Camber Spine has announced that it is entering into the next phase of the complete national launch of its SPIRA-P posterior lumbar spacer and has recently commercialised its SPIRA-T oblique posterior lumbar spacer.
The SPIRA-P posterior lumbar spacer accommodates open and minimally invasive posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) or transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedures and features a patented open architecture design which is designed to achieve optimal endplate load distribution.
Additionally, its uniquely designed surface allows for cell adhesion and bone cell proliferation while its interconnected porosity design mimics bone, say Camber Spine.
The SPIRA-T oblique posterior lumbar spacer is designed specifically to accommodate traditional and ‘insert and rotate’ TLIF procedures. According to Camber Spine, SPIRA-T efficiently accommodates an oblique approach and optimises segmental lordosis.
As with all products within Camber’s SPIRA technology platform, SPIRA-P and SPIRA-T include strategically placed and optimal sized openings for graft packing. The SPIRA products are designed to decrease the risk of subsidence with optimized endplate distribution and provide good visibility for fusion.
The SPIRA implants are 3D printed which the company states allows it to create unique patented structures featuring open arched matrices and proprietary surfaces designed to enhance fusion and promote bone growth.
Camber Spine co-founder and CEO, Daniel Pontecorvo, said: “We are excited to continue to make our SPIRA-P technology available to more surgeons around the country. Providing structural stability following discectomy, our SPIRA posterior lumbar spacers have different shapes and designs to accommodate a broader array of posterior and transforaminal approaches and techniques.”
