  • Patent number: 8298272
    Abstract: The present application is directed to self-locking surgical fasteners. The fastener generally includes a shaft section, a head section, and one or more locking members. The locking members may be located within the head section. A first portion of the locking members may extend beyond an outer surface of the head section, and a second portion of the locking members may extend into a hollow interior of the head section. A tool used to insert the fastener into the patient engages a receiver portion of the fastener. As the insertion tool engages the receiver, the tool may contact and exert a force on the locking member such that the first portion of the locking member may be retracted within the head section. Upon disengaging the insertion tool from the receiver, the locking member may return to the position extending outward beyond the outer surface of the head section.

  • Patent number: 8100975
    Abstract: Vertebral implants for spacing apart vertebral members. The implants may include a spacer with a first side and a second side that contact the vertebral members. A sidewall may extend between the first and second sides. Two or more mounts are positioned along the sidewall. A flange may be connected to the spacer at the mounts. The flange extends beyond one or both of the first and second sides to position the spacer relative to the vertebral members. In some embodiments, the spacer further includes one or more insertion features that facilitate insertion of the spacer between the vertebral members.

  • Patent number: 8083800
    Abstract: An implant for insertion between vertebral members may include a first member with a first contact surface to contact the first vertebral member, and a second member with a second contact surface to contact the second vertebral member. A material may be secured to and extend between each of the first and second members. An interior space may be formed between the first and second members and the material. An inflatable member may be positioned within the interior space and may be inflatable upon the introduction of a substance into inflatable member. The inflatable member may be inflatable between a first size to space the first and second members a first distance apart and an enlarged second size to space the first and second members a second greater distance apart.

  • Patent number: 7935148
    Abstract: Methods and devices for connecting an insertion device to an implant. The insertion device includes a body having first and second ends. The first end may be configured to connect with the implant. The first end may be selectively positionable between orientations to provide for the connection. Methods of positioning the implant within the patient generally include connecting the insertion device to the implant. The insertion device can then be manipulating to position the implant within the patient. The insertion device is removed from the implant once positioned, or may be reconnected at another location to further position the implant.

  • Patent number: 7862618
    Abstract: A vertebral implant for insertion into a patient includes first and second end members that include recesses for engaging a spacer member and a distractor. The end plates include a bone contact surface and an oppositely facing surface. A peripheral surface extends around a perimeter of the end members. The recesses may extend inward from the oppositely facing surfaces. Further, the recesses may extend inward from the peripheral surfaces. The recesses for engaging the spacer member and distractor may be separate from each other or may intersect one another. A spacer may engage the end plates to establish a desired vertebral spacing. The spacer may be positioned between the implants after a desired distraction is obtained with a distractor that engages the end plates.
