Title (EN) EXPANDABLE AND ANGULARLY ADJUSTABLE INTERVERTEBRAL CAGES WITH ARTICULATING JOINT
(FR) CAGES INTERVERTÉBRALES À EXPANSION ET RÉGLAGE ANGULAIRE COMPRENANT UN JOINT ARTICULÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The embodiments provide various interbody fusion spacers, or cages, for insertion between adjacent vertebrae. The cages may contain an articulating joint to allow expansion and angular adjustment, and enable upper and lower plate components to move relative to one another. The cages may have a first, insertion configuration characterized by a reduced size at each of their insertion ends to facilitate insertion through a narrow access passage and into the intervertebral space. In their second, expanded configuration, the cages are able to maintain the proper disc height and stabilize the spine by restoring sagittal balance and alignment. The intervertebral cages are able to adjust the angle of lordosis, and can accommodate larger lodortic angles in their second, expanded configuration. Further, these cages may promote fusion to further enhance spine stability by immobilizing the adjacent vertebral bodies.
(FR) Les modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent divers éléments d'espacement de fusion intervertébrale, ou cages, destinés à être insérés entre des vertèbres adjacentes. Les cages peuvent contenir un joint articulé pour permettre l'expansion et le réglage angulaire, et permettre aux composants de plaque supérieure et inférieure de se déplacer l'un par rapport à l'autre. Les cages peuvent présenter une première configuration d'insertion caractérisée par une taille réduite à chacune de leurs extrémités d'insertion pour faciliter l'insertion à travers un passage d'accès étroit et dans l'espace intervertébral. Dans leur seconde configuration déployée, les cages sont capables de maintenir la hauteur correcte du disque et de stabiliser la colonne vertébrale en rétablissant l'équilibre sagittal et l'alignement sagittal. Les cages intervertébrales peuvent ajuster l'angle de lordose, et peuvent s'adapter à des angles lordotiques plus grands dans leur seconde configuration déployée. En outre, ces cages peuvent favoriser la fusion afin d'améliorer davantage la stabilité de la colonne vertébrale par immobilisation des corps vertébraux adjacents.
