  • Publication number: 20180085165
    Abstract: A method of preplanning orthopedic surgery and computer program therefore. The method includes the steps of: importing an x-ray image into an electronic canvas; scaling the x-ray image to determine the pixel to distance ratio; creating on the canvas one or more moveable, rotatable trace overlays of bones or bone fragments visible in the x-ray; inserting onto the canvas one or more moveable, rotatable images of orthopedic implants; and rotating and moving the trace overlays and the images of orthopedic implants into positions depicting the planned surgical outcome.

  • Publication number: 20180018614
    Abstract: Embodiments of the technique disclosed include a computer-based system and method for creating schedules that matches total supply of clinicians with the projected demand in services as well as meet plurality of constraints that consists of scheduling rules and clinician availability/preferences of varying weighted values to ensure work-life balance and thereby avoid staff burnout. In some embodiments, the system predicts the demand in appointments and the capacity of clinicians based on past data, leading to greater accuracies for subsequent schedule creations.

  • Publication number: 20180008325
    Abstract: A medication impregnated bone cement (MIBC) coated intramedullary (IM) nail for fixation of a long bone fracture comprising an IM nail base and medication impregnated bone cement. The bone cement encapsulates at least a portion of the IM nail base and forms an interface between the adjacent surfaces of the IM nail base and the bone cement. The interface between the encapsulating bone cement and the encapsulated IM nail base being enhanced to increase the adhesion of the encapsulating bone cement to the encapsulated IM nail base. The increase in adhesion being sufficient to ensure that the encapsulating bone cement remains adhered to the encapsulated IM nail base when the medication impregnated bone cement coated intramedullary nail is removed from the long bone.

  • Patent number: 9820786
    Abstract: An orthopaedic implant knee hinge and surgical method for minimally invasive insertion of the orthopaedic implant knee hinge. The apparatus and method stabilizes the knee in patients after ligament surgery, conventional fixation of supracondylar and intracondylar fractures of the femur and/or tibial plateau and proximal tibia fractures. The knee hinge is inserted subcutaneously (but supra-muscularly) on one of both of the medial or lateral side of the knee.

  • Patent number: 9693205
    Abstract: An example method is provided in one example embodiment and may include configuring paging parameters for a group of one or more user equipment (UE) based, at least in part, on a group identifier (ID) for the group of one or more UE; communicating the paging parameters to each of the one or more UE of the group; and paging one or more idle mode UE of the group according to the paging parameters to transition the idle mode UE to a connected mode for receiving a group message. In some instances, configuring the paging parameters can include configuring a paging frame and paging occasion for the group of one or more UE based on the group ID; configuring extended paging cycle radio frames for the group of one or more UE; and/or configuring a paging group Radio Network Temporary Identifier for the group of one or more UE.

  • Publication number: 20160270830
    Abstract: The instant invention is a novel method and construct for temporary or definitive minimally invasive treatment of a broken humerus. The method includes the steps of tunneling an elongated (or short) plate having a contoured distal end subcutaneously in the subcutaneous fat layer substantially parallel to the fractured humerus; and attaching the ends of the plate to the fractured humerus. The plate remains disposed in the subcutaneous fat layer and away from, but parallel to the humerus once attached to the humerus.

  • Publication number: 20160157897
    Abstract: The instant invention is a novel method for stabilization of the posterior pelvis (iliosacral) when treating an unstable pelvic ring fracture. Cannulated screws are inserted through the posterior of the ilium through the sacroiliac joint and into the sacrum. The screws are used to affix the iliosacral joint while it heals. The screws are used in conjunction with a bone plate (through which the screws pass) to provide the construct/fixation with added strength and stability compared to iliosacral fixation using screws alone.

  • Patent number: 8900278
    Abstract: The instant invention is a novel method for definitive pelvic stabilization. The method uses the already established principles of anterior external fixation combined with internal hardware placed in a minimally invasive fashion. Pedicle screws are affixed to the ilia and a rigid, bowed fixation rod is connected between the pedicle screws. Preferably the pedicle screws are attached to the supra-acetabular area of each of the ilium of the pelvis and the fixation rod is bowed anteriorly away from the pelvis.
