K2M introduced its CASCADIA Interbody Systems to the U.S. market.

Here are four highlights:

 

1. The CASCADIA systems feature the company's Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology, which utilizes a 3-D printing technique to build structures that would be impossible to construct with traditional manufacturing.

 

2. The 3-D technology allows for a 70 percent porous implant with an enhanced bone graft volume and comparable stiffness to equivalent K2M PEEK designs.

 

3. K2M introduced the systems during the North American Spine Society annual meeting in Boston, from Oct. 26 to Oct. 29. The company will also present on 3-D printing manufacturing techniques, displaying ProX DMP 320 Direct Metal Printer from 3D Systems as well as offering a virtual reality experience for surgeons.

 

4. The company's CASCADIA product portfolio includes the CASCADIA TL, AN, Lateral, AN Lordotic Oblique and Cervical Interbody Systems.
