The fusion device includes a range of sizing options and integrated instrumentation.

In addition, the new lateral implants will include smart single-sterile packaging that will provide sterility and improve operating room efficiencies.

Based in Frisco of Texas, 4WEB Medical is engaged in the development of truss implant designs for knee, hip, trauma and patient specific orthopedic procedures.

The company currently produces products such as Cervical Spine truss system, ALIF Spine truss system, Posterior Spine truss system and Osteotomy truss system.

4WEB sales and marketing senior vice president Jim Bruty said: "4WEB has achieved a significant milestone that allows us to address the majority of fusion procedures and approaches performed today.

“We now offer Truss Implant Technology for every mainstream surgical technique used in spine surgery.

"4WEB will continue to be on the cutting edge with meaningful innovation in spine surgery by pioneering implant function through structural design."

New York City’s Hospital for Special Surgery spine service chief emeritus Frank Cammisa said: "The Lateral Spine Truss System represents a significant advancement in treatment options for lateral spine surgery.

"As evidenced in recent porous metal product launches, many companies have failed to recognize the full design potential of what 3D printing brings to the orthopedic arena.”
