  • Patent number: 9549826
    Abstract: A sigmoid notch resurfacing prosthesis for application to the sigmoid notch of the distal radius. The sigmoid notch prosthesis generally includes a saddle and a radius portion for attachment to the distal radius. The saddle may be formed from ultra high molecular weight polyethylene or another durable self-lubricating material. The saddle includes an at least partially concave contoured depression having rounded edges that is securable to the radius portion. The saddle may be secured by a sliding notch snap fit design. The prosthesis may be adapted for articulation with the natural head of the ulna or with an ulnar head prosthesis that has replaced the ulnar head.

  • Patent number: 6709459
    Abstract: A prosthesis for the radius bone in the arm of a patient includes a head shaped for engagement with the capitellum of a humerus bone and the radial notch of the ulna. It also has a curved stem that extends from the head and is tapered with a distally decreasing cross section for insertion into the medullary canal of the radius. A system for implanting the prosthesis requires a resection guide for placing the forearm of the patient in a precise anatomical orientation for resection of the radius bone. The resection guide includes a notched alignment rod attached to an adjustable flange and a reference flange for aligning the forearm for a cut of the radius bone perpendicular with the axis of rotation of the radius bone about the ulna, and for measuring the size of the resection and prosthesis.

  • Patent number: 6302915
    Abstract: An anatomical prosthesis for implantation after a resection of the distal ulna includes a head and a stem. The head is formed with a curved surface for articulation with the sigmoid notch of the distal radius. A bore is provided in the head to allow for attachment of the head to the stem. The head is further formed with suture holes for anchoring the head to the soft tissues such as the ulnar collateral capsule, the triangular fibrocartilage and the extensor carpi ulnaris subsheath that are exposed after resection of the distal ulna. The stem is elongated, having a proximal end for engagement with the intramedullary canal of the ulna, and a distal end for engagement with the bore formed in the head.

  • Patent number: 5405401
    Abstract: A joint prosthesis for replacing a joint between two elongated bones of the hand. A first member is provided with an elongated stem for reception in one of the elongated bones and includes a head remote from the stem, the head having a convex articulating surface and lateral articulating surfaces adjacent the convex surface and on each side thereof. A second member has a stem for reception in the other bone and a base remote from the stem, the base having a concave articulating surface and lateral articulating surfaces on each side thereof, the concave and lateral surfaces being adapted to engage and articulate with the respective convex and lateral articulating surfaces of the first member.
