  • Patent number: 8721726
    Abstract: A cup intended to interact with a prosthetic humeral head has a generally circular shape and positioning and anchoring devices for embedding the cup in an anatomical glenoid cavity in such a way that a load-bearing and sliding surface of the cup is integrated into the continuity of the anatomical cavity so as to be perfectly congruent with the humeral head.

  • Patent number: 8361157
    Abstract: A shoulder prosthesis assembly includes a metaglenoid element (7) having a plate (13) with a central tubular bushing (14) and members for anchoring it in the glenoid cavity. The assembly also includes a glenoid sphere (9) that fits over the metaglenoid element which has an axial screw that is (35) screwed into the bushing. The glenoid sphere has a member to facilitate installation thereof on the metaglenoid element. The member may include a pin (46) adapted to slide in the tubular bushing (14) and in an axial channel of the screw, so that the glenoid sphere (9) can be screwed into place without any risk of damaging the thread of the screw or the tapping of the bushing.

  • Patent number: 6953478
    Abstract: The invention concerns a shoulder prosthesis assembly comprising a meta-glenoid element (7) formed by a plate (13) provided with a central tubular block (14) an anchoring members in the glenoid cavity (3), and a glenoid sphere (9) designed to top the metaglenoid element and provided with an axial screw (35) screwed into said pin; the glenoid sphere has an articulated surface (11) designed to co-operate with a cup of an associated humeral prosthesis (2); said assembly comprises means (16, 45, 46; 51, 50, 49) guiding the glenoid sphere adapted to facilitate its being fixed on the meta-glenoid element; said means comprise a pin (46) adapted to be slotted into the tubular block (14) and into an axial passage of the screw (35); the glenoid sphere (9) is thus guided by being slid on the pin (46) until the screw (35) is inserted precisely into the axis of the tubular block (14), wherein it can be screwed without any risk of damaging the thread on the screw and the internal thread of the block.

  • Publication number: 20030014119
    Abstract: The subject of the invention is a shoulder prosthesis (5, 32) comprising a humerus rod (9, 39) intended to be introduced into the medullary cavity of a fractured humerus (2), and a roughly hemispherical head (12) which can be secured to the humerus rod and is designed to become lodged in a glene of the shoulder, characterized in that the humerus head (12) can be fixed to the humerus rod in any radial plane with respect to the axis of the humerus rod (9, 39) after the rod (9, 39) has been fixed into the humerus and the shoulder muscles have been fixed to the head.
