NuVasive launches new titanium spine implant — 3 insights

Surface Technology

NuVasive launched Modulus TLIF-O, a porous titanium spine implant to be used in transforaminal lumbar interbody fusions.

Three insights:

1. Modulus TLIF-O features porous surface technology that provides a supportive environment for bone in-growth and bone on-growth.

2. Pre-clinical data found that the porous and roughened outplate design encourages bone on-growth and exhibits a larger integration strength by 12 weeks after surgery compared to alternative implants.

3. The device's lordosis cut in the oblique plane and maneuverability using the same instrumentation is designed for sagittal alignment restoration and helps the surgeon avoid unfavorable coronal misalignment.

"The Modulus implant location and orientation can clearly be visualized in the disc space. This is extremely helpful in the OR to educate my trainees, in the clinic to inform my patients and staff, and in the database for our research and hospital outcomes administrators," said Adam Kanter, MD, neurosurgeon at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
