  • Patent number: 10500061
    Abstract: An adjustable spinal implant includes a fixed segment that slidably supports a locking segment and pivotally supports an upper segment and a lower segment relative to one another. The locking segment translates within a channel defined by the fixed segment between locked and unlocked positions. In the locked position, the upper and lower segments are fixed relative to one another and to the fixed segment. In the unlocked position, the upper and lower segments are pivotal relative to one another and to the fixed segment. The adjustable spinal implant includes a locking mechanism including a locking screw to translate the locking segment between locked and unlocked positions.

  • Patent number: 10441430
    Abstract: A spinal implant has proximal and distal regions, and includes upper and lower bodies. A proximal adjustment assembly is disposed between the upper and lower bodies in the proximal region of the spinal implant and is adjustably coupled to the upper and lower bodies, and a distal adjustment assembly is disposed between the upper and lower bodies in the distal region of the spinal implant and is adjustably coupled to the upper and lower bodies. The proximal and distal adjustment assemblies are independently movable with respect to each other, both concurrently and alternately, to change a vertical height of at least one of the proximal or distal regions of the spinal implant. A set screw is removably disposed within the proximal region of the spinal implant to lock the vertical height of the proximal and distal regions of the spinal implant.

  • Patent number: 10426630
    Abstract: A spinal implant configured for positioning within a space between adjacent vertebral bodies includes first and second bone screws and a body. The body includes a back surface having first and second openings for receiving the first and second screws. The first and second openings are configured for orientation towards opposing vertebral bodies. The body further includes first and second side surfaces extending from opposing ends of the back surface and first and second end surfaces extending from respective first and second side surfaces, wherein the ends of the first and second end surfaces meet and define an atraumatic nose. A first angle is formed between the first side surface and the first end surface that is different than a second angle that is formed between the second side surface and the first end surface. A method using same is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190274845
    Abstract: A driving instrument for adjusting a spinal implant includes an outer shaft having a distal end configured to actuate a proximal adjustment assembly of a spinal implant, and an inner shaft having a distal end configured to actuate a distal adjustment assembly of the spinal implant. The inner shaft is disposed within the outer shaft, with a proximal end of the inner shaft extending proximally from the outer shaft. The proximal end is configured to be rotated such that rotation of the inner shaft results in simultaneous rotation of the inner and outer shafts, with rotation of the outer shaft ceasing at a first value of resistance associated with the proximal adjustment assembly and rotation of the inner shaft ceasing at a second value of resistance associated with the distal adjustment assembly such that cessation of rotation of the inner shaft is independent from cessation of rotation of the outer shaft.

  • Publication number: 20190269527
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an intervertebral trial includes a front surface, a top surface, a bottom surface, a first side surface and a second side surface that collectively define an internal space. The internal space includes at least one marker structure attached to at least one of the top surface, the bottom surface, the first side surface and the second side surface. The at least one marker structure indicates a dimension of the intervertebral trial. Additionally, the at least one marker structure is spatially representative of the dimension when measured relative to one of the front surface, the top surface, the bottom surface, the first side surface or the second side surface.

  • Publication number: 20170357661
    Abstract: Described is a system that may search for content items in response to a voice-based natural language query. The system may provide search results for content associated with various types of user actions such as sending or receiving a document, sharing a content, printing a document, etc. For example, the system may provide search results to a query such as “Show me the last spreadsheet I sent to Bill,” or “Find all emails from Bill in April.” In addition, the system may search for content associated with a particular application. For example, the user may provide a search query including “Open my ‘NewApp’ documents.” Accordingly, one or more aspects of the system may provide an intuitive search mechanism for content by allowing a user to provide natural language search queries.

  • Patent number: 9808352
    Abstract: An expandable spinal implant configured for positioning within a space between adjacent vertebral bodies includes an upper body, a lower body, a ratchet mechanism, and a plurality of bone screws. The upper body and lower body are pivotably affixed at a first end and are capable of movement relative to each other. The ratchet mechanism is slidably disposed on one of the upper and lower body and is capable of engaging the opposite one of the upper and lower body thereby permitting movement of the upper and lower body relative to each other in a first direction, but not in a second direction. An insertion instrument capable of being attached to the expandable spinal instrument and a method of performing spinal surgery is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9760559
    Abstract: Systems and processes for predictive text input are provided. In one example process, a text input can be received. The text input can be associated with an input context. A frequency of occurrence of an m-gram with respect to a subset of a corpus can be determined using a language model. The subset can be associated with a context. A weighting factor can be determined based on a degree of similarity between the input context and the context. A weighted probability of a predicted text given the text input can be determined based on the frequency of occurrence of the m-gram and the weighting factor. The m-gram can include at least one word in the text input and at least one word in the predicted text.

  • Patent number: 9572680
    Abstract: A spinal implant includes a body, plate, and bone screws. The body includes a first wall having second and third walls joined thereto to define legs. In an embodiment, the body and plate are of unitary construction. In alternative embodiments, the body is formed from a first material and is configured for positioning between vertebral bodies. In other embodiments, the body is separate from the plate. The plate has a main portion and a flange. The main portion has a first screw hole oriented towards the first vertebral body at an oblique angle relative to the horizontal axis of the body. The flange has a second screw hole oriented towards the second vertebral body and substantially parallel to the horizontal axis. The flange is coupled to the main portion and extends past the main portion. Each bone screw is insertable through a screw hole of the plate for attachment to bone. A kit including a body, bone screws, and a plurality of different plates is also provided.
