Multi-variable-height fusion device

Multi-variable-height fusion device

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1276(1), Nov 4

Method and apparatus for promoting a spinal fusion between neighboring vertebrae are disclosed. Apparatus may be located within the intervertebral disc space and preferably includes a pair of engaging plates for contacting the vertebrae. An alignment device may be used to alter the vertical height between the engaging plates to customize the apparatus to fit a given patient. In one embodiment, the alignment device includes two turnbuckles and two pairs of cam blocks for adjusting the height between the engaging plates.
