  • Publication number: 20190167343
    Abstract: A facet joint surgical tool for treating a facet joint synovial cyst includes rotatable members disposed side-by-side through a minimally invasive sheath and rotatable to reconfigure distal end portions between a facet joint penetration configuration with a tissue piercing tip and a facet joint retraction configuration. Facet joint synovial cysts located to an anterior side of the facet joint are treated by a posterior approach with access to the cyst through the facet joint retracted by the surgical tool. Facet joint synovial cysts located to a posterior side of the facet joint are treated by direct access from a posterior approach.

  • Patent number: 8734477
    Abstract: Provided herein is a method for treating spinal stenosis comprising percutaneously accessing the epidural space from a first side of the spine. The first side of the spine is located on one side of the medial plane with respect to the spinal cord. A tissue removal tool is then advanced through the first side of the epidural space into the other side of the epidural space, where the other side of the epidural space is located on the other side of the medial plane of the spinal cord. Once the tissue removal tool is located on the second side of the medial plane, stenosis can be reduced using the tissue removal tool.

  • Patent number: 7942830
    Abstract: A method for treating spinal stenosis is disclosed. The method can include generating a view of a portion of the spinal canal and compressing the dural sac by injecting a fluid to form a safety zone and establish a working zone, wherein the safety zone can be between the working zone and the dural sac. The method can also include percutaneously accessing the epidural space on a first side of the median plane, inserting a tissue removal tool into tissue in the working zone on the first side of the median plane, and using the tissue removal tool to percutaneously reduce a stenosis on the first side of the median plane.

  • Patent number: 7896879
    Abstract: A method for treating stenosis in a spine comprises percutaneously accessing the epidural space in a stenotic region of interest, compressing the thecal sac in the region of interest to form a safety zone, inserting a tissue removal tool into tissue in the working zone, using the tool to percutaneously reduce the stenosis; and utilizing imaging to visualize the position of the tool during at least a part of the reduction step. A tissue excision system for performing percutaneous surgery, comprises a cannula comprising a tissue-penetrating member having a distal end defining an aperture on one side thereof, an occluding member slidably received on or in the cannula and closing the aperture when the occluding member is adjacent the cannula distal end, means for engaging adjacent tissue via the aperture, and cutting means for resecting a section of the engaged tissue.

  • Publication number: 20090287221
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a device for excising tissue including an outer hollow member having a lumen communicating with a distal opening. The device also includes an elongate member having a longitudinal axis and a distal end, the elongate member being longitudinally movable within the outer hollow member lumen such that the distal end of the elongate member can be moved from a first configuration distal to the outer hollow member distal opening and a second configuration more proximal to the outer hollow member distal opening. Further, the device includes at least one grasping member hingedly disposed about a distal portion of the elongate member along a generally longitudinal axis, wherein movement of the elongate member from the first configuration to the second configuration can cause displacement of the at least one grasping member about the generally longitudinal axis.
