Title: FIXATION DEVICES, FIXATION SYSTEMS, AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
Abstract:
A fixation device includes an outer member, a retaining member, and an inner member. The outer member includes an elongated body portion defining a central bore through at least a portion thereof that extends along a central longitudinal axis. The elongated body portion includes a slot defined therethrough. The retaining member is disposed within the outer member when in an initial position and extends through the slot of the outer member when in a deployed position. The inner member includes a cam shaft body disposed within the central bore of the outer member. The cam shaft body is coupled to the retaining member such that rotation of the inner member moves the retaining member between the initial and deployed positions.
