Patent application FR-A-2693364 (VOYDEVILLE) discloses an inter-vertebral prosthesis for stabilizing rotational constraints and flexion-extension.

La prothèse décrite dans ce document comporte un ligament souple comportant une première partie mince et une seconde partie large pour permettre un laçage en "8" autour des épineuses de deux vertèbres contiguës et pour effectuer un cerclage péri-épineux ; The prosthesis described in this document comprises a flexible ligament comprises a first thin portion and a second wider portion to allow lacing "8" around the spinous two adjacent vertebrae and for performing banding peri-spinous; la prothèse comporte une cale inter-épineuse semi-souple percée de deux paires de canaux traversant, adaptées pour le passage des deux parties respectives du ligament, et comporte en outre des moyens pour fermer le ligament sur lui-meme. the prosthesis comprises a semi-flexible interspinous wedge pierced by two pairs of channels therethrough adapted for the passage of two respective parts of the ligament, and further comprises means for closing the ligament on itself.

La demande de brevet FR-A-2 700 941 (FELMAN) décrit une cale inter-épineuse semi-rigide, composite. Patent application FR-A-2700941 (Felman) discloses an interspinous wedge semi-rigid, composite. comprenant un noyau en tissu synthétique tressé et enroulé sur lui-même et comportant une coque en titane enveloppant de toute part le noyau en tissu synthétique, qui est de forme trapézoïdale comportant six faces ; comprising a core of woven synthetic fabric and wound on itself and having a titanium shell enveloping the core of any part of synthetic material, which is trapezoidal in shape having six faces; la prothèse comporte en outre quatre appendices métalliques de fixation et quatre appendices textiles de fixation. the prosthesis further comprises four metal appendages and fixing textile four appendices fixing.

La présente invention a pour objet de procurer une cale interépineuse vertébrale améliorée pour rentrer dans la constitution d'une prothèse vertébrale de performance élevée. The present invention aims to provide an interspinous vertebral wedge improved for entering into the constitution of a spinal prosthesis of high performance.

Le problème posé, notamment par la prothèse décrite dans le document VOYDEVILLE qui comporte un ligament en polyester et une cale semi-souple en polyester également, est que les forces de pression entre la cale et les épineuses, ou bien entre la cale et le ligament, peuvent provoquer une usure des constituants de la prothèse aboutissant à une abrasion des faces en contact qui se traduit par la production de particules libres de polyester pouvant conduire à de très graves inflammations. The problem, in particular by the prosthesis disclosed in VOYDEVILLE which comprises a polyester ligament, and a semi-flexible wedge polyester also is that the pressure forces between the wedge and the spinous, or between the shim and the ligament , can cause wear of the components of the prosthesis resulting in abrasion of the surfaces in contact which results in the production of polyester free particles may lead to very severe inflammation.

La présente invention vise notamment à remédier à cet inconvénient des cales pour prothèses vertébrales. The present invention aims to overcome this disadvantage shims to vertebral prostheses.

La solution au problème posé consiste à procurer conformément à l'invention une cale inter-épineuse, essentiellement constituée par un noyau cylindrique élastique ou sensiblement viscoélastique, laquelle cale est dotée d'interfaces ou de faces de contact avec les épineuses, qui sont métalliques, et ladite cale comporte des moyens pour contrôler la déformation du noyau élastique, lesquels moyens de contrôle de la déformation sont de préférence constitués par une bande textile ceinturant le corps élastique. The solution to the problem is to provide in accordance with the invention an interspinous wedge consisting essentially of an elastic or substantially cylindrical core viscoelastic, which wedge is provided with interfaces or contact surfaces with the spinous processes, which are of metal, and said spacer comprises means for controlling the deformation of the resilient core, wherein the deformation control means is preferably constituted by a textile tape surrounding the resilient body.

En d'autres termes l'invention consiste à procurer une cale inter-épineuse munie d'au moins deux canaux de passage d'un ligament, essentiellement constituée par In other words the invention consists in providing an interspinous wedge provided with at least two channels for passage of a ligament, consisting essentially of
- un corps central en matériau visco élastique en forme de cylindre doté de deux faces parallèles, - a central body viscoelastic material cylinder-shaped with two parallel sides,
- une plaque supérieure, mince, plane, métallique, dont le contour est sensiblement identique à la directrice dudit cylindre, qui est posée ou plaquée contre la face supérieure dudit corps, - a top plate, thin, flat, metal, whose contour is substantially identical to the director of said cylinder, which is laid or pressed against the upper face of said body,
- une plaque inférieure sensiblement identique à ladite plaque supérieure, qui est posée ou plaquée contre la face inférieure dudit corps, - a bottom plate substantially identical to said upper plate, which is laid or pressed against the underside of said body,
- une bande textile, tissée ou tricotée, entourant ou ceinturant ledit corps. - a textile web, woven or knitted, surrounding or encircling said body.

Selon des modes préférentiels de réalisation de l'invention In preferred embodiments of the invention
- la directrice dudit cylindre est sensiblement symétrique par rapport à son axe longitudinal, - the director of said cylinder is substantially symmetrical about its longitudinal axis,
- la directrice dudit cylindre est sensiblement constituée par deux demi directrices disposées symétriquement par rapport à un axe longitudinal, chacune des demi-directrices étant constituée de trois tronçons curvilignes successifs disposés bout à bout, un premier tronçon curviligne convexe, un deuxième tronçon curviligne concave, un troisième tronçon curviligne convexe, - the director of said cylinder is substantially constituted by two half symmetrically arranged guiding with respect to a longitudinal axis, each of the half-guiding consisting of three successive curvilinear portions arranged end to end, a first convex curved segment, a second concave curvilinear portion, a third convex curvilinear segment,
- ledit corps est sensiblement symétrique par rapport à un plan - said body is substantially symmetrical with respect to a plane
P1, chaque demi-corps comportant trois faces latérales curvilignes adjacentes, une première face curviligne avant convexe, une deuxième face curviligne centrale concave, une troisième face curviligne arrière convexe, P1, each half-body having three side faces adjacent curvilinear, a first curvilinear convex front face, a second face concave central arcuate, a third curved convex rear face,
- lesdites plaques inférieure et supérieure sont symétriques par rapport à un plan P1, chaque demi-plaque comportant trois faces latérales adjacentes, une première face curviligne convexe, une deuxième face curviligne concave, une troisième face curviligne convexe, - said lower and upper plates are symmetrical with respect to a plane P1, each half-plate having three adjacent lateral faces, a first convex curved surface, a second curvilinear concave surface, a third convex curvilinear face,
- ledit corps est essentiellement constitué par un bloc de silicone, lesdites plaques sont essentiellement constituées par du titane, et ladite bande est en textile polyester, c'est-à-dire d'un matériau différent du matériau utilisé pour la réalisation dudit corps, - said body is essentially constituted by a silicone block, said plates consist essentially of titanium, and said strip is polyester textile, that is to say of a material different from the material used for the realization of said body,
- la cale comporte des liens de préférence textiles permettant d'attacher ou de fixer la bande ou ceinture au bord desdites plaques inférieures et supérieures, - the wedge has links textile preference for attaching or fixing the strip or belt at the edge of said upper and lower plates,
- chacune desdites plaques inférieure et supérieure comporte des orifices de passage des liens, par exemple au nombre de 4, de préférence disposées symétriquement par rapport à des axes longitudinaux respectifs desdites plaques, - each of said lower and upper plates has passage orifices links, for example 4 in number, preferably arranged symmetrically with respect to respective longitudinal axes of said plates,
- ladite bande textile est enroulée autour dudit corps selon plusieurs tours ou enroulements, et comporte un premier tour ou enroulement épousant la paroi concave faisant partie des parois latérales dudit cylindre, laquelle bande comporte un deuxième tour n 'épousant pas ladite paroi ou face latérale concave dudit cylindre, de même que les tours de rangs supérieurs, - said textile strip is wound around said body according to several turns or windings, and has a first turn or coil conforming to the concave wall part of the side walls of said cylinder, which strip comprises a second tower does not espousing said wall or concave side face said cylinder, as well as the turns of higher ranks,
- lesdits canaux de passage du ligament sont délimités par des enroulements successifs de ladite bande, et ont une section transversale dont la surface est très grande (par exemple au moins 5 à 10 fois supérieure) par rapport à la surface d'une section transversale du ligament. - said ligament through channels are defined by successive windings of said tape, and have a cross section whose surface is very large (for example at least 5 to 10 times) relative to the surface of a cross section of the ligament.

Selon un mode préférentiel de réalisation, l'épaisseur desdites plaques est inférieure à la moitié de l'épaisseur dudit corps, par exemple de l'ordre de 1/5e à 1/10e de l'épaisseur dudit corps. According to a preferred embodiment, the thickness of said plates is less than half the thickness of said body, for example of the order of 1 / 5th to 1 / 10th of the thickness of said body.

L'ensemble des constituants de la cale selon l'invention et leur agencement particulier confèrent à cette cale un comportement élastique tant en compression qu'en extension. All the components of the block according to the invention and their particular arrangement give this wedge elastic behavior in both compression and extension.

Les cales selon l'invention évitent ou du moins limitent fortement la production de particules provenant de l'usure par contact ou frottement des parties abrasibles de ladite cale grâce notamment à la présence des moyens de contrôle de l'élasticité et/ou de la déformation (écrasement) du corps central, qui sont de préférence constitués par une bande textile ceinturant ce corps ; Shims according to the invention prevents or at least strongly limit the production of particles from the contact wear or friction abradable portions of said shim thanks to the presence of elasticity of the control means and / or deformation (crushing) of the central body, which are preferably constituted by a textile tape surrounding the body; on peut également éviter des phénomènes de fissuration ou d'usure du corps central, susceptibles d'être provoqués au bout d'un certain temps après l'implantation de ces cales. it can also avoid cracking phenomena or wear of the central body, which may be caused after a certain time after implantation of these wedges.

Grâce à la présence des plaques métalliques, de préférence en titane, formant interfaces ou faces de contact avec les épineuses, l'usure du bloc élastique central (de préférence en silicone) est évitée et grâce à la ceinture textile entourant le bloc silicone, on évite également le cisaillement du bloc central et son usure. Thanks to the presence of the metal plates, preferably made of titanium, forming interfaces or contact surfaces with the spinous, the wear of the central elastic block (preferably silicone) is avoided and through the textile belt surrounding the silicone block, also avoids the shearing of the central block and wear.

La forme particulière du bloc silicone et l'agencement particulier de la bande textile ceinturant le bloc silicone, permettent de définir des puits ou logements de passage d'un ligament (de fixation de la cale entre deux épineuses) qui permettent d'éviter ou de limiter très fortement tout frottement et par conséquent toute production de particules libres, susceptibles de provoquer des inflammations. The particular form of the particular silicone and the block arrangement of the textile tape surrounding the silicone block, are used to define well or passageway housing a ligament (fixing of the wedge between two spinous) that avoid or greatly limit any friction and therefore any production of free particles that can cause inflammation.

Les nombreux avantages procurés par l'invention seront mieux compris au travers de la description suivante qui se réfère aux dessins annexés qui illustrent sans aucun caractère limitatif un mode préférentiel de réalisation de l'invention. The many benefits of the invention will be better understood from the following description which refers to the accompanying drawings that illustrate without limiting nature a preferred embodiment of the invention.

La Figure 1 illustre en vue en perspective schématique éclatée les quatre constituants essentiels d'une cale rentrant dans la composition d'une prothèse vertébrale selon l'invention. Figure 1 shows in exploded schematic perspective the four essential components of a shim used in the composition of a spinal prosthesis according to the invention.

La Figure 2 qui est sensiblement une vue selon II de la Figure 1, illustre en vue en plan une cale inter-épineuse selon l'invention. Figure 2 which is substantially a view on II of Figure 1, illustrates in plan view an interspinous wedge according to the invention.

La cale 1 inter-épineuse est essentiellement constituée par une plaque 2 supérieure destinée à être posée et plaquée contre la face 6 supérieure d'un corps cylindrique central 3, une plaque inférieure 4 identique à la plaque supérieure 2, étant disposée ou plaquée contre la face inférieure 7 du corps central 3. The wedge 1 interspinous is essentially constituted by a plate 2 intended to be placed and pressed against the upper face 6 of a central cylindrical body 3, a bottom plate 4 identical to the upper plate 2 being disposed or pressed against the lower face 7 of the central body 3.

Comme illustré schématiquement Figure 1 et plus particulièrement As schematically illustrated in Figure 1 and particularly
Figure 2, le corps 3 central et éventuellement les plaques supérieure et inférieure (2, 4) sont entourés ou ceinturés par une bande textile 5 qui est enroulée autour de la cale selon plusieurs tours, comme représenté schématiquement à la Figure 2, dans laquelle les repères 13 et 14 désignent les extrémités longitudinales de ladite bande 5 ; 2, the body central 3 and optionally the top and bottom plates (2, 4) are surrounded or belted by a textile web 5 which is wound around the block according to several turns, as shown schematically in Figure 2, wherein the pins 13 and 14 denote the longitudinal ends of said strip 5; les repères 30 et 31 de la Figure 1 se réfèrent aux bords longitudinaux de ladite bande 5, lesquels bords longitudinaux sont parallèles entre eux et séparés d'une distance 23 constituant la largeur de la bande 5. pins 30 and 31 of Figure 1 refer to the longitudinal edges of said strip 5, which longitudinal edges are parallel to each other and separated by a distance constituting the width 23 of the strip 5.

La largeur ou hauteur 23 de la bande 5 est ainsi voisine de la hauteur 18 du corps central 3, éventuellement égale à la somme des hauteurs respectives 17, 18, 19, de ladite plaque inférieure dudit corps central 3 et de ladite plaque supérieure. The width or height 23 of the band 5 is thus close to the height 18 of the central body 3, optionally equal to the sum of the respective heights 17, 18, 19, said bottom plate 3 and said central body of said top plate.

Comme illustré Figure 1, ledit corps 3, ainsi que lesdites plaques inférieure et supérieure 2, 4 sont de forme cylindrique, lesdites plaques 2, 4 étant minces ou très aplaties, leur épaisseur 17, 19 respective étant par exemple de l'ordre de 0,5 à 1 millimètre, pour une épaisseur du corps central 3 par exemple de l'ordre de 10 millimètres. As shown in Figure 1, said body 3, and said upper and lower plates 2, 4 are of cylindrical shape, said plates 2, 4 being very thin or flat, the thickness 17, 19 respectively being for example of the order of 0 5 to 1 mm, for a thickness of the central body 3, for example of the order of 10 millimeters.

Ledit corps 3 et lesdites plaques 2, 4 ont un profil identique ou très voisin qui est respectivement symétrique par rapport à des axes longitudinaux respectifs de ces trois éléments qui sont repérés 10, 11 et 12, lesquels axes sont parallèles et contenus dans un plan P1 de symétrie générale. Said body 3 and the plates 2, 4 have the same or very similar profile which is respectively symmetrical about the respective longitudinal axes of these three elements, which are labeled 10, 11 and 12, which axes are parallel and contained in a plane P1 of general symmetry.

On voit en particulier sur la Figure 1 que, concernant la plaque supérieure 2, ladite plaque s'étend selon l'axe longitudinal 10, est symétrique par rapport à cet axe, comporte quatre trous ou orifices 16 traversant la plaque mince 2, qui servent à la fixation par couture par des liens textiles 15 par exemple, comme illustré Figure 2, des différents enroulements de la bande 5 avec lesdites plaques d'extrémité 2 et 4. particularly seen in Figure 1 that on the top plate 2, said plate extends along the longitudinal axis 10, is symmetrical to this axis, has four holes or orifices 16 passing through the thin plate 2, which serve fixing by sewing of textile links 15 for example as shown in Figure 2, the different windings of the strip 5 with said end plates 2 and 4.

Par référence à la Figure 1, ladite plaque 2 supérieure comporte une face curviligne convexe 36, qui est adjacente à une face curviligne concave 37, elle-même adjacente à une face curviligne convexe arrière 38. Referring to Figure 1, said cover plate 2 has a convex curved face 36, which is adjacent to a concave curved face 37, itself adjacent to a convex curved rear face 38.

Comme illustré Figures 1 et 2, un point anguleux ou une arete vive peut être prévu à la jonction des deux faces curvilignes convexes "avant" 36 de ladite plaque 2, de même qu'illustré pour ce qui concerne le corps central 3, qui comporte également des faces curvilignes convexes 20 situées dans la partie avant dudit corps central qui sont disposées symétriquement par rapport à un plan P1 de symétrie générale de la cale, les deux faces 20 symétriques étant jointes par une arête 27 portant un point anguleux 9, comme également illustré Figure 2. As illustrated in Figures 1 and 2, a sharp point or a sharp edge may be provided at the junction of two convex curvilinear faces "front" 36 of the plate 2, as shown with regard to the central body 3, which comprises also convex curvilinear faces 20 located in the front part of said central body which are arranged symmetrically with respect to a general symmetry plane P1 of the cleat, the two sides 20 symmetrical being joined by an edge 27 on an angular point 9, as also shown in Figure 2.

On voit donc sur cette Figure 1 que ledit corps central 3 comporte, outre ladite face avant convexe curviligne 20, une face centrale concave curviligne 21, suivie d'une face arrière convexe curviligne 22, dont les arêtes supérieures respectives 33, 34, 35 constituent des tronçons curvilignes qui sont respectivement convexe, concave et convexe, et qui définissent la demi-directrice du cylindre délimitant le corps central 3 ; It is therefore seen from this Figure 1 that said central body 3 comprises, in addition to said front convex curved 20, a concave curvilinear central face 21, followed by a curved convex rear face 22, the respective upper edges 33, 34, 35 are curvilinear sections which are convex respectively concave and convex, and which define the half-director of the cylinder defining the main body 3; ledit cylindre est d'axe vertical (par rapport à la Figure 1) qui est repéré 32 sur cette Figure. said cylinder has a vertical axis (relative to Figure 1) which is denoted 32 in this figure.

On voit également Figure 1 que des arêtes 28, 29 proéminentes constituent la frontière entre lesdites faces respectives 20, 21 d'une part et 21, 22 d'autre part, dudit corps central 3. Also shown in Figure 1 that the edges 28, 29 protruding form the boundary between said respective faces 20, 21 on the one hand and 21, 22 on the other hand, said central body 3.

Comme illustré Figure 2, ladite bande 5 est enroulée autour de ladite cale, c'est-à-dire autour dudit corps et desdites plaques supérieure et inférieure qui sont plaquées contre les faces supérieure et inférieure du corps 3, pour constituer un premier tour s'étendant à partir d'une extrémité 13 de ladite bande, lequel premier tour ou enroulement 25 est au contact ou épouse la forme extérieure dudit bloc central 3 et éventuellement desdites plaques et en particulier épouse intimement la face centrale concave 21 ménagée dans le corps central 3 de part et d'autre de celui-ci, alors que le deuxième tour ou enroulement 26 de ladite bande 5 et éventuellement les enroulements suivants successifs (se terminant par la deuxième extrémité 14 de la bande 5) ne sont pas tous plaqués intimement contre ladite paroi concave 21, de sorte qu'ils s'étendent sensiblement selon une forme ovale 8 fictive représentée en pointillés sur la Figure 2, et délimitent ainsi avec ledit p As shown in Figure 2, said band 5 is wrapped around said shim, that is to say around said body and said upper and lower plates which are pressed against the upper and lower faces of the body 3, to form a first turn s extending from one end 13 of said band, which first turn or winding 25 is in contact or follows the outer shape of said central block 3 and optionally of said plates and in particular wife intimately the concave central face 21 formed in the central body 3 to either side thereof, while the second turn or winding 26 of the strip 5 and optionally the following successive windings (ending with the second end 14 of the band 5) are not all plated intimately against said concave wall 21, so that they extend substantially along a notional oval 8 shown in dotted lines in Figure 2, and so define with said p remier enroulement, c'est-à-dire avec la face concave dudit corps 3, deux canaux 24 cylindriques s'étendant parallèlement à l'axe repéré 32 Figure 1, et permettant le passage d'un ligament de fixation de la cale à deux épineuses consécutives de la colonne vertébrale. irst winding, that is to say, with the concave face of said body 3, two cylindrical channels 24 extending parallel to the axis marked 32 in Figure 1, and allowing passage of a fixing ligament shim in two consecutive spinous spine.
