  • Publication number: 20170340369
    Abstract: The present invention is a method and device for the correction and reduction of bone deformities, such as metatarsus primus adductus, using a plate body with winged buttresses and dorsal loop. The method and device can be affixed to a bone without any drilling or violating of the bone and can use a tethering technique which does not require drilling into the second metatarsal, nor does it require the placement of a prominent suture knot/button device medially along the first metatarsal.

  • Publication number: 20170333101
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods for correcting hallux varus joint deformity in a foot. The method can include forming a first hole in a first metatarsal of the foot from a medial side to a lateral side of the first metatarsal. A second hole can be formed in a proximal phalanx of a hallux that extends from a medial side to a lateral side of the proximal phalanx. The method includes passing a suture through the first hole, along a lateral side of a first metatarsal phalangeal joint, and through the second hole. The suture can be tensioned between the first and second holes to reduce the hallux to a rectus position relative to the first metatarsal. The suture can be secured within the first and second holes with a first interference screw inserted within the first hole and a second interference screw inserted within the second hole.

  • Patent number: 9693812
    Abstract: Described herein are methods and devices for the correction and reduction of bone deformities, such as metatarsus primus adductus, using a tethering technique which does not require drilling into the stable bone. In some embodiments, a bone plate has an elongate plate body and wings extending laterally from the plate body. The wings may be configured to generally follow the circumferential contours of the bone when placed on the bone in use. The bone plate can further include means for positioning cerclage material on the bone plate such that the cerclage material extends circumferentially over the wings rather than on the bone, thereby reducing the total contact area between the cerclage material and the bone.
