A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240032948A1) outlines a surgical method involving the insertion of a guide pin into a bone, followed by securing a guide arm to the guide pin and inserting a protector member into the guide arm. The method further includes inserting a target pin through at least two bones, drilling a hole over the target pin, and threading a target member into the hole to secure the bones. The patent details various aspects of the method, such as the use of a spherical component in the guide pin and the housing element in the guide arm for secure coupling.

Additionally, the patent describes the alignment and adjustment processes involved in the surgical method, including the insertion of an implant holder and bone plate to align with the bones. The method also involves rotating the guide arm to adjust the position of the bone plate in different planes relative to the guide arm. The patent emphasizes the importance of positioning the bone plate to accommodate fixation components without interfering with the target pin or threaded member. Overall, the patent provides a detailed guide for a surgical method that ensures secure bone fixation while allowing for precise alignment and adjustment during the procedure.
