|20140277553||Ulnar Head Replacement Implant System - Embodiments of the invention may provide a stem and a head and a liner that can be assembled together to form an implant, such as may be used in repair of the distal ulnoradial joint. A given head and liner and stem may be assembled to each other in more than one configuration, providing more than one possible external shape for a given set of stem and head and liner. The head may be non-symmetric about its midplane and may be open at both ends. A kit may contain more than one head assemblable to a given stem with an intermediate liner, with the various heads providing various different external shapes of the device.||09-18-2014|

|20130304226||PYROCARBON COATED BONE IMPLANTS - Methods for forming bone implants for the repair of the ends of bones at orthopedic joints, which implants have a Young's modulus close to that of human cortical bone. Substrates of dense isotropic graphite are coated overall with hard, microporous, isotropic pyrocarbon of specific character such that it can be polished to serve as an articular surface and can also securely receive an anchoring first metal layer through PVD. The first layer has a character such that, by thermal spraying a second biocompatible metal layer thereupon, fusion occurs and thereby anchors an outermost layer that is formed with a network of randomly interconnected pores and a surface character of peaks and valleys designed to promote enhanced appositional growth of cortical bone at the interface therewith.||11-14-2013|
|20130012947||DOUBLE CANNULATED OSTEOTOME - A cannulated osteotome for cutting a bone surface in which two circular depressions have been previously reamed comprising a cutting blade in the form of a continuous loop having two arcuate end surfaces and two straight lateral surfaces that depends from a body that includes two cannulae in the form of two parallel passageways that extend transversely through the body. Stops extend beyond the opposite arcuate ends of the cutting blade which determine the depth to which the cutting blade can be inserted into the surface of bone from which the circular depressions have been reamed. There is described a method of inserting an implant having a substantially flat undersurface from which two pegs protrude into a surface of a bone using such an osteotome.||01-10-2013|

|20120179208||BONE PLATE SYSTEM FOR REPAIR OF PROXIMAL HUMERAL FRACTURE - A bone plate system for repair of a proximal humeral head fracture, which includes a fixation plate having a main body and a depending alignment flange, a plurality of elongated compression screws to extend through the intact humeral head into the cortical bone of the fractured portion and a cover plate. With the fixation plate in place, fastened to the humerus, the cover plate is in turn fastened to the fixation plate and provides a defined amount of clearance in a region adjacent the heads of the compression screws to allow measured back-out of the screws upon settling of the fractured bone portion at the fracture site.||07-12-2012|
