    Abstract: A collapsible and expandable prosthetic mitral valve includes a stent and a flange. The stent has an inflow end, an outflow end, and a first central longitudinal axis extending from the inflow end to the outflow end in an expanded condition of the prosthetic mitral valve. A valve assembly is disposed within the stent. The flange is formed of a braided mesh and has a body portion coupled to the stent and a flared portion adjacent the inflow end of the stent. A second central longitudinal axis extends through the flared portion in the expanded condition of the prosthetic mitral valve and is offset from the first central longitudinal axis.

  • Publication number: 20190053830
    Abstract: A spinal hook includes a hook member, an inner collet, and an outer portion. The hook member includes a head portion and a blade portion. The inner collet includes a base portion configured to rotatably engage the head portion and a pair of engaging portions defining a slot configured to receive a connecting rod therein. The outer portion is movable relative to the inner collet between a locked position in which the outer portion causes the pair of engaging portions to move toward each other and an unlocked position in which the outer portion causes the pair of engaging portions to be spread apart to facilitate insertion or removal of the connecting rod.

  • Patent number: 10198970
    Abstract: A spinal surgery modeling system includes a spine model and a spine movement device. The spinal surgery modeling system provides a three-dimensional hands-on model that can be configured to have any desired variation of spinal alignment of the spine model by hydraulic actuation of the spine movement device to simulate the biomechanical feel and behavior of a patient's spine. The spine model may include various vertebral body or disc conditions and allows a clinician to examine and/or adjust the model and observe the three-dimensional outcome of such adjustments.

  • Publication number: 20180250128
    Abstract: A prosthetic mitral valve includes a collapsible and expandable stent extending from an inflow end to an outflow end. A collapsible and expandable valve assembly is disposed within the stent. The valve assembly includes a plurality of anterior leaflets and one posterior leaflet. The posterior leaflet has a larger surface area than any of the anterior leaflets. When implanted in the native mitral valve annulus, the smaller size of the anterior leaflets and the corresponding smaller size of an anterior portion of the stent reduce the likelihood of interference with blood flowing through the native aortic valve, while also reducing the likelihood of ventricular fibrillation.

  • Publication number: 20170333084
    Abstract: A spinal stabilization device includes a rod receiving member, a collet, a plug, and a first bone screw. The rod receiving member defines a first throughhole, a collet recess aligned with the first throughhole, and a rod receiving slot offset from the first throughhole. The collet is insertable into the collet recess and defines an aperture, a plug recess aligned with the aperture, and a wall portion defining a rod securing slot configured to fix the spinal rod therein. The collet is transitionable between a first diameter, where the rod securement region defines a first diameter, and a second diameter, where the rod securement region defines a second diameter. The plug is insertable within the plug recess, and transitions the collet between the first and second diameters. The first bone screw includes a head portion and a threaded portion, and is insertable through the rod receiving member and the collet.
