Additive Implants Achieves Milestone of 200 Levels Treated
PHOENIX, March 12, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Additive Implants announced today that the company has reached the milestone of 200 spinal levels treated with the SureMAX™ Cervical Spacer. The milestone procedure was performed by Dr. Rafath Baig at Banner Desert Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Baig commented: “I have been very pleased with the performance of the spacer and its unique surface features. The implant feels amazingly stable after insertion. The 14° Hyperlordotic option in particular is a powerful tool that has allowed me to obtain proper sagittal balance with relative ease. In patients with prior ACDF that were fused without adequate lordosis, using the 14° cage for junctional level detrition I can correct global balance through just a single level. The post-operative x-rays have not shown any signs of implant subsidence and the lordosis I achieved inter-operatively has been maintained.” Jeff Horn, Additive’s Chief Commercialization Officer said: “We could not be more pleased to see surgeons using our numerous sizing options to help their patients achieve the best possible outcome. We thought there was an unmet need in the market and are very excited to see such a positive response to the SureMAX™.”
The SureMAX™ is part of the family of Cervical Spacers from Additive Implants.
The company’s second 3D printed titanium spacer, SureMAX-X™, recently received FDA clearance. This spacer has a patented* unique lobulated design that uniformly loads the end plates helping to minimize subsidence. The two systems combine to offer a wide range of lordotic angles, 7°, 10° and 14° and footprints as wide as 20mm x 15mm.
