Title: INTRABODY OSTEOTOMY IMPLANT AND METHODS OF USE
Abstract:
An intrabody implant disclosed and methods of use are disclosed. The implant has an inclined surface, forming a wedge shape having an acute angle adapted to be placed between at least 2 separated portions of a single bony structure (such as a vertebral body). In some embodiments, the implant may be used to support portions of a vertebral body that have been separated surgically as part of a pedicle subtraction osteotomy and to orient the portions at a more predictable lordotic angle.
