Application: Screw implants for bone fusion (Patent ID: US20230371993A1)

The patent filed by Globus Medical Inc. describes systems, apparatuses, and methods for bone fusion, specifically focusing on a fixation screw assembly designed for fusion procedures such as the sacroiliac joint. The assembly includes a bone screw with a head and shank, along with a flexible washer that can be attached around the head of the bone screw. The washer allows for polyaxial movement relative to the bone screw, preventing back out when implanted in a bone. The method involves providing the fixation screw assembly, making an incision, inserting a guide sleeve, and then driving the assembly into the patient's bone.

The claims associated with the patent detail various aspects of the fixation screw assembly and the method for fusing a sacroiliac joint. These include features like the washer having teeth for direct engagement with the bone, biomaterial windows in the bone screw shaft, a dual inner diameter with shallow and deep threads, and the ability of the washer to be angled, rotated, or swiveled in multiple directions. The method also involves using a cannulated bone screw, a 3D printed bone screw, and ensuring engagement surfaces like teeth are tapered inward to recess into the bone. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to bone fusion using a specialized fixation screw assembly with innovative design features.
