Application: Spinal interbody implants (Patent ID: US20230380983A1)

The patent filed by Stryker Corp describes a spinal interbody implant with an outer shell, fill material, and tubes extending through the fill material. The fill material is more porous than the outer shell and tubes. The design includes various configurations of tubes, such as intersecting tubes, tubes with different shapes, and channels extending through the outer shell and fill material.

Additionally, the implant may have different layers with varying porosities, with at least a portion of each layer designed to abut vertebral bodies when implanted. The patent also includes claims related to the materials used in the implant, such as titanium or titanium alloy, and the specific porosities of the different components. The design variations aim to improve the performance and integration of the implant within the spinal structure.
