Renovis Surgical Technologies received FDA 510(k) clearance for the Tesera SA Hyperlordotic Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion System.

Here are three things to know:

1. Tesera SA is a porous titanium standalone ALIF system, featuring a four-screw design and a locking cover plate to prevent screw backout.

2. The Tesera implants use additive manufacturing and a proprietary design to create a roughened, highly porous surface structure, which allows for bone attachment and in-growth to the implant.

3. Renovis Surgical now offers several 3D-printed, porous titanium implant systems for interbody spinal fusion, including anterior cervical, anterior lumbar and posterior lumbar options.
