  • Publication number: 20190247061
    Abstract: An orthopaedic surgical instrument system including a reamer assembly is disclosed. The reamer assembly includes a reamer head having a plurality of cutting teeth and a mounting bracket configured to be coupled to a femoral broach, which is sized to be positioned in a proximal opening of a femoral canal of a patient's femur. When the mounting bracket is coupled to the femoral broach, the reamer head is offset medially from the lateral edge of the femoral broach to resect a medial calcar of the patient femur.

  • Patent number: 7819880
    Abstract: A surgical instrument has an elongate guide member and a reciprocable member. The elongate guide member provides a protected path of travel for an implant from outside the body to a position near a damaged tissue site. The reciprocable member is movable along the elongate guide member to push the implant along its path of travel. The reciprocable member can include an implant carrier. The implant can be an orthopaedic implant for repair or regeneration of soft tissue at a damaged joint site. The implant can be larger than the transverse dimension of the elongate guide member and folded or rolled to fit within the elongate guide member. Use of this instrument protects the implant from damage as it is delivered to the damaged joint site. The invention also includes a surgical method for delivering an implant to a damaged tissue site.

  • Patent number: 7563266
    Abstract: A slide instrument has a longitudinal slide portion and spaced walls defining longitudinal channels. The slide instrument may be sized so that it can be inserted through standard arthroscopic portals to position the distal end of the slide instrument at a damaged tissue site. The slide instrument may be used to deliver an implant to the damaged tissue site. The implant has edges that fit within the longitudinal channels so that the implant can be moved along the slide portion to the distal end of the slide to deliver the implant to the damaged tissue site. The shape of the slide instrument protects the implant from damage as the implant is delivered from outside the patient's body to the damaged tissue site.

  • Patent number: 7238208
    Abstract: A kit for assembly of a modular joint prosthesis (10) includes at least two shank/body elements (22/20) sized for insertion into the shank of the bone and at least two head members (48) sized to replace one bearing surface of the joint. Each shank/body element (22/20) has a collar (58) that has a shallow width and a circular plan view and that is formed to overhang a resected level of the bone. The collar (58) has a male taper on its side wall (64). Each head member (48) has a first geometric axis (52) therethrough and defines a part spherical cavity (49) with a skirt (66) extending about the cavity (49). The skirt (66) provides a female taper for receiving and providing a mechanical connection with the male taper on the side wall (64) of each collar (58). A second axis extends (55) through the skirt (66). The first axis (52) and second axis (55) may be coincident or offset from one another.

  • Patent number: 7214246
    Abstract: A ball and socket joint prosthesis for use in arthroplasty is provided. The prosthesis includes a body for implantation at least partially within the medullary canal of a long bone. The long bone defines trabeculae in the proximal cancellous bone and lamellae in the cortical bone. The body includes a proximal portion thereof and a distal portion. The proximal portion has a medial periphery and includes surface features on a substantial portion of its proximal portion. The surface features are positioned to optimally transfer load from the prosthesis to the long bone.

  • Patent number: 7160328
    Abstract: A medical procedure includes providing a prosthesis which includes (i) a body portion having a rear surface and a bearing surface, and (ii) an anchor peg including a shaft extending from the rear surface of the body portion, wherein the anchor peg includes a plurality of outwardly extending fins secured to the shaft, and further wherein the plurality of outwardly extending fins each possesses a first diameter. The medical procedure further includes creating an anchor hole in a natural bone, the anchor hole possessing a second diameter which is less than the first diameter. In addition, the method procedure includes positioning the anchor peg within the anchor hole so that each of the plurality of outwardly extending fins deforms so as to possess (i) a concave side which faces an open end of the anchor hole, and (ii) a convex side that faces a closed end of the anchor hole.
