DePuy Synthes unveiled its PROTI 360° Integrated Titanium Family of interbody devices.

Here are five points.

1. The PROTI 360° implants are designed for patients with degenerative disc disease.

2. This implant family is the only titanium-integrated PEEK providing 360 degrees of titanium integration.

3. The implants' titanium-integrated surface is bioactive, encouraging the attachment and growth of bone-forming cells.

4. A study found calcium deposition was 470.4 percent higher with the PROTI 360° than PEEK alone and 305.1 percent higher than titanium alone one day following device testing. Calcium deposition is a precursor of bone formation.

5. The PROTI 360° implant family encompasses:
• ACIS PROTI 360° System for cervical fusion
• T-PAL PROTI 360° System for lumbar interbody fusion
• CONCORDE PROTI 360° System for lumbar interbody fusion
