Stryker receives FDA clearance for 3-D printed tritanium lumbar cage: 5 notes

Mackenzie Garrity -  

Stryker spine division's Tritanium TL Curved Posterior Lumbar Cage earned FDA clearance.

The device is expected to be available to surgeons in the second quarter of 2018.

 

Here are five notes:

 

1. The lumber cage is a 3-D printed interbody fusion cage intended for use as an aid in lumbar fixation.

 

2. Stryker designed the hollow implant that consists of solid and porous structures using AMagine, Stryker's proprietary approach to building 3-D implants.

 

3. The tritanium cage features Stryker's Tritanium Technology, a porous titanium material designed for bone ingrowth and biological fixation.

 

4. The Tritanim TL Curved Posterior Lumbar Cage also features open central graft windows and lateral windows to reduce stiffness in the cage, aid in fusion visualization and allow for bone graft containment.

 

5. The device's multidirectional teeth are designed for multidirectional fixation as the cage can be steered and rotated to the surgeon's desired placement.
