Written by Shayna Korol | January 16, 2019 | Print  |

Centinel Spine completed initial cases with the newest system in its FLX Platform of 3D-printed all-titanium interbody devices.

Five things to know:

1. The STALIF L FLX Lateral Lumbar Integrated Interbody System is indicated for use at one or two contiguous levels with both autograft and allogeneic bone graft.

2. The STALIF L FLX system is the fourth 3D-printed titanium device Centinel Spine has launched within the last six months.

3. FLX devices feature a combination of solid and porous radiolucent sections designed to reduce mechanical stiffness and improve visibility compared to solid titanium implants. The devices feature a proprietary FUSE-THRU trabecular scaffold, which is designed to allow for bony in-growth and on-growth throughout the implant.

4. The STALIF L FLX features Centinel Spine's No Profile integrated compressive lag screws.

5. The other devices launched in the past six months include the STALIF C FLX Cervical Integrated Interbody, ACTILIF C FLX Cervical Interbody and STALIF M FLX Lumbar Integrated Interbody.
