Intra-Vertebral Implant

Collaborator: Lev Goldenberg, Kalman Shvartsman, R. Gipshtein MD

The purpose of this implant is to support and stabilize the spinal column in cases of total or partial veretebroctomy. The adaptive geometry of the implant can be adjusted to various anatomies. The length of the implant can be changed after the implant was set in place by a special tool allowing its two parts to move vertically with respect to each other. The space between the top and the bottom plates can be filled with segments of bone that will grow and fuse the top and the bottom vertebra.
