CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. An orthopaedic fixation assembly adapted to be implanted in a bone of a patient, comprising:

a main body adapted for insertion into the bone, the body comprising:

a longitudinally extending stem having a proximal end, a distal end, and a cavity body defined between the proximal end and the distal end, and

a spindle configured to be attached to the proximal end, the spindle comprising: a housing having an annular flange, the annular flange configured to interface with an osteotomy surface of the bone.

2. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the spindle is fixedly attached to the proximal end.

3. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the spindle and the longitudinally extending stem form a unitary element.

4. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the spindle protrudes outwardly from the longitudinally extending stem, and the spindle is configured to extend externally beyond the osteotomy surface of the bone.

5. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the cavity body comprises: at least one aperture configured to receive at least one transverse fixation pin

therethrough, wherein the at least one aperture comprises an elongated slot.

6. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein at least two apertures are configured to be substantially parallel therewith.

7. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, further comprising:

an anchor plug configured to be received in the cavity body and securable to the longitudinally extending stem.

8. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 7, wherein the anchor plug further comprises: a generally cylindrical body having an elongated shaft extending downwardly therefrom, the cylindrical body comprising;

a top portion;

a bottom portion; and

a peripheral side wall having a plurality of secondary apertures defined therethrough,

wherein the plurality of secondary apertures are configured to align with the at least one aperture of the cavity body.

9. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 7, further comprising:

an internally threaded end cap configured to secure the anchor plug within the cavity, the threaded end cap forming a rounded end at the top portion of the stem;

wherein the longitudinally extending stem comprises an external thread disposed on the distal end, the external thread configured to facilitate tightening of the end cap in place.

10. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the spindle structure comprises at least one compliant biasing member configured to apply a compressive force to an end of the bone.

11. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, further comprising:

at least one chock configured to control or prevent rotation of the orthopaedic fixation device, the at least one chock is configured to conform to the shape of the bone.

12. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 11, wherein the at least one chock is configured to abut an outer cortex of the bone.

13. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 11, wherein the at least one chock is configured to prevent rotation of the spindle.

14. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, further comprising:

a porous coating provided at a juncture between the longitudinally extending stem and spindle and interconnecting the longitudinally extending stem and spindle.

15. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 14, wherein the porous coating and at least one spline are configured to prevent rotation of the orthopaedic fixation device and facilitate long-term ingrowth of the bone.

16. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 14, wherein the porous coating comprises an interconnecting porous or trabecular material.

17. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 16, wherein the porous coating further comprises an osteoconductive coating.

18. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 17, wherein the osteoconductive coating is chosen from a group including titanium and hydroxyapatite.

19. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the annular flange is configured to engage a distal face of a resected surface of the bone.

20. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the stem and the annular flange is configured to maintain the position of the orthopaedic fixation device within the bone and facilitate distribution of physiological forces.

21. The orthopaedic fixation assembly of claim 1, wherein the bone is a femoral bone, a humeral bone, a tibial bone, or a pelvic bone.

22. A system for attaching prosthetic components to a bone, comprising:

an orthopaedic fixation device, comprising:

a main body adapted for insertion into the bone, the body comprising:

a longitudinally extending stem having a proximal end, a distal end, and a cavity body defined between the proximal end and the distal end, and a spindle configured to be attached to the proximal end, the spindle comprising:

a housing having an annular flange, the annular flange configured to interface with an osteotomy surface of the bone;

an anchor plug configured to be received in the cavity body and securable to the longitudinally extending stem; and

a targeting guide configured to engage the spindle, the targeting guide having at least one alignment tab configured to provide proper orientation of the spindle.

23. The system of claim 22, further comprising:

a traction bar; and

a pedestal configured to hold the traction bar and the anchor plug in a predetermined orientation.

24. The system of claim 22, wherein at least two alignment tabs are configured to be disposed on the spindle at a 180 degree interval.

25. The system of claim 22, wherein the pedestal is coupled to or fastened to the targeting guide.

26. A method for attaching prosthetic components to a bone, comprising:

making an incision to access and dislocate a bone joint;

exposing articulating bone ends;

removing damaged or diseased cartilage and bone;

carving out a canal in an intramedullary bone space, the canal having a predetermined depth and width relative to an osteotomy surface of the bone;

inserting an orthopaedic fixation device into the canal, the orthopaedic fixation device comprising:

a main body adapted for insertion into the bone, the body comprising:

a longitudinally extending stem having a proximal end, a distal end, and a cavity body defined between the proximal end and the distal end, and

a spindle configured to be attached to the proximal end, the spindle comprising:

a housing having an annular flange, the annular flange configured to interface with an osteotomy surface of the bone,

providing proper orientation of the orthopaedic fixation device using a targeting guide;

affixing at least one transverse pin to the orthopaedic fixation device.
