Abstract

A bone re-angling device may be used in performing an osteotomy. The re-angling device may be a generally wedge-shaped body. The re-angling device maybe coupled to the bone using a fixation member.

Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    The invention generally relates to devices, systems, and methods for realignment of bone, e.g. during bony osteotomy.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    There are many occasions in orthopedic surgery when a bone is angled improperly due to congenital deformity, trauma, failed surgeries, and uneven arthritic wear in joints. A surgical operation called an osteotomy is done to correct this misalignment. In an osteotomy the bone is cut and then realigned to correct the improper angle.
  • [0003]
    In an osteotomy procedure, the surgeon removes a wedge of bone near a damaged joint. The procedure shifts weight from an area where there is damaged cartilage to an area where there either more cartilage or healthier cartilage. In this manner, weight is spread more evenly across the joint cartilage.
  • [0004]
    Osteotomy is commonly performed on the knee or hip joint. Osteotomy may help correct knee deformities such as bowleg or knock-knee deformities. Osteotomy may also be used to correct damage due to arthritis. For example, osteotomy may be performed in patients too young for a total joint replacement.
  • [0005]
    It is desirable to provide a new device which both simplifies the re-angling operations and enables correction to be more precise.

    I. Re-Angling Device with Separate Fixation Plate
  • [0045]
    FIG. 3 shows a device 10 for re-angling or realigning a bone region according to the present invention. This device 10 is sized and configured to be inserted into a gap formed in the bone region to accommodate placement of the device 10. The device 10 is sized and configured to re-angle or realign the bone region toward a desired anatomic position, e.g., during an osteotomy procedure.
  • [0046]
    In a first illustrated embodiment, the re-angling device 12 is generally wedge shaped, and is sized and configured to fit into a wedge-shaped gap cut into the bone region. The size and configuration of the re-angling device 12 can vary, as long as it functionally serves to re-angle or realign the bone region in a desired manner.
  • [0047]
    In the embodiment shown in FIG. 3, the re-angling device 12 includes a generally rectangular base 16, a pair of wedge surfaces 14 which extend from laterally opposed edges of the base 16 and meet at a point opposite the base 16, and a pair of end surfaces 18 which extend from laterally opposed edges of the base 16 and engage one edge of each wedge surface 14.
  • [0048]
    In order to insert the device 12 into the bone 6, an appropriately sized wedge of bone is removed from the application site, creating a wedge-shaped gap 8, as shown in FIG. 4A. The application site is chosen by the physician based on the anatomy of the patient. The gap 8 is created using any appropriate surgical device, such as an appropriately sized and configured surgical saw. The device 12 is then inserted into the gap 8 in the bone 6 as shown in FIG. 4B. The device 12 may then be secured to the bone 6. The device 12 may be secured to the bone by any known method used in the art, for example, and not limited to bone cement, a temporary plate, and a permanent plate.
  • [0049]
    In one method of fixation, as shown in FIG. 4C, the device 12 is secured in the gap by placing a fixation plate 20 over the re-angling device 12. The fixation plate 20 is then attached to the bone 6 using a fixation member 24. In some circumstances, it may be desirable to drill pilot holes in either the fixation plate 20 or the bone 6 prior to inserting the fixation member 24. The fixation member 24 preferably extends through the fixation plate 20 and into the bone 6 to secure the re-angling device 12 to the bone 6.
  • [0050]
    In the embodiment shown in FIG. 4C, the fixation plate 20 takes the form of a single fixation plate 22 that extends across the entire length of the re-angling device 12.
  • [0051]
    It is also contemplated that the fixation plate 20 could take the form of multiple fixation plates 122, each of which extends across only a portion of the re-angling device, as shown in FIG. 4D.
  • [0052]
    In the representative embodiments shown in FIGS. 4C and 4D the fixation members 24 comprises screws 26, such as surgical screws. However, it should be understood that the fixation members may be chosen from a variety of fixation members known in the art. For example, the fixation member 24 could also be a bone staple 126, as shown in FIG. 4E or a barbed bone staple 226 as shown in FIG. 4F.
  • [0053]
    As shown in FIG. 4E, it may be desirable to provide the fixation plate 20 with at least one preformed aperture 34 through which a fixation member 24 may extend to secure the fixation plate 20 to the bone 6. The aperture 34 may be threaded or not threaded depending on the type of fixation member 24 to be used.

    The size and shape of the device 10, fixation plate 20, and fixation members 24 are chosen by the physician based on each individual patient's anatomy and the type of bone in which the device is to be used.
  • [0055]
    The device 10, the fixation plate 20, and the fixation members 24 may be made of various materials commonly used in the prosthetic arts including, but not limited to, metals, ceramics, tantalum, polyethylene, biologic type polymers, hydroxyapetite, rubber, titanium, titanium alloys, tantalum, chrome cobalt, surgical steel, or any other total joint replacement metal and/or ceramic, bony in-growth surface, sintered glass, artificial bone, any porous metal coat, metal meshes and trabeculations, metal screens, uncemented metal or ceramic surface, other bio-compatible materials, or any combination thereof.
  • [0056]
    It may be desirable to provide the device 10, the fixation plate 20, and the fixation members 24 with surfaces, or a portion of a surface, that allow for bony ingrowth. The surfaces of the device 10, fixation plate 20, and fixation members 24 could be covered with biological bone substitute or biological stimulators for example, but not limited to hydroxygretite, calcium phosphate, calcium sulfate, or one of the bone morphogenic stimulators. Alternatively, the surfaces of device 10, the fixation plate 20, and the fixation members 24 could be covered with surface texturing to induce bony in-growth. The surface texturing can comprise, e.g., through holes, and/or various surface patterns, and/or various surface textures, and/or pores, or combinations thereof. The device 10 can be coated or wrapped or surfaced treated to provide the surface texturing, or it can be formed from a material that itself inherently possesses a surface conducing to bony in-growth, such as a porous mesh, hydroxyapetite, or other porous surface.
  • [0057]
    It may further be desirably for the device 10 to be covered with various coatings such as antimicrobial, antithrombogenic, and osteoinductive agents, or a combination thereof.
