  • Publication number: 20190279532
    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: 20190269523
    Abstract: A spinal fixation device includes a housing defining a chamber and a longitudinal axis, and an end plate assembly operatively coupled with the housing. The end plate assembly includes a first end plate configured to engage a vertebral body and first and second support assemblies operatively coupled to the first end plate. The first support assembly is selectively movable between a first position in which the first end plate is spaced apart from the housing and a second position in which the first end plate is adjacent the housing. The second support assembly is transitionable between a first state in which the first end plate has a first angular orientation and a second state in which the first end plate has a second angular orientation.

  • Patent number: 9931140
    Abstract: A multi-planar axial spinal rod connector includes a first portion, a second portion, and a connector assembly. The first portion defines a longitudinal axis and defines a first passage. The first passage is sized and configured to slidably receive a first spinal rod. The second portion defines a second longitudinal axis and defines a second passage. The second longitudinal axis is different from the first longitudinal axis. The second passage is sized and configured to slidably receive a second spinal rod. The connector assembly is configured to fix the first and second portions relative to one another such that the first and second longitudinal axes define an angle relative to one another.

  • Patent number: 9820779
    Abstract: A spinal stabilization system includes a connecting rod, a rod bending device, and a plurality of bone screws. The connecting rod includes an elongate round portion, an elongate head portion and a neck portion connecting the elongate round portion with the elongate head portion. The rod bending device includes an elongate body defining an aperture configured and dimensioned to receive the connecting rod therethrough in a single orientation. The bone screws include a housing portion and a screw shaft distally extending from the housing portion. The housing portion includes an inner housing and an outer housing slidably surrounding at least a portion of the inner housing. The inner housing defines a slot configured and dimensioned to releasably secure the elongate round portion of the connecting rod therein. The outer housing is movable relative to the inner housing between an unlocked state and a locked state.

  • Patent number: 9737351
    Abstract: A compressor/distractor system for operating on a spine is disclosed. The system includes two rod reducers which each advance a spinal rod into the shoulder portion of a pedicle screw. Each rod reducer includes an inner member, an outer member, and a pair of gripping members. Each outer member receives and advances the spinal rod into the pedicle screw. The outer member also includes a through slot which receives the proximal end of each of the pair of gripping members which may limit the longitudinal translation of the outer member with respect to the inner member. The compressor/distractor system may include a compressor/distractor device which has a compressing, a distracting, and a neutral configuration. A method for using the minimally invasive rod reducers with the compressor/distractor system to secure at least two pedicle screws in desired positions on a spinal rod is also disclosed.
