Anders Cohen, DO, performed the first cast with Kleiner Device Labs' KG 2 Surge flow-through interbody system.
The case, a single-level transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion, was completed July 19 at The Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York City, according to an Aug. 1 news release. The device is a single-use bone graft delivery tool combined with a titanium fusion implant. It comes with instruments in a single tray and is designed for efficiency.
"The system worked flawlessly, allowing precision placement of the interbody cage and fusion graft in a seamless sequential manner," Dr. Cohen said in the release. "The integrated fusion delivery system enabled a quick, maximum delivery of the graft material to the re-expanded disc space. The system is intuitive and reduces the number of steps usually needed to perform this procedure. There is a minimal learning curve for the physician and our team."
