Implants for reverse dynamization to accelerate bone healing

A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11883080B1) discloses a system for reverse dynamization, involving an implant designed to be attached to bone. The implant features movable components that can transition from a semi-rigid configuration allowing for micro-motion of the bone to a static condition preventing further movement. These movable components, known as reverse dynamization components, are made of a two-part curing material housed in separate compartments that, when mixed, cure and stiffen, providing stability to the bone.

Furthermore, the patent describes an expandable implant with a central drive screw mechanism that allows for height adjustment. This implant includes a reverse dynamization component, such as a washer, along the central drive screw, which initially provides flexibility for micro-motion before stiffening to fix the upper and lower endplates in place. The reverse dynamization component's axial width can vary over time, affecting the total distance between the front and rear ramps of the implant, ultimately influencing the height adjustment. Additionally, the reverse dynamization component can be made of a cross-linking polymer or a work-hardened spring, which stiffens under repeated strain or deformation, contributing to the overall stability of the implant.
