The present disclosure relates to a set for connecting a prosthetic assembly of an artificial joint, in particular a glenoidal component of a shoulder prosthesis, to a bone, the set comprising:a prosthetic component comprising a bone contacting surface contacting the bone in an implanted state of the prosthetic component andseparate bone anchoring means, wherein the bone contacting surface of the prosthetic component is provided with a coupling means adapted to be coupled to the bone anchoring means in a mounted state of the prosthetic component. The coupling means and the bone anchoring means are adapted to achieve a tight-fit connection or a form-fit connection, in particular a snap-fit connection, with each other.


An orthopedic plate comprising, a frame portion and a bearing rotatably coupled with the frame portion, wherein the bearing defines an opening configured to receive a fastener for fastening the orthopedic plate to a body, wherein the bearing includes an outer surface that is eccentric to the opening such that a position of the opening with respect to the frame portion is adjustable as the bearing rotates.

The present disclosure provides an intramedullary nail assembly comprising an intramedullary nail and an insert sleeve. The intramedullary nail has a nail longitudinal axis and comprises a cavity being accessible from a nail proximal end, the cavity being confined by a nail inner wall, the cavity having a cavity longitudinal axis. The nail inner wall is provided with a predominantly longitudinal groove and a predominantly transverse groove, the transverse groove and the longitudinal groove communicating with each other at a junction. The insert sleeve is configured to be received within the cavity and comprises a cam radially protruding from the insert sleeve and sized to mate with each of the longitudinal and transverse grooves such that the cam is displaceable within the longitudinal groove from a longitudinal groove proximal end to the junction and is further displaceable towards a terminal end of the transverse groove.

A dynamic stabilization system for stabilizing a vertebral segment of a spine. The system includes a first vertebral anchor, a second vertebral anchor and a cord. The system may also include a spacer positioned between the first and second vertebral anchor through which the cord extends. The first vertebral anchor is configured to be secured to a first vertebra and the second vertebral anchor is configured to be secured to a second vertebra. The cord is extendable from the first vertebral anchor to the second vertebral anchor. The cord has a variable stiffness through a range of displacement, wherein the stiffness of the cord increases as an applied tensile force on the cord is increased.

The present disclosure provides an intramedullary nail assembly comprising an intramedullary nail (11) and an insert sleeve (25). The intramedullary nail (11) has a nail longitudinal axis (13) and comprises a cavity (17) being accessible from a nail proximal end, the cavity (17) being confined by an nail inner wall (19), the cavity (17) having a cavity longitudinal axis (23). The nail inner wall (19) is provided with a predominantly longitudinal groove (31) and a predominantly transverse groove (37), the predominantly transverse groove (37) and the predominantly longitudinal groove (31) communicating with each other at a junction (43). The junction (43) is common to the predominantly longitudinal groove (31) and the predominantly transverse groove (37). Each of the grooves (31, 37) has a length, a width, and a depth. The predominantly longitudinal groove (31) is accessible from a cavity proximal end. The insert sleeve (25) is configured to be received within the cavity (17) and comprises a cam (45). The cam (45) is radially protruding from the insert sleeve (25) and sized to mate with each of the predominantly longitudinal and predominantly transverse grooves (31, 37) such that the cam (45) is displaceable within the predominantly longitudinal groove (31) from a predominantly longitudinal groove proximal end (33) to the junction (43) and is further displaceable towards a terminal end (41) of the predominantly transverse groove (37).

A spinal device and associated method are provided for spreading of first and second vertebral elements, each of the first and second vertebral elements having a circumferential surface defining a vertebral body and a pedicle having a pedicle root portion adjacent the circumferential surface. The device includes a first end member having at least one surface adapted to conform to at least one of the circumferential surface and the pedicle root portion of the first vertebral element, and a second end member having at least one surface adapted to conform to at least one of the circumferential surface and the pedicle root portion of the second vertebral element. The device further includes a resilient member extending between the first and second end members and being adapted to exert a force against the first and second vertebral elements.


Patent
Zimmer Gmbh | Date: 2015-09-04

A prosthetic femoral component (10) for an orthopaedic prosthesis has a canted patellar groove adapted for optimal patella/component interaction, with the component configured to have a medial or lateral cant depending upon the method of implantation. The femoral component defines a distal component transverse plane, which is a plane tangent to the distal-most points of the component condyles (12, 14). In a mechanical implantation, the component transverse plane is substantially normal to the mechanical femoral axis of the femur after the component has been implanted. Where the femoral component is configured to be mechanically oriented in this manner, the component has a medially canted patellar groove. On the other hand, an anatomic implantation is one in which, after the component has been implanted, the component transverse plane is substantially parallel to an anatomic transverse plane. The anatomic transverse plane is perpendicular to the anatomic axis of the femur from a sagittal view, and is inclusive of a line connecting the distal-most points of the natural femoral condyles before resection. Where the femoral component is configured to be anatomically oriented in this way, the component has a non-canted or slightly laterally canted patellar groove.
