Abstract

Sistemas para aumento de disco minimamente invasivo, incluyen un componente de aumento de anillo (12) y un componente de aumento de nucleo (7). Ambos son adecuados para un despliegue invasivo minimo. El componente de aumento de nucleo (7) restaura la altura del disco y/o reemplaza el nucleo pulposo faltante. El componente de aumento de anillo (12) protege regiones debilitadas de la capsula fibrosa y/o resiste escape de nucleo pulposo natural y/o componente de aumento de nucleo (7). Tambien se describen metodos y dispositivos de despliegue.
