The present disclosure provides a femoral prosthesis for use during a revision procedure. The femoral prosthesis includes a body, a neck, a stem, and a sleeve.
|Self-osteotomizing bone implant and related method|
A bone implant includes a head and a core body extending from the head to a tip. An osteotomy blade extends outwardly from at least a portion of the core body to form a spiral thread.
|Bone anchors, kits, and methods for securing portions of bone|
Embodiments of apparatuses, kits, and methods for securing portions of bone (e.g., for an osteotomy).. .
|Pivoting cut guides|
The present disclosure provides a cut guide for use in preparation of the distal femur to form the anterior, anterior chamfer, distal, posterior chamfer and posterior facets as well as the intercondylar box cuts utilized to prepare a femoral intercondylar box. To allow for the use of a single cutting guide to make all of these femoral osteotomies, the present disclosure implements an orthopedic guide assembly including a primary guide body with a secondary guide body rotatably connected to the primary guide body.
|Bone treatment system|
A system for removing bone growths and realigning bones includes a bone planer and an osteotomy guide. The bone planer includes a hollow sleeve that has an end embeddable within a bone.
|Method and implant for stabilizing two bone portions separated by a cut or fracture|
In a human or animal patient, two bone portions separated by a cut or fracture are stabilized in a desired position relative to each other by bringing the two bone portions into this desired position, by pulling them against each other, by providing an opening having a mouth on a bone surface and reaching across the cut or fracture and walls in both bone portions, by inserting an implant into the opening and anchoring the implant in the walls of the opening with the aid of a material having thermoplastic properties and energy transmitted into the implant for in situ liquefaction of at least part of the material having thermoplastic properties. One exemplary application of the stabilizing procedure concerns the two tibial bone portions separated by tibial plateau leveling osteotomy in a canine patient suffering from cranial cruciate ligament damage or rupture in a stifle joint..
|Dental drill with angulation to improve osteotomy formation|
A dental drill is disclosed which allows for an osteotomy to be formed in a shape which closely matches the cylindrical shape of many dental implants. In so doing, the implant engages more tissue of the resulting osteotomy, thus resulting in greater ability for the tissue to penetrate and fuse with the implant while also reducing the chances of infection and reducing the overall recovery time.
|Method and apparatus for performing an open wedge, high tibial osteotomy|
And further wherein at least a portion of the body is formed out of a bone growth-promoting material whereby to enhance bone healing across the osteotomy opening in the bone.. .
|Patient-specific high tibia osteotomy|
A surgical method for tibia osteotomy includes attaching a patient-specific alignment guide to a corresponding surface of a tibia of a patient for whom the alignment guide is customized during a pre-operative planning stage and making a partial bone cut in the tibia through a planar slot of the alignment guide. The planar slot is oriented at a patient-specific angle relative to an anatomic axis of the patient and the angle is customized during the pre-operative planning stage.
|Metatarsal fixation device, system and method|
A metatarsal fixation device is provided for fixation of osteotomy or fracture of a distal metatarsal metaphysis bone of the human foot and for fixation of an associated capsule to the metatarsal head. The device includes a metallic bone plate with a series of screw holes along an elongated portion of the plate and a combination of a singular screw hole and a resilient clamp on an end of the elongated portion.
|Devices, systems and methods for re-alignment of bone|
A bone re-angling device may be used in performing an osteotomy. The re-angling device may be a generally wedge-shaped body.
|Ultrasound guided automated wireless distraction osteogenesis|
A bone distraction device applies guided incremental forces to opposing bone segments for the purpose of generating native bone in an osteotomy site (distraction osteogenesis). The bone distraction device automatically adjusts the rate of the distraction utilizing feedback received from the ultrasound transducer and other sensors, using an adaptive decision algorithm(s).
