  • Patent number: 11039889
    Abstract: A system and method for developing customized apparatus, such as guides, for use in one or more surgical procedures is disclosed. The system and method incorporates a patient's unique anatomical features or morphology, which may be derived from capturing MRI data or CT data, to fabricate at least one custom apparatus or guide. According to a preferred embodiment, the customized apparatus comprises at least one patient-specific surface and or contour, which may be derived from MRI or CT data. Apparatus may be matched in duplicate and oriented around the patient's own anatomy, and may further provide any desired axial alignments or surgical instrument insertional trajectories. In an alternate embodiment, the apparatus may further be aligned and/or matched and/or nested with at least one other apparatus during the surgical procedure.

  • Publication number: 20200397491
    Abstract: The present disclosure includes fixation devices, such as an orthopedic screw or implant, that comprises one or more porous elements or fenestrations to aid in osteo-integration of the fixation device. The fixation device may be additively manufactured using biocompatible materials such that the solid and porous aspects of the screw are fused together into a single construct. In yet another aspect, the fixation device comprises at least a portion or section incorporating a porous structure, which enables bony ingrowth through the porous section/portion of the screw, and thereby facilitates biocompatibility and improve mechanical characteristics. Methods for using the fixation device are also described herein.

  • Patent number: 10839658
    Abstract: A system and method of protecting individuals from ionizing energy is provided. The system can determine a location of an individual with respect to a source of ionizing energy. Before the source emits ionizing energy, the system can determine patterns of ionizing energy expected to be generated by an expected emission from the source. The system can then determine if an individual is within a danger zone in which the individual is expected to receive a dose of ionizing energy above a predetermined amount. The system may also determine if an individual is outside of an optimal zone in which the individual is expected to receive less than a predetermined dose of ionizing energy without being unnecessarily distant from a working area. The system can provide a warning when an individual is within the danger or inefficient zones. Optionally, the system can prevent the source from emitting ionizing energy when an individual is within the danger zone.

  • Patent number: 10580268
    Abstract: A system and method of protecting individuals from ionizing energy is provided. The system can determine and monitor the location of an individual, relative to a source of ionizing energy. The system can determine patterns of ionizing energy expected to be generated by an expected emission from the source. The system can then determine if an individual is within a “danger” zone in which the individual is expected to receive a dose of ionizing energy above an acceptable or prescribed amount. The system may also determine if an individual is outside of an optimal zone in which the individual is expected to receive less than a predetermined dose of ionizing energy without being unnecessarily distant from a working area. The system can provide a warning or initiate other actions when an individual is within a danger zone or an inefficient zone.

  • Patent number: 10159475
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a surgical device, such as a surgical implant, which may be used in several types of procedures. More specifically, the present disclosure relates to implants for use in an anterior, posterior, posterior lateral or direct lateral approach to the disc space. The surgical device may be manipulated in various manners to accommodate delivery through a minimally invasive portal in one configuration and adjusted to a second configuration once placed in the intervertebral space. A delivery system for placing the surgical device in a body is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9615938
    Abstract: Various surgical devices and methods for facilitating distraction of adjacent vertebrae and/or insertion of an intervertebral implant material therebetween are disclosed. The devices include an elongated barrel having a cannula. A distal end of the barrel is configured to engage the adjacent vertebrae. Slots may be formed on at least a portion of the barrel such that at least the distal end of the barrel may be expanded to distract vertebrae. In one embodiment, an inner member is reciprocally positioned within the barrel.
