What makes the InterFuse™ System unique is our proprietary intra-operative assembly technology, which allows surgeons to implant a large footprint device through a minimally invasive approach. The shape of each device is biomechanically optimized to match the contours of the endplate and the unique anatomical shape and size of each patient’s disc space. The result is a less invasive implantation that achieves an astounding 97% fusion rate.
Without question, we engineered the best way to create a large footprint implant through a small access channel approach. Patented lateral expansion technology offers the benefits of a smaller incision, less trauma, faster recovery and proven clinical result.
The InterFuse S™ is a lumbar implant comprised of a series of 3 to 6 modules, with an implant coverage area ranging from 340 mm2 to 715 mm2. The InterFuse S™ is available in seven heights (7 mm, 8 mm, 9 mm, 10 mm, 11 mm, 12 mm, 14 mm), one A-P length (20 mm), and two endplate angles (parallel, 5 degree lordotic angle). The device is supplied in 4-module (ABBC) and single B module packages. The device is supplied STERILE.
The InterFuse S™ is made of radiolucent PEEK-Optima™ to provide structural strength with nearly the same stiffness of cortical bone while maintaining the ability to assess fusion progress radiographically. The InterFuse S™ incorporates tantalum markers to aid in visualizing the device during intraoperative and postoperative radiographic assessment. The unique rail-and-slot design using stainless steel tails assures proper placement and alignment of each segment. The InterFuse S™ allows for the use of three to as many as six segments to provide the best fit possible for each individual patient.
The InterFuse T™ implant is an interbody fusion device that combines the large vertebral endplate contact area characteristic of many ALIF devices with the ability to implant through a less invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) approach. The unique design of the InterFuse T™ device incorporates an anatomical shape that assures contact with the peripheral margins and the well-vascularized central portion of the vertebral endplate, areas shown to be critical to proper loading and for reduction of subsidence risk. The interlocking design provides the necessary structural support and endplate contact area while the open caudal and cephalad spaces accommodate new bone growth and fusion.
The InterFuse T is made of radiolucent PEEK-OPTIMA® to provide structural strength with nearly the same stiffness of cortical bone while maintaining the ability to assess fusion progress radiographically. The InterFuse T device incorporates tantalum markers to aid in visualizing the device during intraoperative and postoperative radiographic assessment. The unique rail-and-slot design assures proper placement and alignment of each segment. The rail extensions are made of stainless steel.
The InterFuse T™ device is available in seven heights (7mm, 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, and 14mm) in parallel and 10 degree lordotic configurations. The devices have a 20 mm AP length. The device is supplied sterile.
