Application: Tibial tray inserter (Patent ID: US20240041615A1)

The patent filed by Globus Medical Inc. pertains to tibial implants, instruments, systems, and methods for implanting a tibial tray during knee arthroplasty. The inserter instrument described includes a main body with fixed posterior tabs, a moveable anterior tab body with an anterior tab, and a rotatable shaft for precise positioning of the tibial tray during implantation. The method involves providing a tibial tray with specific features, such as posterior notches and an anterior notch, and using the inserter to position the tray within the tibia securely.

The claims in the patent detail the steps involved in performing a knee arthroplasty using the described inserter instrument. The method includes specific features like the kidney-bean shape of the tibial tray, the presence of a keel with fins, and the use of plugs in the inserter to prevent contact with the tray. Additionally, the method outlines the process of positioning the tibial tray using the inserter instrument, which involves translating the anterior tab body into a locked position for precise placement. The patent also covers aspects like the threaded opening in the anterior tab body, the design of the foot of the inserter, and the use of a triple lead threaded hole to increase translation speed. Overall, the patent provides a detailed guide for implanting tibial implants with improved accuracy and efficiency.
