A bone screw includes a shaft, a cannulated portion formed in the shaft, and a fenestration in the shaft connecting the cannulated portion to an exterior of the bone screw. A wall between the cannulated portion and the exterior of the bone screw includes a first wall portion having a different thickness than a second wall portion.


A method of mixing and delivering a substance to a bone includes providing a compressible tube having a reservoir and using a mixing apparatus to mix a particulate solid and a mixing liquid to form the substance within the reservoir of the compressible tube. The method further includes using a compressing device to move the substance through an exit port in the compressible tube for delivery to the bone. The compressing device may be positioned on the compressible tube and the method may further include moving the compressing device along the compressible tube to empty the substance from the compressible tube. The substance may be a bone void filler, and the substance may be delivered from the exit port in the tube through a delivery apparatus, such as a cannula, to a target portion of the anatomy.

A virtual tray system includes a tray inventory system configured to track a current inventory of a tray, with one or more details associated with each item in the tray. The inventory includes a plurality of items, such as medical devices, instruments, tools, or implants. The virtual tray system further includes a database configured to store the current inventory of the tray and a user interface system configured to generate a visual representation of the inventory of the tray for display on a user interface of a user device. The virtual tray system further includes a communications system configured to receive an input relating to a change in status of at least one of the items in the tray. Based on the input, the tray inventory system is configured to update the current inventory of the tray and update the visual representation of the tray based on the input.

An optical film and a digital pen system using the same are provided. The optical film includes a film layer including a fine structure, a coating layer coated on the fine structure and having an infrared ray scattering property, and a matching layer laminated above or below the film layer and having a refractive index matching a refractive index of the fine structure within a predetermined error range.


A bone fixation system includes a fixation device configured to be positioned at a target area of bone comprising two ends connected by a shaft and further comprising a bore formed through the shaft configured to receive a fixation screw. The system further includes a drill bit sized and configured to pass through the bore to prepare the surrounding bone to receive a second fixation device. At least a distal portion of the drill bit is configured to pass through the bore. The fixation device is made of a first material and wherein the distal portion of the drill bit comprises at least an outer portion made of a second material. The second material of the drill bit has a hardness that is less than the hardness of the first material of the fixation device.


A method of preparing a bone to receive a fixation screw through a fixation device includes providing a drill bit sized and configured to pass through a bore in a fixation device positioned in the bone and drilling a passage into the bone and through the bore. At least a distal portion of the drill bit passes through the bore in the drilling step. At least an outer portion of the distal portion of the drill bit has a hardness that is less than a hardness of the fixation nail.
