Abstract

The present invention presents a minimally invasive method and device for reconstructing and supporting a fractured or diseased bone, preferably a fractured or diseased vertebra. In addition this invention aims to provide supporting means (20) for a space previously occupied by a diseased intervertebral disc, which has been completely or partially removed. The minimally invasive reconstructing and supporting spiral device (20) comprises a coiled structure made of a coiled strap or for example shape-memory material, whereby the strap is advanced towards a predetermined position in a deployed state (22) and regains a coiled shape (30) within the target position providing a supporting prosthesis.
