  • Publication number: 20170196551
    Abstract: A suture guide may include a base, a tissue guard extending from the base, and two flanking posts affixed to the base on opposite sides of the tissue guard. The posts may extend from the base in parallel planes, and each of the posts may define a plurality of channels passing through its width. The channels may be so oriented that, for each post (a) the channels define suture needle guide paths in one or more planes, and (b) at least one channel is not perpendicular to a long axis of the first flanking post, so that it defines an oblique suture needle guide path. The tissue guard may be connected to the base by a connector so adjustable as to control spacing between the posts and the tissue guard.

  • Patent number: 8398661
    Abstract: A suture guide may include a base, a first tissue guard extending from the base, and two flanking posts affixed to the base on opposite sides of the tissue guard. The posts may extend from the base, and each of the posts may define a plurality of channels passing through its width. The channels may be so oriented that, for each post (a) the channels define suture needle guide paths in one or more planes, and (b) at least one channel passes through the first flanking post in a direction that is not parallel to a width axis W passing through the width of the first flanking post, so that it defines an oblique suture needle guide path. The first tissue guard may be connected to the base by a connector so adjustable as to control spacing between the posts and the first tissue guard.

  • Patent number: 7625409
    Abstract: A fixed-bearing ankle prosthesis may include tibial and talar components whose articulating surfaces directly contact one another. The tibial component defines medial and lateral concave condylar facets separated by a convex central portion. The talar component includes medial and lateral convex condyles separated by a concave central portion. The condyles each have a single radius of curvature in a medial-lateral plane such that each condyle has a circular-arc cross-section continuously extending from the respective medial or lateral edge of the talar component to the concave central portion. The medial-lateral radii of the condyles are smaller than corresponding radii of the condylar facets.

  • Patent number: 7615062
    Abstract: Suturing tissue methods may include positioning a suture guide so that its tissue guard overlies or supports the tissue and its flanking post flanks a first tissue side. A first needle and attached first suture may be advanced through a post guide path and then the tissue, so that the first suture's ends emerge from first and second tissue sides. A second needle and attached second suture may be advanced through a post guide path and then the tissue, forming a needle track, so that ends of the second suture emerge from the first and second sides of the tissue. The sutures may be detached from the needles, the first suture attached to the second suture end on the second tissue side, and the second suture retracted through the needle track, pulling the first suture through the needle track and disposing its end on the first tissue side.
