|| List of recent Bone As-related patents
|Magnet arrangement for bone conduction hearing implant|
An implantable magnetic transducer arrangement is described for a hearing implant in a recipient patient. An implant housing hermetically encapsulates an interior housing volume and is fixedly attached to skull bone beneath the skin of the patient.
|Process for securing a dental implant and dental implant|
The present invention concerns a method for inserting a dental implant into the jawbone as a replacement for a tooth, said jawbone comprising cortical bone matter surrounding a core of spongy bone, wherein a hole is excavated in the cortical bone of the upper surface of the jawbone using an excavation tool, said hole penetrating mainly the cortical bone matter of the jawbone. The excavation tool is then removed and a threaded implant is placed in the excavated hole of the upper surface of the jawbone; the threaded implant is forwarded into the spongy bone core of the jawbone without any prior drilling having been done into the spongy bone section of the jawbone; and the implant is left in the spongy bone core of the jawbone for promoting integration of the implant with the surrounding bone (osteointegration).
|Interchangeable orthopedic blade|
An interchangeable orthopedic blade that includes an internal portion and an external portion. The internal portion threads onto either a pre-installed k-wire or a pre-installed screw so as to more accurately place the interchangeable orthopedic blade in, without excessive damage to, the bone when repairing a fracture in the bone, and ultimately providing absolute stable fixation by the interchangeable orthopedic blade holding the fracture in its anatomic position and resisting applied forces while healing, to thereby provide a stable anatomic restoration and eliminate a need for revision surgery due to failure of fixation or malunion.
|Percutaneous posterolateral spine fusion|
A method, tools, and system for performing a percutaneous or minimally invasive spine fusion procedure are provided. A trocar and then dilator are used to create a channel for a hollow and longitudinally slit delivery tube.
|Anchoring systems and methods for surgery|
A surgical ring and related methods for plantar plate reconstruction and other surgical procedures are described. In particular, the described anchoring systems and surgical methods may include an anchor configured to wrap at least partially around a first bone associated with an affected joint, and wrap at least partially around a tissue alongside the first bone.
|Composite device that combines porous metal and bone stimuli|
An orthopaedic implant for filling voids in bones, and methods of using the same. The orthopaedic implant comprises an open porous metal component, having pores for promoting bone regeneration, and a resorbable bone growth promoting component which is resorbed into new bone.
|Magnet arrangement for bone conduction hearing implant|
An implantable magnet arrangement is described for a hearing implant in a recipient patient. A pair of implant magnets are fixable in a common plane beneath the skin of the patient to underlying skull bone.
|Agent for dysfunction due to neuropathy and rho kinase activation inhibitor|
An object of the present invention is to provide a substance which is able to be an active ingredient for the improvement of dysfunction caused by nerve damage. An improving agent for dysfunction due to nerve damage of the present invention as a means for resolution thereof is characterized in that it comprises an endo-β-n-acetylglucosaminidase type enzyme which hydrolyzes an n-acetylglucosamide bond in a keratan sulfate backbone as an active ingredient.
In a qfp with a chip-stacked structure in which a lower surface of a die pad is exposed from a lower surface of a sealing member, a semiconductor chip having a bcb film, which is made of a polymeric material containing at least benzocyclobutene in its backbone as an organic monomer and formed on its surface, is mounted at a position (second stage) that is away from the die pad. As a result, even when moisture invades through the interface between the die pad and the sealing member, it is possible to prolong the time required for the moisture to reach the semiconductor chip, and subsequently to make moisture absorption defect less likely to occur..
|Apparatus for bone aspiration|
A bone marrow aspiration apparatus comprising a hollow; stylet removably positioned within said needle; a cylindrical threaded section; a depth gauge threadedly engagable with and movable longitudinally along the threaded section and having a proximal and distal ends, the proximal end being spaced a variable first distance from the end of the needle; a locking nut movable along the threaded section; a cap connection section having a fluid fitting therein; a cap engagable with the cap connection and engaged with the stylet; wherein the threaded section and the depth gauge define a stylet passage between the fluid fitting and the proximal end of the depth gauge; and wherein the variable first distance between the end of the hollow needle and the proximal end of the depth gauge corresponds to a position of the distal annular end of the depth gauge relative to the threaded section.. .
