  • Publication number: 20200146835
    Abstract: An implant system comprises an implant plate adapted to be positioned on a surface of a resected bone. The implant plate has a plurality of openings. A plurality of independently positionable pegs attach the implant plate to the bone. Each peg has a longitudinal axis and comprises: a peg body and a retaining device. The peg body is inserted into a peg hole in the bone. The peg body has a transverse dimension in a direction normal to the longitudinal axis, the transverse dimension larger than the openings of the plate. The retaining device is separate from the peg body, and is configured to attach to the peg body, with at least a first portion of the retaining device positioned above an upper surface of the implant plate, and a connecting portion of the retaining device extending through one of the openings of the implant plate.

  • Publication number: 20200113712
    Abstract: A method of ankle replacement includes forming an anterior cut in a bone and forming a stem hole in a distal end of the bone. The stem hole is formed using a plurality of broaches positioned against the distal end of the bone through the anterior cut. A first portion and a second portion of a stem implant are inserted into the stem hole through the anterior cut in the bone. The first portion is coupled to the second portion using a coupling device inserted through the anterior cut in the bone. The stem implant is impacted into the stem hole using an offset impactor.

  • Publication number: 20200015867
    Abstract: A prosthesis suited for orthopedic implantation comprising a modular intramedullary rod that provides intramedullary guidance and that supports an artificial joint surface that can articulate with another artificial joint surface in various ways. Intramedullary guidance systems and methods introduce some and/or all surgical tools and ankle prostheses components through the tibia, using minimal invasive exposure. The systems and methods align the talus and tibia for the installation of one or more ankle prostheses components, and also maintain that alignment during the installation using intramedullary guidance.

  • Publication number: 20190254688
    Abstract: A position adjustment device having a tool holder is locked to at least two pins projecting from respective anterior facing locations near a distal end of a tibia of a patient. The position adjustment device is adjusted. The position adjustment device is locked with the tool holder at first coordinates in the proximal-distal and medial-lateral directions. The distal end of the tibia is resectioned with a tool positioned on the tool holder, while the tool holder is in the first coordinates in the proximal-distal and medial-lateral directions. The tool is removed from the tool holder. A tibia trial is placed on the resectioned tibia using the tool holder, while the tool holder is in the first coordinates in the proximal-distal and medial-lateral directions. The tibia trial has a size and shape of a tibial tray of an ankle replacement system.
