The 2,000th implantation Nanovis’ Forticore has taken place as part of the company’s alpha product launch. The FortiCore posterior lumbar interbody fusion device comprises a deeply porous titanium scaffold interdigitated with a PEEK core.
“My patient’s short term response to the FortiCore PLIF has been positive. I implanted the interbody using a minimally invasive technique with no problems. The shape of the implant is favourable for multiple approach options. I am encouraged by the deep porosity of the titanium scaffold in contact with the vertebral endplate and the pre-clinical data on this technology,” says Richard B Rodgers, Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, Indianapolis, USA, a participant in the alpha launch of the FortiCore PLIF.
“In the 18 months since I started using FortiCore, my patients have been doing well,” says Gregory Hoffman, Orthopedics North East, Fort Wayne, USA, an early adopter of the technology. “Initially, I was interested in trying to improve my patient’s outcomes by using a deeply porous titanium scaffold. I have been pleased with the excellent radiologic on growth seen on X-ray at 8-12 weeks and the ease of imaging bone through the PEEK core,”
