Spinal Elements has launched its Lucent Ti-Bond line of PEEK interbody implants with a plasma-sprayed titanium porous coating.
Spinal Element’s Ti-Bond coating consists of random, unconnected titanium pores, that are biomechanically adhered through a plasma vacuum spray process to the superior and inferior surfaces of its PEEK-OPTIMA interbody implants. This results in an ideal bone-opposing surface while allowing for direct visualisation of the fusion mass through the radiolucent PEEK material.
Jason Blain, president and co-founder of Spinal Elements, adds, “With the launch of our new Ti-Bond product, the spinal device market is taking a great step forward. This launch is one of an extensive line-up of product introductions we will be executing over the next 12 months. The company will also be introducing our first allograft product in October, making Spinal Elements the sole source for spinal surgeons’ needs.”
Spinal Elements is the first to introduce this technology for posterior lumbar and transforamenal interbody fusion (PLIF and TLIF) devices into the marketplace.
