Abstract

Methods of repairing a joint formed by at least two bone sections are provided wherein a biocompatible osteogenic band fabricated from an osteogenic biological material such as bone, tendon, ligament and collagen is affixed to two or more bone sections.

Independent Claims | See all claims (12)

  1. 1. A method for repairing a joint formed by at least two adjacent vertebrae, the method comprising: providing a biocompatible osteogenic band comprising bone having a first end and a second end, the osteogenic band comprising a plurality of braided or woven elongated sections of bone, and affixing said first end of the biocompatible osteogenic band to a first vertebra and affixing said second end to a second vertebra, the first and second vertebrae being identical to, or encompassing, the adjacent vertebrae, to maintain the joint formed by the adjacent vertebrae under tension.
