  • Patent number: 10405899
    Abstract: Devices, methods and systems for remedying or preventing fractures of the bone are disclosed. The devices, and corresponding methods and systems, may include first and second members each having a proximal end, a distal end and a middle portion and an outer surface. The first member may be configured to be positioned at least partially within the femoral neck of the femur. The second member may be configured to be oriented at an oblique angle relative to the first member and mechanically engaged with the first member through an interlocking connection between the distal end of the second member and the middle portion or the distal end of the first member.

  • Patent number: 9579130
    Abstract: The subject disclosure are directed to systems, apparatuses, devices and methods for vertebral and spinal correction. In some embodiments, an expansible implant is provided which may be inserted between two vertebrae, for instance, for maintenance and/or restoration of the distance/space between vertebrae. The implant may include first and second opposed plates that are intended to move away from one another, and which engage portions of vertebrae via a recess provided for on a bearing surface of the plates. The implant may additionally include at least first and second opposed end members, where at least one of the end members includes an aperture configured for receiving at least a portion of a retaining element adapted for retaining the implant in an expanded configuration once the implant is expanded. Methods of treatment and methods of use of such implants for the alleviation of back pain (for example) are also provided herein.

  • Patent number: 8986386
    Abstract: The subject disclosure is directed to systems, apparatuses, devices and methods for vertebral and spinal correction. In some embodiments, an expandable implant is provided which may be inserted inside the vertebral body and/or between two vertebrae, for instance, for maintenance and/or restoration of a space therein or there between. In certain embodiments, the implant includes a mechanical resistance that prevents the expandable implant from contracting once it has been expanded. Methods of treatment and methods of use of such implants for the alleviation of back pain (for example) are also provided herein.

  • Patent number: 7316684
    Abstract: A multiaxial connection osteosynthesis system for the spine having a bone anchor, a connector and a connecting member. The bone anchor may be implanted into a vertebral body with a connector being attached to a head of the bone anchor. The connector includes a seat for receiving the connecting member. As the connecting member is locked into position it causes walls of the connector to inwardly deform and lock the head of the bone anchor relative to the connector.

  • Patent number: 7090679
    Abstract: This invention relates to a spinal osteosynthesis assembly comprising the head of an anchoring member consisting of at least one arm and a tool for fixing said head to a spinal osteosynthesis system. The inventive assembly is characterized in that the tool can hold the head by creating at least one lateral support on at least one lateral edge of the arm and an additional support on the head in the opposite direction of the lateral support.

  • Publication number: 20050043002
    Abstract: The invention described herein provides a method and apparatus that allows direct digital to IF/RF conversion using pulse-shaping. The method facilitates obtaining a flat or near flat output spectrum after digital to analog conversion with a minimal loss in signal energy. As opposed to pulse-shortening, where the DAC output pulse and consequently the energy per sample are reduced to a fraction a<1 of the maximum, the pulse-shaping does not shorten the DAC pulse. For each sample, pulse-shaping first stores the energy delivered by DAC and then releases the stored energy to the output during a short period of time aT. This way little signal energy is lost even for very small values of a. With pulse-shaping, the duration aT of the output pulse contributes to the spectral flatness in a way similar to that pulse-shortening, but has the additional benefit that the shape of the output pulse contributes significantly to a flat spectrum.

  • Patent number: 6585737
    Abstract: The invention concerns a spinal osteosynthesis system comprising a rod, a vertebral member including two branches capable of receiving the rod between them, a collar for preventing the branches from being spaced, and a lock for clamping the rod, the lock being freely rotatable on the collar. Either one of the collar or the lock is capable of receiving the other of the flange or the lock for mounting the lock on the collar.
