  • Patent number: 10413334
    Abstract: Disclosed are fixation devices for repairing spondylolysis. The fixation device can include a first anchor, a second anchor, and a bridge that couples the first and second anchors together. In use, the first anchor can be implanted on one side of a pars fracture, the second anchor can be implanted on the other side of the pars fracture, and the bridge can span across the pars fracture. In some embodiments, the fixation device can be compressible to promote healing of the fracture.

  • Publication number: 20190215338
    Abstract: A multi-domain operational system is provided. The system includes a data collection engine configured and operable to collect operational data from one or more collection resources within time constraints imposed by operational requirements. The system further includes a business rules engine configured and operable to execute a plurality of rules each of which comprise a plurality of conditions grouped in a sequence by a set of logical connectors. The plurality of rules are associated with a mission task. The system also includes a security engine configured to facilitate information sharing across multiple security domains based on one or more security protocols. The system further includes a mission manager software component configured and operable to manage operation of at least the data collection engine, the business rules engine and the security engine using a common information layer.

  • Publication number: 20190213285
    Abstract: A method for information fusion in multi-domain operational environment is provided. The method includes receiving a first plurality of detection tags containing domain agnostic information related to one or more targets of interest. Target detection statistics contained in the first plurality of detection tags are combined to provide a fused estimate of a probability of a correct identification of a target of the one or more targets of interest. Target geolocation statistics contained in the first plurality of detection tags are combined to provide a fused estimate of a location of the one or more targets of interest. One or more fused detection tag containing at least the combined target detection statistics and the combined target geolocation statistics are generated.

  • Publication number: 20190213263
    Abstract: A method for automated operational services across multiple data domains includes receiving requirement information related to one or more targets of interest. Information related to the one or more targets of interest is collected from one or more data sources across multiple data domains based on the received requirement information. A determination is made if the collected information meets the received requirements related to the one or more targets of interest. A classification tag containing domain agnostic information related to the one or more targets of interest is generated, responsive to determining that the collected information meets the received requirements.

  • Patent number: 10166056
    Abstract: Disclosed is a fixation device for sacroiliac joint stabilization. The fixation device includes an elongated body comprising a bone anchor at a distal end. An axially moveable proximal anchor is carried by the proximal end of the fixation device. In one embodiment, the device is inserted through the ilium of the pelvis and the bone anchor is rotated into position within the sacrum. The proximal anchor is distally advanced with respect to the bone anchor to provide compression across the sacroiliac joint.

  • Publication number: 20170151065
    Abstract: An adjustable spinal fusion intervertebral implant is provided that can comprise upper and lower body portions, and proximal and distal wedges. An actuator shaft disposed intermediate the upper and lower body portions can be actuated to cause proximal and distal wedges to converge towards each other. The implant comprises one or more channels that interact with a bone graft inserter to direct the flow of material through the implant. The bone graft inserter and methods of use are also provided.

  • Patent number: 9522070
    Abstract: An adjustable spinal fusion intervertebral implant including upper and lower body portions each having proximal and distal surfaces at proximal and distal ends thereof. The implant can include a proximal wedge member disposed at the proximal ends of the respective ones of the upper and lower body portions, and a distal wedge member disposed at the distal ends of the respective ones of the upper and lower body portions. First and second linkages can connect the upper and lower body portions. Rotation of an actuator shaft can cause the distal and proximal wedge members to be drawn together such that longitudinal movement of the distal wedge member against the distal surfaces and the longitudinal movement of the proximal wedge member against the proximal surfaces causes separation of the upper and lower body portions.

  • Publication number: 20140257489
    Abstract: A dilation introducer for orthopedic surgery is provided for minimally invasive access for insertion of an intervertebral implant. The dilation introducer may be used to provide an access position through Kambin's triangle from a posterolateral approach. A first dilator tube with a first longitudinal axis is provided. A second dilator tube may be introduced over the first, advanced along a second longitudinal axis parallel to but offset from the first. A third dilator tube may be introduced over the second, advanced along a third longitudinal axis parallel to but offset from both the first and the second. An access cannula may be introduced over the third dilator tube. With the first, second, and third dilator tubes removed, surgical instruments may pass through the access cannula to operate on an intervertebral disc and/or insert an intervertebral implant. The access cannula may have a substantially rectangular cross-section.
