Stryker’s Spine division will introduce its Tritanium® C Anterior Cervical Cage, a 3D-printed interbody fusion cage intended for use in the cervical spine, at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting, in Orlando, Florida.
The Tritanium C Anterior Cervical cage is the newest addition to Stryker’s expanding line of spinal implants constructed from its proprietary Tritanium Technology,1 a novel, highly porous titanium material designed for bone in-growth and biological fixation. The unique porous structure of Tritanium is created to provide a favorable environment for cell attachment and proliferation, as demonstrated in an in-vitro study, and the Tritanium material may be able to wick or retain fluid, in comparison to traditional titanium. It is inspired by the microstructure of cancellous bone and enabled by AMagine™, Stryker’s proprietary approach to implant creation using additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing.
Stryker’s Spine division also will present an abstract at NASS, titled, “Evaluation of Bony Fusion with Tritanium PL Used in Mini-Open Approach to Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion,” during the Innovative Technology Presentations.
