Spinal tissue distraction devices
WO 2007022194 A3
Abstract
Spinal tissue distraction devices (136) that include an elongated member which has a pre- deployed configuration for insertion between tissue layers and a deployed configuration in which the elongated member, by change of configuration, forms a helical or spiral support structure (141) for separating and supporting layers of spinal tissue. The distraction devices may also limit and direct the movement of flowable material to substantially reduce extravasation.
