The FDA granted Stryker FDA 510(k) clearance for its Sahara Lateral 3D expandable interbody system.

 

Four things to know:

1. The expandable implant features K2M's Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology, which uses a 3D printing process and high-energy laser beam to develop porous, titanium surfaces.

2. The Sahara Lateral device has expansion capabilities designed for surgeons to achieve up to 30 degrees of sagittal spinal correction in skeletally mature patients.

3. The implant can be adjusted intraoperatively from a lateral approach or in a staged posterior approach following osteotomy.

4. Sahara Lateral will be exhibited at the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Annual Forum in Las Vegas from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2.
