Title (EN) CONNECTORS FOR USE IN SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR REDUCING THE RISK OF PROXIMAL JUNCTIONAL KYPHOSIS
(FR) RACCORDS DESTINÉS À ÊTRE UTILISÉS DANS DES SYSTÈMES ET DES MÉTHODES DE RÉDUCTION DE RISQUE DE CYPHOSE JONCTIONNELLE PROXIMALE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for reducing the risk of PJK, PJF, and other conditions are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a longitudinal extension can be added to a primary fixation construct to extend the construct to one or more additional vertebral levels. The extension can be attached to a first attachment point, such as a spinous process of a vertebra that is superior to the primary construct. The extension can also be attached to a second attachment point, such as a component of the primary construct or an anatomical structure disposed inferior to the first attachment point. The extension can be more flexible than the primary construct and/or can limit motion to a lesser degree than the primary construct, thereby providing a more-gradual transition from the instrumented vertebrae to the natural patient anatomy adjacent thereto. The extension can be placed with little or no soft tissue disruption.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des méthodes de réduction du risque de PJK, de PJF et d'autres états. Dans certains modes de réalisation, une extension longitudinale peut être ajoutée à une construction de fixation primaire pour étendre la construction à un ou plusieurs niveaux vertébraux supplémentaires. L'extension peut être fixée à un premier point de fixation, tel qu'une apophyse épineuse d'une vertèbre qui est supérieure à la construction primaire. L'extension peut également être fixée à un second point de fixation, tel qu'un élément de la construction primaire ou une structure anatomique disposée sous le premier point de fixation. L'extension peut être plus flexible que la construction primaire et/ou peut limiter le mouvement à un degré inférieur à celui de la construction primaire, fournissant ainsi une transition plus progressive des vertèbres instrumentées à l'anatomie naturelle du patient adjacente à celles-ci. L'extension peut être placée avec peu ou pas de rupture de tissu mou.
