  • Publication number: 20210393867
    Abstract: A surgical drain system for use during and following surgery is provided. A collection reservoir is placed in fluid communication with the body of a user through a collection port. A pump creates a vacuum pressure to urge fluid into the collection reservoir. Fluid exits the collection reservoir through a drain port. A drain mechanism allows air to come into the collection reservoir through an air intake aperture and collected fluid to leave the reservoir simultaneously. The drain system can be worn beneath clothes.

  • Publication number: 20210259849
    Abstract: An expandable inter-body fusion device is presented. The expandable inter-body fusion device can have a first plate, a second plate, and an insert positioned substantially therebetween the first plate and the second plate. The first plate, the second plate, and the insert define an interior cavity. Moving the insert longitudinally with respect to the first and second plates increases or decreases the distance of the first plate with respect to the second plate, effectively expanding the inter-body fusion device and increasing the volume of the interior cavity.

  • Patent number: 10709575
    Abstract: An expandable assembly for insertion into an intervertebral space is presented. The assembly, in particular aspects, includes an elongate body comprising an upper portion and a lower portion. The assembly may include an expander that is sized and shaped for insertion between the upper portion and lower portion, thereby selectively expanding the upper portion away from the lower portion. The elongate body may also include one or more bone graft windows.

  • Patent number: 10405894
    Abstract: A cervical minimal access fusion system is presented. The system has a plate with a longitudinal axis and defining at least two bone screw bores therethrough and an inter-vertebral cage configured to be positioned between two adjacent cervical vertebrae. A method for a cervical minimal access fusion system is also presented. In one aspect, the method comprises the steps of accessing the facet joints of two adjacent cervical vertebrae, distracting the joints so as to increase the space between the two adjacent cervical vertebrae, placing an implant or structural bone graft in the space between the two adjacent cervical vertebrae to maintain the distraction, and compressing the two lateral masses to induce lordosis around the facet joint.
