Minimally-Invasive Spinal Deformity Correction Device for Children and Adolescents
Project ID: D2009-90 Invention Description: Patented technology combines a hybrid rod-cable that loops around rotatory pedicle screws anchored to the proximal-most vertebrae within the spinal deformity to correct scoliosis. The device may be placed in any region of the spine, but is typically located in the thoracic or lumbar regions. Growth and el...
Stabilized Spinal Fixation Hook
Project ID: D2013-70 Invention Description and Novelty: Spinal hook achieves greater reliability for implantation, stabilization and poly-axial head movement, as well as reducing anatomical mismatch with the lamina, transverse process and pedicle before being locked by a rod and fastener. Value proposition: · Hook is shaped to engage multip...
Anchoring pedicle screw
Project ID: D2009-36 Invention Description and Novelty: Removable anchoring pedicle screw that includes an implant mounting screw, an anchor screw, and a nose piece. The anchor screw can be rotated relative to the implant mounting screw such that the nose piece engages an expandable anchor. The expandable anchor is disposed between the implant moun...
Lateral Fixation Assembly for Spinal Column
Project ID: D2008-46Invention novelty: Lateral fixation assembly that allows for vertical translation of the assembly for custom fit based upon individual anatomy. Value proposition: · If desired, invention may be used together with corpectomy cage to provide additional support to the affected spinal region;· Method of ali...
Novel Pedicle Screw Assembly for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Project ID: D2009-12/D2010-34 Invention novelty: Improved structure for a retractable pedicle screw assembly. Pedicle screw assembly utilizes a self-drilling tip that terminates in a cutting tip that can remove bone material from a vertebra and includes an internally drilled threaded bore into which the cutting tip is withdrawn once pedicle screw ...
