  • Patent number: 11304815
    Abstract: This set comprises glenoid components that each include a body defining, on two of its opposite faces, respectively, a joint surface, intended to cooperate with a humeral head, and a bearing surface bearing against the socket of a shoulder blade. In this set, the glenoid components are provided in several different sizes, respectively defined by the dimensions of the joint surface of their body. At least two glenoid components of which the bearing surfaces respectively have different dimensional geometries are provided so as to allow the surgeon to improve the durability of the mechanical cooperation between the implanted component and the operated socket.

  • Patent number: 11207078
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include an orthopedic milling machine for preparing a glenoid bone. The milling machine uses a hub and a sleeve. The hub includes reliefs arranged to cut or mill the bone and the sleeve couples to the hub to transfer rotational motion to the hub. The hub has an axial bore sized to receive an orthopedic guide pin. The hub also has a lateral passage slot that allows the hub to move laterally towards the guide pin in order to place the guide pin within the axial bore.

  • Patent number: 11160661
    Abstract: This shoulder prosthesis glenoid component (2) has on one of its faces an articulation surface (SA) adapted to cooperate with a humeral head and having, on an opposite face (SG) adapted to be immobilized on the glenoid cavity (G) of a shoulder, a keel (4) for anchoring it in the glenoid cavity (G). This keel (4) comprises a body (5) that extends from the opposite face (SG). The keel (4) comprises at least one fin (6) projecting from the body (5) 2 which runs over at least a part of the perimeter of the body (5).

  • Publication number: 20200345518
    Abstract: Methods of implanting a prosthesis to repair a joint include displacing a first bone from the joint formed by an intersection between the first bone and a second bone. An end portion of the first bone is resected to define a resected end. A concavity is formed into the resected end using a shaping tool. The bone is compacted to form a support layer lining the concavity. The prosthesis is implanted in the concavity against the support layer without attaching the prosthesis to the support layer. The joint is reformed with the prosthesis such that the prosthesis remains unattached to the support layer and the first and second bones articulate about the prosthesis.

  • Patent number: 8080063
    Abstract: A glenoid component for a shoulder prosthesis adapted to be mounted in a glenoid cavity of a shoulder. An elongated keel adapted to engage with the glenoid cavity is attached to the internal surface of the base. The keel extends along a longitudinal axis of the base. The keel includes various configurations of transverse members extending away from the longitudinal axis. The surgeon selects a glenoid component with a keel and transverse member configuration that is anatomically optimized for the patient. Glenoid components properly optimized provide mechanical strength and stability superior to prior art devices. The glenoid components disclosed herein are particularly well suited for use in an anatomical total shoulder prosthesis, but may are also suited to partial shoulder prostheses and reverse shoulder prostheses.
