The cavity has an arrowhead cross-section, corresponding to the shape of the apophysis, and passages in the sides for a support (20) linking a number of vertebrae and limiting intervertebral flexure. The support can be supple or rigid, and the ring can have lugs for pedicle fixing screws.

Description

IMPLANT CIIIRURGICAL DE STABILISATION DE IMPLANT FOR STABILIZING CIIIRURGICAL
L'ESPACE INTERVERTEBRAL INTERVERTEBRAL SPACE
La présente invention concerne un implant chirurgical de stabilisation de l'espace intervertébral. The present invention relates to a surgical implant for stabilizing the intervertebral space. Elle concerne également une prothèse chirurgicale intervertébrale constituée d'une pluralité d'implants chirurgicaux selon l'invention. It also relates to an intervertebral consisting surgical prosthesis of a plurality of surgical implants according to the invention.

L'invention trouve une application avantageuse en chirurgie orthopédique, notamment lors d'affections du rachis, telles que les canaux lombaires étroits, les lyses isthmiques ou les hernies discales. The invention finds an advantageous application in orthopedic surgery, in particular during disorders of the spine, such as narrow lumbar canals, Isthmian lysis or herniated discs.

On connaît de l'état de la technique divers dispositifs chirurgicaux destinés à limiter le mouvement relatif des vertèbres de manière à stabiliser l'espace intervertébral dans le cas d'affections extrêmement douloureuses de la colonne vertébrale, dont la plus fréquente, la sciatique, est due à l'écrasement des nerfs rachidiens passant entre les vertèbres sous l'effet du contact mutuel dur de ces dernières au cours des mouvements de flexion ou d'extension. various surgical devices are known from the prior art for limiting the relative movement of the vertebrae to stabilize the intervertebral space in the case of extremely painful affections of the spinal column, the most frequent, sciatica, is due to crushing of the spinal nerves passing between the vertebrae as a result of hard mutual contact of the latter during flexion or extension.

Parmi ces dispositifs connus, on peut citer des plaques ou tiges métalliques vissées qui maintiennent en permanence un écart suffisant entre les vertèbres. These known devices include plates or metal rods screwed which continuously maintain a sufficient gap between the vertebrae. Toutefois, ce type de prothèses n'autorise plus les mouvements relatifs des vertèbres concernées, ce qui occasionne une gêne pénible pour les patients. However, this type of prosthesis no longer allows the relative movements of the affected vertebrae, causing a painful discomfort for patients. De plus, l'utilisation de vis de fixation provoque des dégâts osseux très pénalisants. In addition, the fixing screws use causes very punitive bone damage. Enfin, ces systèmes ne donnent pas satisfaction pour le contrôle et la stabilisation de la rotation vertébrale sagitalle et frontale Finally, these systems are not satisfactory for the control and stabilization of the vertebral rotation sagittal and frontal
D'autres dispositifs préconisent l'emploi d'un ligament souple entrelacé autour des apophyses épineuses pour réduire le débattement des vertèbres en flexion, avec intelposition de moyens de calage entre les apophyses, destinés à limiter le mouvement de rapprochement des vertèbres lors d'une extension du rachis, là où le problème de l'écrasement des nerfs rachidiens est prédominant. Other devices recommend the use of an interlaced flexible ligament around the spinous processes to reduce the deflection of the vertebrae in flexion, with intelposition of wedging means between the processes, intended to limit the vertebrae approach movement during a extension of the spine, where the crash problem of spinal nerves is predominant.

Ces derniers dispositifs présentent, par rapport aux systèmes de plaques vissées, l'avantage d'une certaine souplesse, mais n'apportent aucune réponse à la question du contrôle et de la limitation de mouvement en rotation. These devices have, compared to bone plates systems, the advantage of flexibility, but provide no answer to the question of control and limitation of rotational movement.

Aussi, le problème technique à résoudre par l'objet de la présente invention est de proposer un implant chirurgical de stabilisation de l'espace intervertébral, qui permettrait, tout en préservant l'anatomie, de limiter le débattement des vertèbres lors des mouvements de flexion-extension, et à en contrôler la stabilité rotatoire sagittale et frontale. Thus the technical problem to be solved by the object of the present invention to provide a surgical implant for stabilization of the intervertebral space, which would allow, while maintaining the anatomy, limiting the travel of the vertebrae during flexion -extension, and monitor the sagittal and frontal rotational stability.

La solution au problème technique posé consiste, selon la présente invention, en ce que ledit implant comprend une bague munie d'une cavité d'insertion d'une apophyse épineuse, destinée à limiter les mouvements d'extension intervertébrale. The solution to the technical problem according to the present invention, in that said implant comprises a ring provided with an insertion cavity of a spinous process, for limiting the extension of intervertebral movements.

Ainsi, dans une prothèse chirurgicale intervertébrale constituée d'une pluralité d'implants conformes à l'invention disposés sur des apophyses épineuses consécutives, les bagues forment en quelque sorte butée les unes contre les autres lors d'une extension du rachis, ce qui réduit leur débattement et le risque d'écrasement des nerfs rachidiens au cours de ce mouvement. Thus, in a surgical intervertebral prosthesis consisting of a plurality of implants according to the invention arranged on consecutive spinous processes, the rings form somehow abutment against each other upon extension of the spine, thereby reducing their movement and the risk of crushing the spinal nerves during this movement.

L'invention prévoit également que ladite bague comporte des moyens de passage latéraux d'un organe de maintien d'une pluralité d'implants, destiné à limiter les mouvements de flexion intervertébrale. The invention also provides that said ring comprises lateral passage means of a holding member of a plurality of implants, for limiting the movements of flexion intervertebral.

Enfin, selon une caractéristique avantageuse de l'invention, ladite bague comporte des moyens de passage longitudinaux d'au moins un organe de rigidification d'une pluralité d'implants, destiné à limiter les mouvements de rotation intervertébrale sagitalle et frontale. Finally, according to an advantageous characteristic of the invention, said ring comprises longitudinal passage means of at least one stiffening element of a plurality of implants, for limiting the rotary movements intervertebral sagittal and frontal.

La description qui va suivre en regard des dessins annexés, donnés à titre d'exemples non limitatifs, fera bien comprendre en quoi consiste l'invention et comment elle peut être réalisée.

La figure 15 est une vue de dessus d'une vertèbre d'un implant chirurgical portant des oreilles latérales de guidage. Figure 15 is a top view of a vertebra of a surgical implant on lateral guide ears.

Les figures 1 et 2 montrent respectivement en perspective deux implants 10, 10' chirurgicaux de stabilisation de l'espace intervertébral comprenant, chacun, une bague 11, 11' munie d'une cavité 12, 12' d'insertion d'une apophyse épineuse, ladite bague étant destinée à limiter les mouvements d'extension intervertébrale. Figures 1 and 2 show perspective views of two implants 10, 10 'surgical stabilization of the intervertebral space each comprising a ring 11, 11' provided with a recess 12, 12 'for inserting a spinous process , said ring being intended to limit the movements of extension intervertebral.

Les figures 3 et 4 illustrent la façon dont les bagues 1 la, 1 lb d'implants 10a, 10b sont engagées sur des apophyses épineuses la, lb. Figures 3 and 4 illustrate how the rings 1 of the, 1 lb implants 10a, 10b are engaged on the spinous processes, lb.

Naturellement, les dimensions et les formes des bagues et des cavités sont déterminées en fonction de la taille des vertèbres du tronçon rachidien à stabiliser, de façon à obtenir un maintien suffisant des implants sur les apophyses et le contact nécessaire entre deux bagues consécutives pour garantir la limitation recherchée des mouvements d'extension intervertébrale qui tendent à rapprocher les apophyses épineuses. Naturally, the dimensions and shapes of rings and cavities are determined according to the size of the section of the vertebrae spinal stabilization, so as to obtain a sufficient retention of the implants on the processes and the necessary contact between two consecutive rings to ensure sought limitation of intervertebral extension movements that tend to bring the spinous processes.

Comme on peut le voir sur les figures 3, 5 et 6, ledit contact entre deux bagues consécutives est réalisé par l'intermédiaire d'extrémités concaves ou convexes, telles que 131, 132 et 131', 132' sur les figures 1 et 2, aménagées sur les implants, étant entendu que les extrémités en contact de deux bagues consécutives présentent des profils conjugués concave/convexe. As can be seen in Figures 3, 5 and 6, said contact between two consecutive rings is conducted via concave or convex ends, such as 131, 132 and 131 ', 132' in Figures 1 and 2 , arranged on implants, it being understood that the abutting ends of two consecutive rings have conjugated concave / convex profiles.

On obtient ainsi, par emboîtement des bagues, une bonne cohérence mécanique de la prothèse chirurgicale intervertébrale lorsque celle-ci est constituée d'une pluralité d'implants montés sur plusieurs apophyses épineuses successives. Is thus obtained, by interlocking rings, good mechanical consistency of the surgical intervertebral prosthesis when the latter consists of a plurality of implants mounted on several successive spinous processes.

Conformément aux figures 1 et 2 en particulier, il est prévu que les bagues 11, 11' comportent une ouverture latérale 14, 14' permettant d'engager l'apophyse épineuse dans la cavité 12, 12' par insertion latérale entraînant une déformation élastique des bagues 11,11'. According to Figures 1 and 2 in particular, it is provided that the rings 11, 11 'comprise a lateral opening 14, 14' for engaging the spinous process in the cavity 12, 12 'by lateral insertion resulting in elastic deformation of rings 11,11. Cette disposition permet une mise en place latérale de l'implant 10, 10' sur le rachis, en épargnant le ligament jaune qui se trouve ainsi préservé. This provision allows a lateral placement of the implant 10, 10 'on the spine, sparing the yellow ligament which is thus preserved.

Comme le montre l'ensemble des figures, les bagues globalement référencées 11, comportent des moyens de passage latéraux d'un organe de maintien d'une pluralité d'implants, destiné à limiter les mouvements de flexion intervertébrale qui tendent à écarter les apophyses épineuses. As shown throughout the figures, globally referenced rings 11 have lateral passage means of a holding member of a plurality of implants, for limiting the movements of flexion intervertebral which tend to separate the spinous processes .

Sur les figures 1 à 6, et 9 et 10, lesdits moyens de passage latéraux sont des passants latéraux, globalement référencés 15, disposés sur les flancs longitudinaux des bagues 11. Ces passants latéraux 15 sont destinés à recevoir un organe de maintien formé d'un ligament souple 20 artificiel ceinturant l'ensemble des implants constituant la prothèse chirurgicale intervertébrale. In Figures 1 to 6 and 9 and 10, said side passage means are lateral loops, generally referenced 15, arranged on the longitudinal sides of the rings 11. These lateral loops 15 for receiving a holding member formed of a flexible artificial ligament 20 surrounding all implants constituting the surgical intervertebral prosthesis.

Le ligament souple 20, fabriqué en Dacron (marque déposé) ou en fibres de polyéthylène par exemple, est tendu de manière à assurer la cohésion de la prothèse et à obtenir la résistance voulue aux mouvements de flexion intervertébrale. The flexible ligament 20, made of Dacron (registered trademark) or polyethylene fibers for example, is tensioned so as to ensure the cohesion of the prosthesis and to obtain the desired resistance to bending movements intervertebral. Ledit ligament 20 est refermé sur lui-même par piqûres en points de croix ou en U, ou tout autre moyen de fixation tel que boucle de ceinture. Said ligament 20 is closed on itself pitting in cross stitches or U-shaped, or any other attachment means such as belt buckle.

Les figures 7 et 8 montrent deux variantes de réalisation desdits moyens de passage latéraux. Figures 7 and 8 show two alternative embodiments of said side passage means. Il s'agit de fentes latérales 15' (figure 2), ou de fentes latérales 15" ouvertes latéralement (figure 8) à travers lesquelles le ligament souple de maintien formant ceinture est introduit. These side slots 15 '(Figure 2) or side slits 15 "laterally open (figure 8) through which the flexible ligament belt forming maintenance is introduced.

Comme l'indique la figure 6, des organes de rigidification d'une pluralité d'implants 10a, 10b sont prévues pour limiter les mouvements de rotation intervertébrale sagitalle et frontale. As shown in Figure 6, stiffening bodies of a plurality of implants 10a, 10b are provided to limit the rotary movements intervertebral sagittal and frontal. Ces organes de rigidification sont, par exemple, des lames 16 plus ou moins résistantes en polyéthylène, cobalt-chrome, titane, etc. These stiffening members are, for example, blades 16 more or less resistant polyethylene, cobalt-chromium, titanium, etc.

D'une manière générale, lesdits organes de rigidification sont engagés dans des moyens de passage longitudinaux qui, dans le cas de la figure 6, peuvent être les passants latéraux 15 eux-memes. Generally, said stiffening members are engaged in the longitudinal passage means which, in the case of Figure 6, may be the side 15 themselves passersby. Selon la première variante de la figure 9, lesdits moyens de passage longitudinaux sont des trous traversants 16', aptes à recevoir des tiges de rigidification, non représentées. In the first variant of Figure 9, said longitudinal passage means are through holes 16 ', adapted to receive stiffening rods, not shown.

La deuxième variante de la figure 10 prévoit des fentes longitudinales 16" dans lesquelles sont insérées des lames de rigidification, non représentées. The second variant of Figure 10 includes longitudinal slots 16 "in which are inserted stiffening strip, not shown.

D'autre part, la figure 11 montre un implant 10 dont la bague 11 comporte deux oreilles latérales 17 portant chacune un trou 18 destiné à fixer ledit implant par vissage dans les pédicules vertébraux. On the other hand, Figure 11 shows an implant 10, the ring 11 comprises two lateral lugs 17 each carrying a hole 18 for fixing said implant by screwing into the vertebral pedicles.

Sur la figure 12 est représenté en perspective un autre exemple de réalisation d'un implant chirurgical 10" conforme à l'invention. Selon cet exemple, ladite bague 11" comporte une ouverture longitudinale 14" permettant l'engagement par insertion longitudinale d'une apophyse épineuse dans la cavité 12". In Figure 12 is shown in perspective another embodiment of a surgical implant 10 "in accordance with the invention. In this example, said ring 11" has a longitudinal opening 14 "for engagement by longitudinal insertion of a spinous process in the cavity 12 ".

On peut voir de manière plus précise sur la figure 12 une forme de cavité 12" particulière dont la section présente un profil en pointe de flèche, adaptée à la section correspondante de ladite apophyse épineuse. It can be seen in more detail in Figure 12 a particular form of 12 "cavity whose cross-section has a profile arrowhead adapted to the corresponding section of said spinous process.

Bien entendu, cet exemple de cavité n'est pas exclusif puisque, comme le montre la figure 13, elle peut également affecter une simple forme rectangulaire. Of course, this example cavity is not exclusive since, as shown in Figure 13, it can also affect a simple rectangular shape.

La prothèse chirurgicale intervertébrale de la figure 13 comprend une pluralité d'implants 10" à cavité rectangulaire, deux bagues 11" consécutives étant séparées par une entretoise 30 formant cale d'épaisseur. Surgical intervertebral prosthesis of Figure 13 includes a plurality of implants 10 "rectangular cavity, two rings 11" a row being separated by a spacer 30 forming a shim. Ladite prothèse est terminée par des éléments 31 d'extrémité contre lesquels le ligament souple 20 vient en appui. Said prosthesis 31 is completed by end elements against which the flexible ligament 20 rests.

L'avantage de la prothèse de la figure 13 est de rendre la dimension des bagues 11" indépendante de l'espace intervertébral lui-même. I1 suffit donc de disposer d'un seul jeu d'implants 10" identiques, quel que soit le patient et le type des vertèbres concernées, la compensation étant effectuée à l'aide des entretoises 30 qui poulTont, par exemple, avoir trois tailles standard. The advantage of the prosthesis 13 is to make the size of the rings 11 "independent of the intervertebral space itself. So I1 need is one set of 10 implants" identical, whatever the patient and the type of vertebrae concerned, compensation is performed using the spacers 30 which poulTont, for example, have three standard sizes. Un autre avantage est qu'en peropératoire le praticien a la possibilité de choisir au dernier moment les entretoises à utiliser en fonction de ses constations. Another advantage is that intraoperative the practitioner has the option to choose at the last moment the spacers to use according to its findings.

La figure 14 montre qu'on peut éventuellement donner à l'entretoise 30 un ou plusieurs angles a 1,ce2 d'inclinaison pour supprimer les déviations du rachis dues à une scoliose mineure ou à une syphose, par exemple. Figure 14 shows that one can optionally provide the spacer 30 one or more angles a 1, ce2 inclination to remove deviations of the spine due to minor scoliosis or a syphose, for example.

Enfin, sur la figure 15 est représentée une bague 10 comportant des oreilles latérales 17', analogues à celles de la bague de la figure 11, et munie, chacune, d'un trou longitudinal 40 de guidage destiné à recevoir une tige de guidage fixée à chaque extrémité à une vertèbre du rachis. Finally, Figure 15 shows a ring 10 having side lugs 17 ', similar to those of the ring of Figure 11, and provided, each, a longitudinal hole 40 of the guide for receiving a guide rod fixed at each end to a vertebra of the spine. Lesdites tiges de guidage forment main-courante pour les bagues qui peuvent de la sorte être maintenues dans une direction prédéterminée ou déterminée en peropératoire. Said guide rods form rails for rings which can thereby be maintained in a predetermined or determined intraoperatively direction.
