Ulrich medical USA has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Flux-C 3D printed porous titanium cervical interbody device.
Patrick Maloney, ulrich Medical’s director of deformity, said: “Surgeons have many options for cervical interbodies. The Flux-C porous titanium device offers one of the best in class with superior endplate contact and spaces for generous inter-device bone grafting. It is a welcomed complement to their superior array of expandable cages.”
Flux-C is manufactured using a 3D printing process called direct metal laser sintering. The interbodies are available in multiple parallel and lordotic options in various heights. These porous titanium devices are designed with a large graft window and a side window to allow for improved radiographic imaging, say the company.
Eric Lucas, ulrich Medical USA’s director of technology, added: “We are continuing to develop procedural solutions for reconstruction of all spinal pathologies in collaboration with our surgeon advisory board. We strive to help our surgeons and distributors achieve new heights and beyond with integrity, through excellence in design, manufacturing and craftsmanship.”
