Spinal Elements' 3D-printed interbody system debuts in Ohio and Hawaii

Spinal Tech

The first clinical cases with Spinal Elements' Lucent 3D-printed lumbar interbody system were completed at Hawaii Pacific Health in Honolulu and Youngstown Orthopedics Associates in Canfield, Ohio.

Thomas Noh, MD, of Hawaii Pacific Health, and Douglas Musser, DO, of Youngstown Orthopedics Associates, performed the procedures, according to a Nov. 8 news release.

The Lucent interbody system received FDA clearance in April. It is designed to allow surgeons to deliver a large amount of tightly packed graft inside the device for fusions. The device is made for a posterior approach and has straight and curved designs.

"We are thrilled to share this technology with the surgical community," Spinal Elements CEO Jason Blain said in the release. "Lucent 3D’s novel design is meant to address subsidence and the amount of bone graft material available for fusion — two clinical challenges surgeons note exist with other 3D-printed interbody devices."
