  • Patent number: 9668883
    Abstract: A trial kit for a hinged knee implant system is disclosed. The trial kit includes a tibial base plate trial, an adaptor and a tibial bearing insert trial. The adaptor and insert trial can be assembled and the assembly mounted on the tray trial by sliding the assembly in an anterior-posterior direction on the tray trial. The adaptor has a post with a cross-piece. The insert trial has openings and channels to receive the post and cross-piece. The openings are sized, shaped and oriented so that the cross-piece of the elongate post must be oriented in different directions to pass through the different openings.

  • Patent number: 9295483
    Abstract: A patella drill guide includes a base portion rotatably mounted on a bone-gripping component. A trial portion with a contoured articulation surface is above the base portion. The base portion and trial portion have aligned drill guide bores. The base portion and trial portion can be rotated together on the bone-gripping component to optimize the positions of the drill guide bores with respect to the patella surface, thereby optimizing the locations of the mounting pegs of the patella implant component on the patella to optimize the orientation of the patella implant component. The base and the bone-gripping component may be unitary so that the entire assembly rotates on the patella about the central longitudinal axis of the bone-gripping component.

  • Patent number: 9078676
    Abstract: A patella drilling system includes a clamp and a patella drill guide. The clamp includes an arm with a pointed tip that is received in a dimple on the surface of the patella drill guide and another arm with a bone-gripping member spaced from the tip. The clamp is used to hold the patella drill guide firmly against the resected posterior surface of the patella while the surgeon drills into the patella to form holes for mounting pegs on the implant. The clamp may allow the patella drill guide to be pivoted while clamped so that the orientations of the guide bores may be optimized. The system includes an optional cap that may be used on the pointed tip of the clamp to hold the implant firmly in place while the bone cement sets.

  • Patent number: 9011547
    Abstract: A knee prosthesis system for total knee replacement procedures includes a plurality of distinctly-sized femoral components, a plurality of distinctly-sized fixed tibial components, a plurality of distinctly-sized mobile tibial components, a plurality of fixed inserts, and a plurality of mobile inserts. Each of the mobile inserts is sized and shaped such that each may be optimally matched to one of the femoral components and may be used with any one of the mobile tibial components. Each of the fixed inserts is sized and shaped such that each may be optimally matched to one of the femoral components and may be used with any one of the fixed tibial components.

  • Patent number: 8998913
    Abstract: A patella resection assembly comprises a handle, slide member and two claw members. The slide member is movably mounted on the handle and includes two diverging arms. Inner edges of the diverging arms contact outer edges of the claw members so that distal movement of the slide member causes the claw members to move toward each other and close around a patella. The claw members and slide member have teeth for grasping the patella as the claw members move together. The claw members also have flat co-planar surfaces for guiding the path of a saw blade during resection of the patella.
