In some embodiments, an intervertebral implant may include a body including a superior and an inferior surface. The implant may include a first channel extending from an anterior end towards the posterior end of the body. The implant may include a first anchor channel. The implant may include a first guide member positionable in the first channel. The implant may include a first anchor. When the first guide member moves from a first position to a second position the first anchor may be conveyed through the first anchor channel and couple the body to an adjacent vertebra. In some embodiments, the implant may include a first locking mechanism which inhibits, during use, the first guide member from moving from the second position to the first position upon activation of the first locking mechanism.

Disclosed herein is a kit that includes a humeral stem having a central longitudinal axis, the humeral stem configured to attach to a resected bone; a first tuberosity component having a first thickness relative to the central longitudinal axis of the humeral stem; a second tuberosity component having a second thickness relative to the central longitudinal axis of the humeral stem, wherein the first thickness of the first tuberosity component is different than the second thickness of the second tuberosity component; and at least one proximal segment configured to engage at least one of the first tuberosity component and the second tuberosity component. In an embodiment, the first thickness of the first tuberosity component is at least 20 mm relative to the central axis of the humeral stem, and the second thickness of the second tuberosity component is at least 20 mm relative to the central axis of the humeral stem.

Various embodiments of the present invention relate to an apparatus and method for reverse shoulder arthroplasty (e.g., reverse total shoulder arthroplasty). In one specific example, a glenoid component used to resurface the scapula may be provided. Of note, unlike traditional total shoulder arthroplasty the glenoid component in a reverse shoulder is convex rather than concave; it acts as a physical stop to prevent the superior migration of the humeral head - a typical occurrence in patients suffering from rotator cuff tear arthropathy (CTA).

Adjustable reverse shoulder prostheses are disclosed herein. A glenoid assembly includes a glenoid plate configured for fixation to a glenoid bone for a reverse shoulder prosthesis; a glenosphere configured for connection to the glenoid plate; and an adjustment plate, wherein the adjustment plate has a connection for directly engaging the glenosphere, and wherein the adjustment plate has an articulation for directly engaging the glenoid plate at a variable angular orientation. During a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty method, a glenoid plate is fixated to a glenoid bone; an adjustment plate, configured for interfacing with both the glenoid plate and a glenosphere, is locked to the glenoid plate, wherein the adjustment plate is configured for angular orientation or positional change relative to the glenoid plate; a glenosphere is connected to the adjustment plate; and an angular orientation and position of the glenosphere relative to the fixated glenoid plate is independently adjusted.


A system includes a patella trial comprising a baseplate and an articular surface member configured to move along at least one of a medial-lateral axis or a superior-inferior axis of the baseplate; and an implant comprising a posterior articular surface and an anterior surface, wherein the anterior surface has a medial/lateral width with a midpoint, wherein the posterior articular surface has a posterior-most point, wherein an imaginary line extending through the posterior-most point is parallel to an imaginary line extending through the midpoint, and wherein a distance (I) is defined by measuring a length between the imaginary line extending through the posterior-most point and the imaginary line extending through the midpoint; wherein the implant is selected from a set of implants each having a different I, and wherein the chosen implant is selected based on an offset of the articular surface member relative to the baseplate on the patella trial.


In some embodiments, an intervertebral implant may include a body including a superior and an inferior surface. The implant may include a first channel extending from an anterior end towards the posterior end of the body. The implant may include a first anchor channel The implant may include a first guide member positionable in the first channel The implant may include a first anchor. When the first guide member moves from a first position to a second position the first anchor may be conveyed through the first anchor channel and couple the body to an adjacent vertebra.

Disclosed herein are components of a reverse shoulder prosthesis. In an embodiment, a reverse shoulder prosthesis includes a humeral adapter tray configured to sit near a resected surface of a humerus, the humeral adapter tray comprising: a cavity; a central bore; and a distal face including a boss, the boss: (i) configured as an extension of the distal face, (ii) posteriorly offset from the central bore by at least 10 mm, and (iii) configured to engage a humeral stem; and a humeral liner comprising: a distal rim configured to sit within the cavity of the humeral adapter tray; and a concave articulating surface configured to mate with a convex articulating surface of a glenosphere. In an embodiment, the boss, in addition to being posteriorly offset, is superiorly offset from the central bore by at least 8 mm. In an embodiment, the reverse shoulder a humeral stem which engages the boss.

Provided is an intervertebral implant to be implanted within an intervertebral space between endplates of adjacent vertebra during use. The implant includes an upper member having an inferior surface including an upper guide track and a superior surface to contact an endplate of an upper one of the adjacent vertebra during use, a lower member having a superior surface including a lower guide track and an inferior surface to contact an endplate of a lower one of the adjacent vertebra during use, and an insert having a superior surface including an upper guide rail to engage the upper guide track during use and an inferior surface including a lower guide rail to engage the lower guide track during use. Engagement of the upper and lower guide rails with the upper and lower guide tracks, respectively, guides insertion of the insert between the upper and lower members during use, and insertion of the insert between the upper and lower members facilitates expansion of the intervertebral implant.
