|20140074245||SHOULDER IMPLANT - Apparatus and method for a shoulder implant, for example, for the glenohumeral joint. Optionally, The implant is expandable and deflatable during implantation. Optionally the implant is sized for the gelnoid fossa. In an exemplary embodiment of the invention, the selection and/or implantation of the implant include adapting the implant by size and function to a particular patient's need.||03-13-2014|
|20130331946||EXPANDABLE JOINT IMPLANT - An expandable implantable device sized for occupying space in a cavity formed between small bones in a human hand or foot. Comprising a first smooth surface on which a first small bone may slide. May include an opening extending through the device for promoting fibrotic development through the opening from a direction from both thumb metacarpal and trapezium. An inflation cannula and/or needle may be attached to inflation port and inflation valve for introducing expansion fluid into the device. In some embodiments, an implant is inserted in a deflated mode and positioned so that a thumb metacarpal abuts distal side of the device when expanded, and trapezium abuts a proximal side thereof. At least one of distal side and proximal side include a smooth surface for allowing relative movement of thumb metacarpal or/and trapezium with respect to the device.||12-12-2013|

|20100023127||PROSTHETIC DEVICES AND METHODS FOR USING SAME - A prosthesis for reducing injury to soft tissues of the body, comprising an implantable member adapted to simulate at least one of a size or a shape of a naturally occurring bursa, where the member may be inflatable or otherwise expandable, flexible or rigid, and may be composed of a biocompatible, biodegradable, or non-biodegradable material. The member is adapted to be implanted at a musculoskeletal attachment site or at a site between a muscle and a bone, and is shaped and sized to reduce injury to the site. The prosthesis may also include a plug which seals the prosthesis automatically upon removal of an inflation tube.||01-28-2010|
