Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE NUCLEAR PROSTHESIS
(FR) PROTHÈSE NUCLÉAIRE IMPLANTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A nuclear disc implant includes an inner fillable enclosure and an outer fillable enclosure. After insertion into a enucleated disc cavity, the inner enclosure is filled with a fluid and the outer fillable enclosure is filled with a curable material. The curable material is allowed to cure and the fluid is removed from the inner enclosure to leave an inner enclosure surrounded by an cured outer enclosure. A reinforcing band may be provided around the nuclear disc implant. An inflation tool to fill the nuclear disc implant is provided.
(FR) Un implant de disque nucléaire comprend une enceinte remplissable interne et une enceinte remplissable externe. Après insertion dans une cavité de disque énucléé, l’enceinte interne est remplie d’un fluide et l’enceinte externe est remplie d’un matériau durcissable. Le matériau durcissable peut durcir et le fluide est retiré de l’enceinte interne pour laisser une enceinte interne entourée par une enceinte externe durcie. Une bande de renforcement peut être disposée autour de l’implant de disque nucléaire. L’invention concerne en outre un outil de gonflage pour remplir l’implant de disque nucléaire.
