  • Publication number: 20220142784
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing a prosthesis for a fractured long bone of a patient, the method including the steps of: A) providing data representative of the fractured long bone in a patient; B) based on said data, designing the prosthesis specifically to the patient, the prosthesis including a stem part that is configured to secure fragment(s) of the fractured long bone at chosen securing position(s) that will apply chosen mechanical stress onto the bone fragments and reduce the risk of osteonecrosis of the bone fragments.

  • Patent number: 11266503
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method for manufacturing a prosthesis (11) for a fractured long bone of a patient, the method comprising the steps of: A) providing data representative of the fractured long bone, the fractured long bone comprising a diaphyseal fragment (2) comprising a medullary cavity (8); B) based on said data, designing the prosthesis specifically to the patient, the prosthesis comprising a stem part (12) configured to be inserted into the medullary cavity, step B) comprising: a sub-step of choosing, specifically to the patient, a contact zone (40) of the medullary cavity onto which a respective chosen mechanical stress is planned to be applied by the stem part, and a sub-step of designing the stem part so that the stem part may be inserted into the medullary cavity and thus apply the chosen mechanical stress to said contact zone; and C) manufacturing the prosthesis designed at step B).

  • Publication number: 20210259844
    Abstract: A patient specific shoulder guide is provided that includes a plurality of peripheral members coupled with a peripheral body. The peripheral members have a patient specific contact surface. An open space (e.g., a single open space) is or can be provided radially between a central channel and an inner periphery of the peripheral body. The open space(s) can extend from a side of a spoke to another side of the same or a different spoke. The spoke can be a single spoke in some embodiments. The single open space can extend more than 120 degrees between circumferential ends of the open space.

  • Publication number: 20210220151
    Abstract: Various apparatus and methods for implanting glenoid prostheses are disclosed. In various embodiments, a method for performing shoulder surgery can include guiding a guide pin into the glenoid surface along a reaming axis. A partial reaming guide can be placed in contact with the glenoid surface over the guide pin. A reamer can be guided over the guide pin to ream the glenoid surface. The reamer can be further advanced over the guide pin until the reamer contacts the partial reaming guide, whereby such contact limits reaming to only a portion of the glenoid surface.
