  • Patent number: 10098676
    Abstract: A surgical implant which includes: a first anchoring portion comprising two first arms movable between an inserting position and an anchoring position, in which the first arms are spread apart so as to be anchored in a first bone; a second anchoring portion to be anchored in the second bone; and an intermediate portion connecting the first anchoring portion to the second anchoring portion. The intermediate portion comprises: a recess; and a first connecting portion and a second connecting portion that are remote from one another. Bringing the first connecting portion and second connecting portion closer together moves the first arms from the inserting position thereof to the anchoring position thereof.

  • Patent number: 9283007
    Abstract: In one embodiment the present invention is an implant suitable for implantation in bone, comprising a median zone extending along a longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end, the first end having a face extending generally perpendicular to the axis to form an abutment having a width; and a first fixation zone extending from the first end and the abutment, the first fixation zone including a pair of tabs formed of shape-memory material extending from a base portion of the tabs adjacent the abutment such that the abutment extends further from the axis in a radial direction than the base portion of the tabs, wherein the pair of tabs are separable from one another by shape-memory action at body temperature.

  • Patent number: 9161789
    Abstract: A method for fusing a joint, which includes the step of inserting a first anchoring zone of an arthrodesis device being in a first closed position into a first opening within a first bone. The first anchoring zone includes a first pair of legs. Each leg is capable of transitioning between the first closed position and a first open position for internally gripping the first opening. Also, included in the method is the step of inserting a second anchoring zone of the arthrodesis device being in a second closed position into a second opening within a second bone. The second anchoring zone includes a second pair of legs. Each leg is capable of transitioning between the second closed position and a second open position for internally gripping the second opening.

  • Patent number: 8475456
    Abstract: An intramedullar osteosynthetic device includes a body with an elongated shape and a flat cross-section having, in succession, from one of its ends, a first fixation zone cooperating with one of the bone parts to be immobilized, a median zone suitable for withstanding the shear and bending stresses, and a second fixation zone in the other bone part to be immobilized. Each of the fixation zones is made from a material suitable for enabling their deformation by thermal action (tepid memory) or mechanical action (superelasticity), to permit an introduction into the bone parts without pulpar approach, followed by a fixation in the bone parts, while avoiding any rotational movement, withstanding the tensile stresses, and maintaining a compressive force. At least one of the fixation zones has two tabs or fins and which are separable under the effect of the deformation.
