au moins partiel et en communication avec les ouvertures orientées vers l'arrière des éléments d'extension. La plaque d'extrémité inférieure comporte une cavité complètement délimitée pour permettre une réception télescopique de la plaque d'extrémité supérieure. La plaque d'extrémité inférieure comporte également un canal complètement délimité qui s'étend à travers la paroi d'extrémité arrière de cette dernière en communication directe avec l'ouverture orientée vers l'arrière d'au moins un élément d'extension pour permettre la réception d'un matériau de greffe osseuse dans le dispositif afin de favoriser la fusion entre des corps vertébraux opposés de la colonne vertébrale.
