  • Patent number: 9474686
    Abstract: A package and method of packaging a surgical implant or surgical instrument are described. The package comprises a container and a holder having a recess arranged to receive a portion of a surgical implant or instrument, or a component coupled to the surgical implant or instrument. The holder is arranged to be at least partially received within the container. The holder has a first configuration in which the mouth of the recess is arranged to partially surround a portion of an implant or instrument, or a component coupled to the surgical implant or instrument, such that the recess grips the implant or instrument in position spaced apart from the container when the holder is at least partially received in the container.

  • Patent number: 9393121
    Abstract: A prosthesis comprising: an inner layer formed from a polyaryletherketone; a first outer layer adjacent to said inner layer formed from a porous polyaryletherketone, at least some of said pores having located therein material to promote osteointegration; and a second outer layer adjacent to said first outer layer formed from a porous polyaryletherketone, a portion of said pores being free of material to promote osteointegration. The invention also relates to a method of manufacture of the prosthesis. In an alternative arrangement, the prosthesis comprises: an inner layer formed from a polyaryletherketone; a first outer layer adjacent to said inner layer formed from a porous polyaryletherketone, at least some of said pores having located therein material to promote osteointegration having a crystallinity of from about 60% to about 90%; and a second outer layer adjacent to said first outer layer formed from a porous polyaryletherketone.

  • Publication number: 20140296929
    Abstract: An instrument (2) for use in manipulating an implant component, which has a face with two spaced apart edges, comprises a housing (4) and first and second arms (72,74) each having a finger (76,78) which can engage the implant component at respective edges of the face, the arms being mounted for sliding movement relative to the housing in which the fingers on the arms move along a common axis. A gear mechanism (70,124), by which the first and second arms are linked to one another, ensures that sliding movement of the first arm in a first direction relative to the housing is accompanied by equal sliding movement of the second arm in a second direction which is opposite to the first direction. A shaft (122) is mounted in the housing so that it can slide along a shaft axis which is perpendicular to the axis along which the fingers slide, the shaft has a bed (46) at its end for engaging the face of the implant component.

  • Patent number: 8500744
    Abstract: A cap used during the insertion of an acetabular cup prosthesis. The cap includes impaction plate having an upperside and an underside. The impaction plate includes a plurality of separate sectors mutually connected at a connection point on the impaction plate by flanges. Each sector includes interlocking elements which in use enable the impaction plate to be connected to an introduction tool. The cap also includes at least one lug extending downwardly from the underside of each sector. The lug is located at the portion of the underside of the impaction plate which will in use enable the lug to be interconnected with a corresponding recess on an internal wall, an external wall or a rim of a prosthesis.
