Spinal device manufacturer ChoiceSpine has announced the full market release of its next-generation Harrier standalone anterior lumbar interbody fusion (SA ALIF) system.
Featuring a Biobond 3D printed titanium porous structure, the device is available in three anatomical footprints, with multiple lordotic options.
It includes four individual titanium, dual-threaded, corticocancellous screws, which are designed for lag purchase and graft loading.
The Harrier SA system incorporates the company’s BioBond porous structure technology.
It includes multiple insertion options for minimally disruptive and seamless access to the anterior lumbar spine.
The device has an integrated Cam-Locking mechanism for additional security. This also enables the prevention of quick and secure screw back-out.
The system is compatible with the Raven Anterior Lumbar Plate System, if additional fixation is required.
ChoiceSpine Strategy and Technology executive vice-president Steve Ainsworth said: “The launch of our next generation Harrier SA system builds on our already robust family of 3D printed product portfolio. Harrier SA provides surgeons [with] an excellent stand-alone solution for ALIF procedures.”
The company noted that the Harrier SA system includes a large graft window which is required for combining it with Stratofuse Biologics.
Harrier SA system’s design surgeon from Gainesville, Georgia Betsy Grunch said: “The Harrier SA System instrumentation and implants provide an exceptional solution for my patients requiring anterior lumbar fusions.
“The wide variety of footprints and lordotic options allow for optimal restoration of the disc space. In addition, the system allows up to 45° screw angulation, which is optimal for L5-S1 implant placement.”
ChoiceSpine is held by private equity firm Altus Capital Partners.
