NuVasive has announced the commercial launch of Modulus ALIF, a 3D-printed porous titanium implant for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF), in targeted global regions.
“Modulus ALIF has been one of NuVasive’s most successful clinical evaluations to date with continued surgeon adoption and overwhelmingly positive feedback. This differentiated technology furthers our position to become the market leader in ALIF and extends our Modulus portfolio across all procedural segments” said Massimo Calafiore, executive vice president, Global Business Units at NuVasive. “We are leveraging our experience as the leader in lateral surgery to deliver outcome-driven innovation to fuel continued growth and differentiation in the anterior spine segment.”
Modulus ALIF is the latest addition to the NuVasive Advanced Materials Science (AMS) portfolio and provides implants and instrumentation designed for both supine ALIF and XALIF procedures. In addition, Modulus ALIF comes in a variety of sizes and lordotic options to accommodate varying patient anatomy.
Features of the Modulus ALIF technology include a proprietary titanium design, zero-step locking mechanism, and low-profile, versatile instrumentation.
“Modulus ALIF has been a long-awaited implant in my practice. The design is best-in-class and the differentiated surface structure will help improve fusion and clinical outcomes,” said Gregory M Mundis Jr, orthopedic spine surgeon and co-director of the San Diego Spine Fellowship at Scripps Health, San Diego, USA. “The device’s instrumentation is designed to work with various patient anatomies. This versatility makes me more confident that I am choosing the best solution for my patients.”
