  • Publication number: 20190038214
    Abstract: In one example, a sensor is configured to be implanted into a patient's body. The sensor has at least one sensing element, a measurement device in communication with the at least one sensing element, and an internal wireless communicator in communication with the measurement device. The at least one sensing element includes a resistor, and the measurement device includes a capacitor. The measurement device measures a discharge time of the capacitor through the resistor so as to generate a measurement value that is proportional to a value of an anatomical property of the anatomical body, such as strain, that is observed by the sensor. The internal wireless communicator wirelessly communicates the measurement value through skin of the patient to an external wireless communicator situated outside of the patient's body.

  • Patent number: 10039645
    Abstract: An orthopedic prosthesis assembly includes a first prosthetic component, a second prosthetic component, a retainer, and a fastener and allows the removal of the first prosthetic component without having to remove the second prosthetic component from an intramedullary canal of a patient's bone. The fastener is received in an aperture of the first prosthetic component and the retainer is configured to engage the aperture of the first prosthetic component such that a part of the fastener is secured within the aperture. A rod of the fastener is configured to advance along the longitudinal axis through the first prosthetic component into the second prosthetic component. The end of the rod of the fastener is threaded into a threaded bore defined in the second prosthetic component.

  • Patent number: 9144498
    Abstract: A modular orthopaedic implant system has first, second and third implant components. Two of the components have bores and the third component has a post. The third component can be assembled with either the first or second components with the post received in the respective bore of the other component. When assembled, the length of the post received within the bore of one of the components is greater than the length of the post received within the bore of the other component. The fatigue strength of the assembly with a greater length of the post received within the bore is greater, and this assembly can be used where such greater fatigue strength is needed and the other assembly can be used where a lesser fatigue strength is needed. Since the third component that is used in both assemblies may be the same, inventory may be reduced.

  • Patent number: 9138321
    Abstract: An implantable orthopaedic knee prosthesis assembly includes a femoral component, a stem component, a fastener, and a retention device. The femoral component is configured to be implanted into a distal end of a femur of a patient and includes a stem post having a proximal tapered bore, a distal passageway, and a threaded passageway connecting the proximal tapered bore and the distal passageway. The stem component is configured to taper fit to the femoral component and includes a bore formed therein extending proximally and a threaded aperture defined at a proximal end of the bore. The head of the fastener is configured to be received in the distal passageway, whereas the proximal end of the shaft of the fastener is configured to be positioned in the threaded aperture. The retention device is received in the threaded passageway and prevents the proximal end of the fastener from reentering the threaded passageway.

  • Patent number: 9101479
    Abstract: A method for joint line assembly of an orthopaedic prosthesis assembly includes inserting a tapered post of a first prosthetic component into a tapered bore of a second prosthetic component along a longitudinal axis to secure the first prosthetic component to the second prosthetic component. A shaft of a fastener is advanced along the longitudinal axis through a threaded passageway defined in the second prosthetic component and into the first prosthetic component. The threaded passageway has a greater diameter than a diameter of the shaft. The end of the shaft is threaded into a threaded aperture defined in the first prosthetic component.
