  • Patent number: 11386990
    Abstract: Method, system, and program products are disclosed herein for creating a 3D model based on a plurality of received 2D medical images. Once the 2D images are received, a determination is made regarding any potential processing steps required to put the images into a standard view. Once the images are processed, a plurality of points are identified that are associated with a portion of an anatomical landmark. Various historical 2D images are then identified based on a comparison between the plurality of points. Using the historical information, a 3D image is generated of an anatomical feature of a patient.

  • Publication number: 20220160430
    Abstract: A method of generating a custom three-dimensional model of a bone is disclosed. A 2D image of the bone is obtained and an orientation and scale of the 2D image are aligned to a pre-determined coordinate system. Based on the 2D image, a representative bone is identified from a library of representative bones that are aligned to the pre-determined coordinate system. Based on the 2D image, an ideal view of a 3D model of the representative bone is selected. Modifications may be made to the 3D model by using additional representative bones from the library. A custom three-dimensional model of the bone is thereby generated.

  • Publication number: 20220125515
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and surgical computing devices are illustrated that improve surgical planning using machine learning. With this technology, a machine learning model is trained based on historical case log data sets associated with patients that have undergone a surgical procedure. The machine learning model is applied to current patient data for a current patient to generate a predictor equation. The current patient data comprises anatomy data for an anatomy of the current patient. The predictor equation is optimized to generate a size, position, and orientation of an implant, and resections required to achieve the position and orientation of the implant with respect to the anatomy of the current patient, as part of a surgical plan for the current patient.

  • Publication number: 20220117669
    Abstract: An augmented reality system and method for assisting surgical staff during an arthroplasty procedure includes a camera system configured to capture images of a surgical scene and a processor configured to determine from the images location and orientation information about one or more patient anatomical features and to maintain a three-dimensional model of these anatomical features within the surgical scene. The system models the field-of-view of augmented reality headsets worn by surgical staff, and maps this to the anatomical model, allowing the system to overlay relevant information to the user about particular anatomical features in the surgical plan.

  • Publication number: 20220039864
    Abstract: Methods and system for characterizing ligament properties using elastography are disclosed. An ultrasound system capable of performing shear wave elasticity imaging and/or supersonic shear imaging may retrieve one or more images from a proposed surgical site. The one or more images may be provided to a surgical planning system that identifies one or more properties of ligaments proximate to the surgical site. Musculoskeletal simulations may be performed using the identified properties to preoperatively identify a surgical plan. Preoperative identification of a surgical plan may enable a surgeon to select from more fine-tuning options for a joint replacement than conventional systems.

  • Patent number: 11172966
    Abstract: An intramedullary bone transport nail configured for axial bone segment transport by an externally applied magnetic field includes a nail body defining an internal chamber; locking portions for locking respective ends of the nail body in first and second bone fragments of a long bone, respectively; and a transport carriage assembly that is arranged in an axially movable manner within the internal chamber of the nail body and has an aperture for accommodating a transport bone segment screw for fixing a middle bone segment of the long bone to the bone transport carriage. The nail body defines an elongated longitudinal opening to allow axial motion of the transport bone segment screw as the transport carriage assembly moves axially by rotation of a threaded rod affixed to a magnetic driver. Rotation of the threaded rod is achieved by application of torque to the magnetic driver by a rotating external magnetic field.

  • Publication number: 20210322148
    Abstract: A method of placing a ligament graft in a surgical procedure is described. A surgical system receives kinematic information related to a range of motion of a knee joint and registers one or more surfaces of a bony anatomy of the knee joint. The surgical system further generates a three-dimensional model of the knee joint. The surgical system determines a surgical plan including parameters of a graft tunnel based on the kinematic information and the three-dimensional model. A graft tunnel planning system is also described. A plurality of tracking markers are affixed to the patient's bones and a tracking unit captures their location through a range of motion of the patient's knee joint. A point probe captures the geometry of a bony surface of the patient. A computing module receives the location data and geometry data, and determines a surgical plan including parameters of a graft tunnel.
