  • Patent number: 10441325
    Abstract: A minimally invasive fixation system and method for providing access to a surgical site. The fixation system may include a holding assembly, the holding assembling preferably including a lateral implant holder which may be attached to a pedicle screw and a sleeve positioned in connection with the lateral implant holder to prevent the lateral implant holder from separating from the pedicle screw. The sleeve may further include a tissue protection portion to keep the tissue out of the surgical site. A holding sleeve may be operably connected to the holding assembly and pedicle screw and may be used to insert the pedicle screw into the body. Multiple constructs may be inserted into the body so that a portion of the holding assembly extends from the body and provides access to and visualization of the surgical site. A rod holder may also be used to insert a rod into the head of the screw. The rod may be held by the rod holder so that the rod may be angulated as the rod is inserted into the screw heads.

  • Patent number: 10360188
    Abstract: A dynamic integration framework allows property data to be dynamically influenced by external data sources. In one example, a client services component receives, from a client application, a request to create or edit an object. The client services component retrieves, from a content repository, an initial property set applicable to the object. An external data service specifies an initial property modification set based on property dependencies between controlling property values and dependent properties. The external data service provides the property modifications to the client services component with an initial data identifier that indicates a state of the property modifications. The client services component merges the initial property modifications and the initial data identifier with the initial property set.
