  • Publication number: 20200390562
    Abstract: A glenoid component for coupling to a scapula of a subject includes a body. The body includes an articulation surface adapted to articulate with a humeral component, and the body further includes a distal surface adapted to face the glenoid of the scapula. The distal surface includes a base surface portion adapted to face a first portion of the glenoid. The distal surface further includes an augmented surface portion adapted to face a second portion of the glenoid. The base surface portion and the augmented surface portion define an obtuse angle therebetween.

  • Publication number: 20200008947
    Abstract: A humeral anchor assembly is provided that includes a humeral anchor and at least one screw. The humeral anchor is configured to form a part of or support a part of a shoulder prosthesis. The humeral anchor has a distal portion configured to be anchored in a proximal region of a humerus and a proximal portion. The proximal portion includes a proximal face configured to engage an articular component within a periphery thereof. The proximal portion also includes at least one aperture disposed adjacent to the periphery. The at least one screw is disposed through the at least one aperture. The screw has a first end portion engaged with the proximal portion of the anchor and a second end portion disposed in or through cortical bone of the humerus.

  • Patent number: 10080664
    Abstract: Modular humeral implants and methods of use. A humeral implant can include a stem portion, a metaphyseal portion, a locking element, and an intermediate portion. The intermediate portion can include at least one spacer. Each spacer can include a proximal engagement feature, a distal engagement feature, a lumen extending longitudinally through the spacer, and a pin slidable within the lumen of the spacer. Distal movement of a locking element in the metaphyseal portion can translate the pin of each spacer to secure the metaphyseal portion, the intermediate portion, and the stem portion in a locked configuration.
