SPINEART RECEIVES CLEARANCE FROM THE FDA TO MARKET ITS Ti-LIFE TECHNOLOGY 3D TITANIUM INTERBODY DEVICES

Spineart is pleased to announce that it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market its new JULIET®Ti lumbar interbody systems in the United States.

 

The JULIET®Ti PO, OL and TL interbody systems are the first range of titanium interbody implants benefiting from our proprietary Ti-LIFETechnology1.

 

Ti-LIFETechnology micro-porous scaffold mimics the bone trabecular structure and features interconnected pores of 600 μm to 700 μm and an overall porosity of 70-75% designed to enable cell colonization and promote bone in-growth2

This technology is based on a unique algorithm associated with a state-of-the-art additive manufacturing process, often referred to as 3D printing.

 

The JULIET®Ti PO, OL and TL interbody systems include a full range of sizes to address different anatomies. The smooth bullet-shaped nose, lateral sides and chamfers of the implant are polished to preserve endplates, nerve roots and soft tissues during insertion.

 

The JULIET®Ti design features an overall reduced density to optimize imaging performance.

 

In accordance with the Spineart philosophy, the instrument set is ultra-compact and features multi-functional instruments.

All Spineart implants, including the entire JULIET®Ti range, are sterile packed and barcoded for increased safety, procedure compliance and cost-efficiency.

FIRST JULIET Ti SURGERY PERFORMED IN GENEVA

Spineart is pleased to announce the world's first implantation of the Titanium cages JULIET®Ti PO, featuring Ti-LIFETechnology, at the Clinique Générale Beaulieu in Geneva, Switzerland. 

 

JULIET®Ti PO is a Titanium posterior cage featuring Ti-LIFETechnology a structure that mimics the bone trabecular geometry and is designed to promote bone in-growth. 

 

Frédéric Schils, MD, neurosurgeon, successfully performed the procedure. After the surgery, Dr Schils commented: "it's fascinating to actually benefit from the inter body cage we'd expected so long. The design made it easy to introduce while protecting the dura and the instruments are really intuitive. The Ti structure allows place for additional bone graft and is quite light suggesting interesting X-Rays possible after the surgery"

 

All Spineart implants are sterile packed and bar-coded for increased safety, procedure compliance and cost effectiveness.

SPINEART ANNOUNCES PUBLICATION OF CLINICAL DATA FOR ITS BAGUERA®C ARTIFICAL CERVICAL DISC PROSTHESIS

Spineart announced today the results published in the Journal of Spine from a multicenter European prospective registry for the BAGUERA ®C cervical disc prosthesis: Radiographic Outcome and Adjacent Segment Evaluation Two Years after Cervical Disc Replacement with the BAGUERA ®C Prosthesis as Treatment of Degenerative Cervical Disc Disease(1).

A retrospective analysis of a large range of radiographic parameters was performed by an independent evaluator: 99 patients, treated for symptomatic degenerative disc diseases, by one- or two-level arthroplasty, using a total of 123 BAGUERA® C prostheses were included.

Radiographic images at the treated and adjacent levels, as well at the overall cervical region, were analyzed.

The results, 2 years after treatment by arthroplasty using BAGUERA® C, demonstrate good mobility at the treated and adjacent levels, disc height restoration and clear evidence of adjacent levels preservation. There were no signs of subsidence of the prostheses. Measures at the adjacent levels showed no signs of degeneration or kyphosis. Occurrence of heterotopic ossifications was considered low compared to data published by independent evaluators for other disc prosthesis.

The publication further established cervical arthroplasty using the BAGUERA®C disc prosthesis as a safe, effective and motion preserving surgical treatment. The author also considered the results encouraging in terms of adjacent level disease protection.

So far, more than 15'000 BAGUERA® C disc prosthesis have been implanted successfully worldwide. The first surgery was performed in France in January 2007.

This implant is not available in the USA. For more information, please contact us at contact@spineart.com

First Baguera® surgery performed at the Cayman Islands

The BAGUERA®- C cervical disc replacement has now been performed on two patients in the Cayman Islands by Drs. Lowell Stanley and Matthew Philips.  Dr. Stanley is a graduate of the University of Kentucky Medical School and trained in neurosurgery at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School.  Dr. Philips graduated from Yale University School of Medicine and completed his residency and spine fellowship at The University of Pennsylvania.  The surgeries were performed at the Georgetown Hospital in conjunction with Cayman Brain and Spine and the Cayman Spine Centre, a state of the art facility dedicated to the treatment of spine conditions with particular focus on cervical surgical conditions.  

Since 2007, more than 13.500 BAGUERA® C  have been implanted successfully worldwide. The success of the BAGUERA® C  can be attributed to its main key features such as its anatomical shape, shock-absorption, guided mobile nucleus and MRI compatibility. 

All Spineart implants are sterile packed and barcoded for increased safety, procedure compliance and cost-efficiency.
