An Arkansas neurosurgeon has completed 400 cases with Camber Spine's Enza-A titanium anterior lumbar interbody fusion implant.
James Blankenship, MD, of Neurosurgery Spine Center in Fayetteville, performed his first case with Enza-A two years ago. The 3D-printed device is designed with a controlled, trabecular pattern to promote fusion.
"The system eliminates the need for plating and thus the inherent risk of injury to surrounding structures. My average time for insertion after disc preparation is less than 5 minutes," Dr. Blankenship said in a June 23 news release.
The implant can be inserted, deployed and locked all through the instrumentation of the inserter, which reduces complexity and surgery time, according to Camber Spine.
