  • Publication number: 20210289666
    Abstract: Some embodiments are directed to a kit of parts that includes heat sink parts, each heat sink part having a contact area for contacting a surface of an electronic device. The heat sink parts are connected but are spaced apart to allow them to adjust and keep their contact areas contacting the surface of the electronic device when the surface is distorted, for example due to heating. A heat sink part includes at least two spaced apart heat sink elements which are connected.

  • Patent number: 11045325
    Abstract: An expansible intervertebral implant is disclosed, various embodiments of which comprise an elongated body along a longitudinal axis comprised between a proximal end and a distal end, a flexible arm mounted in the vicinity of the distal end of the longitudinal body and movable between: a folded-back position with the arm substantially parallel to the axis, and a deployed position with the arm not parallel to the axis and away from the body to expand said implant along an axis, by assuming the general shape of a circular arc, a means for deployment of said flexible arm for deploying the latter from the folded-back position to the deployed position, by the sliding of a proximal portion of said flexible arm with respect to the body inducing an increase in the space occupied by the implant, greater than the space of the implant in the folded-back position.

  • Patent number: 10968706
    Abstract: An assembly for producing a threaded connection includes first and second tubular components with an axis of revolution and each provided at one end with at least first, second, and third continuous threaded zones provided in succession on the same helix on the outer or inner peripheral surface of the component depending on whether the threaded end is male or female. The components are capable of cooperating together upon makeup. At least one of the first, second, or third threaded zones has a variable width thread profile and is self-locking. The ends respectively finish in a free terminal surface. Each of the ends is free of a specific abutment surface. At least one sealing surface is provided between each of the adjacent threaded zones in order to cooperate in a sealed interference fit with a sealing surface provided on the corresponding end when the connection is made up.

  • Publication number: 20200205995
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to intervertebral disc prostheses which may have an upper plate, a lower plate, and a mobile core, with the upper surface of the core being in contact with at least a part of the lower surface of the upper plate. In some configurations, limit stops reduce friction while limiting or preventing the movements of the core relative to the lower plate, in translation and in rotation, respectively, along an axis substantially parallel to the lower plate and about an axis substantially perpendicular to the lower plate. Instrumentation for insertion of the prostheses into intervertebral spaces is also described.

  • Publication number: 20200205992
    Abstract: Various embodiments of an intervertebral implant comprise a body extending longitudinally along a primary axis, a baseplate, a plurality of elongated arms having a vertebral support surface, the arms being articulated such that the implant has a folded-back position in which the arms are close to each other, and a deployed position in which the arms are moved away from each other, and expansion means between the folded-back and deployed positions, comprising at least two branches pivotably mounted relative to each other and attached to the elongated arms by guide means such that translation of the expansion means parallel to the primary axis causes pivoting of the branches and moves the arms away from each other.
