  • Publication number: 20200008817
    Abstract: Implants for the fusion or fixation of two bone segments are described. For example, the implants can be used for the fusion or fixation of the sacroiliac joint. The implants can include fenestrations, have a rectilinear overall cross-sectional area, and have a curvature. Some implants can also be used to rescue failed implants.

  • Publication number: 20190343641
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to implants and tools for the fixation or fusion of joints or bone segments. These tools include tissue dilators and protectors. Other tools include broaches used to shape bores in bone. The tools can also include a system for removing an implant from bone. Implants can include assemblies of one or more implant structures that make possible the achievement of diverse interventions involving the fusion and/or stabilization of lumbar and sacral vertebra in a non-invasive manner, with minimal incision, and without the necessitating the removing the intervertebral disc. Implants for fusing both sacroiliac joints of a patient include a long implant that extends across both sacroiliac joints.

  • Publication number: 20180104071
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate generally to implant placement into bone. More specifically, embodiments of the invention relate to implant placement across the sacro-iliac joint. Placement can be facilitated using various CT imaging views that allow the implants to be placed in bone associated with articular cartilage.

  • Publication number: 20140277463
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods for fusing both sacroiliac joints of a patient using a long implant are provided. The method can include inserting a guide pin through the first ilium and across the first SI-Joint, through the sacrum and above the S1 foramen, across the second SI-Joint, and through the second ilium; forming a first rectilinear cavity through the first ilium and the first SI-Joint; forming a second rectilinear cavity through the second ilium and the second SI-Joint, wherein the first rectilinear cavity and the second rectilinear cavity are aligned; and inserting an implant through the first cavity, across the first SI-Joint, through the sacrum, across the second SI-Joint, and through the second cavity.
