Figure 1: Image of the implant (Prototype I). (a) Lateral profile (A), superior view (B), and joint view (C) of the implant. The implant comprises upper (rostral) and lower (caudal) plates. Both these plates have arrangement that allow it to be firmly fixed with the underlying bone. The outer surface of the plate that is in proximity to the facetal bone surface has ragged edges for stabilization. The articular surface has a ball-and-socket–type joint that permits movements in x, y, and z axes. (b) End on view (A) of the implant showing the ball-and-socket joint. B and C showing the mobility of the implant with the ball-and-socket joint. (c) A and B showing the lateral movement of the implant
