  • Patent number: 8157846
    Abstract: Locking mechanisms and methods of fixation, such as the fixation of a fixation device like a bone screw and of a rod to the spine. The locking mechanism includes a body, a rod seat and a set screw. The rod seat is configured to separate into two pieces when the rod exerts force on the top portion of the washer and the set screw limits movement of the washer toward the bottom of the locking mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20110196430
    Abstract: A novel locking mechanism including a body and intermediate element and a method for locking the relative positions of a rod and a screw. The intermediate element is adapted to receive a rod and a head of a screw and is located between the rod and the head of the screw. The intermediate element has a non-circular shape such that at least one large non-contact area exists when the intermediate element is in contact with the head of the screw and the locking mechanism is fully engaged. The body is adapted to maintain the orientation of the non-circular intermediate element with respect to the body. The body also has at least one structure defining at least one distinct temporary stopping point for the intermediate element above the final locking position.

  • Patent number: 7768695
    Abstract: A parametric device having a non-linear material (4) for generating an idler wave and a signal wave (16) in response to a pump wave (14), the pump, idler and signal waves being non-collinear, the device having a cavity (10, 11) resonant at the pump wavelength and means for varying the angle between the propagation directions of the pump and idler waves.

  • Publication number: 20100160980
    Abstract: A locking mechanism (100) and method of fixation, such as the fixation of a fixation device (104) like a bone screw and of a rod (106) to the spine. The locking mechanism (100) includes a body (102), an insert (108, 308), a rod seat (110, 310) and a set screw. The body (102) includes a bottom portion (114) configured to receive the fixation device (104) and the insert (108, 308) but prevents the insert (108, 308) and fixation device (104) from passing therethrough once the insert (108, 308) and fixation device (104) are engaged. The body (102) further includes a side portion (120) configured to receive the rod (106). Between the rod (106) and the insert (108, 308) is a rod seat (110, 310).

  • Publication number: 20090240284
    Abstract: A rod, such as that used for spinal stabilization, made of both metal material and elastomeric material. The rod may have a metal infrastructure, which may be non-cylindrical, to provide a desired stiffness for bending in at least one direction and may also have metal exterior surfaces for engaging metal components of spinal fixation locking mechanisms. In addition, the elastomeric material may only partially circumferentially encapsulate the metal material so that the metal material forms part of the surface of the rod.

  • Publication number: 20080040683
    Abstract: A graphical user interface includes a scrollbar located centrally between two panes displaying interactive content. Moving the scrollbar causes movement of the content in both panes to scroll. The panes include additional content regions (represented, for example, by an image or color) located near the scrollbar. Selecting one of the additional content regions, such as by holding a mouse cursor over it, causes additional content to be displayed. The additional content may include links and an additional scrollbar for scrolling within the additional content.
