ChoiceSpine, an implant manufacturer backed by Altus Capital Partners, received FDA clearance to launch its Blackhawk Ti cervical spacer system.
1. Blackhawk Ti features 3D-printed porous titanium technology to promote bone growth post-spinal fusion, Anders Cohen, DO, lead surgeon for the device, said in a May 25 news release.
2. Dr. Cohen said the implant's simplicity and instrumentation help reduce surgery time "by decreasing the number of steps in the procedure."
3. Blackhawk Ti comprises a large graft window for containment and improved visualization; simultaneous, single-step anchor deployment; integrated anchor technology; and external locking capabilities.
