Designed to consider the uncinate process of the cervical vertebra, the new interbody spacer will provide an effective surface for bone implant contact.

It is available in different shapes and sizes and is offered in five different footprints from 12x12mm to 20x15mm, with each footprint having 13 different heights ranging from 5mm to 14mm.

In addition, the interbody spacer is available in three different shapes such as anatomic, lordotic and parallel.

According to the company, the variety of profiles and angles provided allows a perfect fit at every fusion level and match individual patient anatomy.

Dr. Bauerle has carried out the first anterior cervical fusion surgery by using the firm’s Porous Ti technology.

Bauerle said: "The right roughness developed by DeGen Medical allows better bone apposition increasing fusion rates.

“The remarkable increase in graft volume benefit early union and wide surface area support is very beneficial to decrease micro-motion between vertebral bodies and subsidence."

DeGen Medical is engaged in the development of advanced products for the treatment of patients with complex spinal disorders.
