  • Publication number: 20210106372
    Abstract: A screw guide assembly includes a guide body extending along a central longitudinal axis. The guide body has a proximal end portion having an attachment face extending perpendicular to the longitudinal axis and a distal end portion having a screw support member extending away from the longitudinal axis. The screw support member is configured to allow for the insertion of a screw at an angle oblique relative to the longitudinal axis. A wire guide is removably inserted into the screw support member. A method of inserting a screw using the assembly is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10864081
    Abstract: An orthopedic implant system includes a wedge implant. The implant includes a body having an upper surface extending generally in a first plane. The upper surface has a first plurality of longitudinal grooves and a second plurality of transverse grooves extending therealong. Portions of the upper surface extend between adjacent longitudinal grooves and transverse grooves form individual peaks. A lower surface extends generally in a second plane, parallel to the first plane. The lower surface has a third plurality of longitudinal grooves and a fourth plurality of transverse grooves extending therealong. Portions of the lower surface extend between adjacent longitudinal grooves and transverse grooves form individual peaks.

  • Publication number: 20190343984
    Abstract: A wedge has an outer perimeter and includes a top surface extending generally in a first plane and having a top osteointegration surface disposed thereon. A bottom surface extends in a second plane that extends obliquely with respect to the first plane. The first plane intersects the second plane outside the outer perimeter of the implant and includes a bottom osteointegration surface disposed thereon. A plurality of side surfaces extends between the top surface and the bottom surface and defines the outer perimeter, wherein at least a portion of the plurality of side surfaces is devoid of any osteointegration surface.

  • Publication number: 20190328928
    Abstract: Disclosed is a medical device having a substrate having an exposed surface and a texture over at least part of the exposed surface. The texture includes a plurality of nanofeatures that inhibit bacterial adhesion on the surface and that also inhibit bacterial growth on the surface and have a size range between about 0.01 nanometers and about 1,000 nanometers. The texture can include a plurality of nanofeatures applied thereto such that the texture has a first particle size at a first location, a second particle size at a second location, and a gradient of particle size from the first particle size to the second particle size between the first location and the second location.

  • Patent number: 10201433
    Abstract: In described embodiments, an implant has an outer perimeter. The implant includes a top surface extending generally in a first plane and a bottom surface extending in a second plane. The second plane extends obliquely with respect to the first plane. The first plane intersects the second plane outside the outer perimeter of the implant. A medial surface extends between the top surface and the bottom surface proximate to the intersection of the first plane and the second plane. A lateral surface extends between the top surface and the bottom surface distal from the intersection of the first plane and the second plane. An anterior surface extends a first distance between the top surface and the bottom surface between the medial surface and the lateral surface. A posterior surface extends a second distance between the top surface and the bottom surface between the medial surface and the lateral surface. The second distance is greater than the first distance.
