  • Patent number: 10973645
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention include a convertible prosthesis that is capable of conversion from a humeral head replacement to a reverse reconstruction without any removal of parts integrated into the patient's bony anatomy (e.g. implant stems). A desired overall implant inclination angle may be achieved by matching various implant stems with various reverse inserts, thus permitting a resection surface to be matched with an implant stem selection while also permitting a desired overall implant inclination angle to be achieved through the selection of an appropriate insert.

  • Patent number: 10918397
    Abstract: An orthopedic driver is provided that includes an elongate tubular body and an indicator assembly. The indicator assembly has a housing that has at least one opening and a visual indicator disposed in the at least one opening. The visual indicator is configured to be coupled with a guide pin such that lateral movement of the elongate tubular body relative to the guide pin causes the visual indicator to move between a flush or recessed configuration within the housing and an extended configuration. In the extended configuration, the visual indicator extends outward of an outer surface of the housing. The flush or recessed configuration corresponds to alignment of the guide pin relative to the elongate tubular body and the extended configuration corresponds to misalignment of the guide pin relative to the elongate tubular body.

  • 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: 20200368031
    Abstract: A glenoid implant including a base plate and an articular component. The base plate can include a body and a support structure extending from a distal surface of the body. The body can include a plurality of openings. The articular component can be configured to removably couple to the base plate. The articular component can include a recessed portion configured to at least partially receive the body of the base plate. At least one engagement structure can protrude from a distal facing surface of the recessed portion. Each engagement structure can correspond to one of the plurality of openings in the body. A distal face of the articular component surrounding the recessed portion can be configured to abut the subchondral bone.
