  • Patent number: 10363068
    Abstract: The invention provides improved instruments and related methods for percutaneously delivering a revision implant to a surgical site in a spine of a patient having an existing implant installed therein. In one aspect, a percutaneous delivery instrument is provided with an inner shaft with a threaded portion at its distal end to engage a percutaneous revision implant, an outer sleeve with a hollow cavity, hinges, and features to engage the percutaneous revision implant at its distal end, and a translator in which the outer sleeve is disposed. The percutaneous delivery instrument may be employed to deliver and install a percutaneous revision implant to extend the existing implant such that it spans additional portions of the spine.

  • Patent number: 9730736
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods include an elongate connecting element including a body extending along a longitudinal axis between a first end and an opposite second end. The connecting element includes a first end portion at its first end and a second end portion at its second end. The connecting element includes a length between the first and second ends sized to extend between and be engaged to first and second anchors engageable to bony portions of the spinal column. The first and second end portions are positioned on opposite sides of the first and second anchors and project outwardly from the body of the connecting element to capture the first and second anchors between the first and second end portions.
