Timothy Bassett, MD (SouthEastern Spine Specialists, Tuscaloosa, AL, USA) has over 23 years of experience in spinal surgery, predominantly in the treatment of adult degenerative lumbar spine. Specialising in addressing failed lumbar fusions, Dr. Bassett has extensive experience in the use of interbody fusion devices with autograft and a variety of bone graft substitutes.
Here, he describes a case in which strong interbody fusion was achieved with treatment using an EVOS HA cage (Cutting Edge Spine) made with PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced (Invibio Biomaterial Solutions). This material combines PEEK-OPTIMA™ polyetheretherketone with osteoconductive hydroxyapatite (HA).
