Vertera Spine's technology provides a unique three-dimensional porous PEEK architecture to help elicit and encourage bone ingrowth based on pre-clinical studies, a key factor in improved patient outcomes in spinal fusion
procedures, using a proprietary processing method that retains strength and durability.
The emerging China spinal fusion
market has been experiencing a phase of new product development and technological advancements due to greater demand.
One of the primary reasons for this rapid growth is expansion in the indications for which spinal fusion
surgery is performed," he said.
We hope that this investigational procedure eventually will help those who undergo spinal fusion
in the back as well as in the neck," said Kim, who also is chief of spinal neurosurgery at UC Davis.
He says the neck is always slightly restricted following spinal fusion
Infuse Bone Graft is the only bone graft replacement to receive a US Pre-Market Approval from the FDA specifically for use in lumbar spinal fusion
procedures to treat degenerative disc disease.
Two studies reported at the meeting compared cervical-disk replacement with spinal fusion
After up to 2 years of follow-up, the 11 patients treated by cervical disk replacement had very similar outcomes to the 10 patients who were treated by spinal fusion
Braces improve trunk alignment, sitting, and standing as long as the spine is flexible, until the child is a candidate for spinal fusion
The promising results and early completion of our pilot study position Orthovita to move forward quickly to complete the next phase in our clinical trials to demonstrate the utility of RHAKOSS for the hundreds of thousands of patients each year who undergo cervical spinal fusion
procedures," said Maarten Persenaire, MD, vice president of Medical Affairs World Wide at Orthovita.
In a rabbit spinal fusion
model, the product demonstrated bone formation and fusion rates comparable to current bone grafting techniques.
