US-based Spineology has started full market release of the Elite Expandable Interbody Fusion System.

The implant is inserted into the lumbar disc area at a contracted minimum height.

The company noted that Elite has been used in more than 300 cases and its use continues to grow.

Once located in the lumbar disc, Elite is expanded to restore anatomic disc height, provide anterior column support, and potentially indirectly decompress.

“Elite is expanded to restore anatomic disc height, provide anterior column support, and potentially indirectly decompress.”

The surgeon is able to control device expansion and lock the device in any position.

Maximising fusion potential, the implant is made of titanium alloy and has a large graft window to enable bone through-growth.

Spineology CEO John Booth said: “Following the successful completion of the Elite Expandable Interbody Fusion System’s limited release and the receipt earlier this year of the expanded FDA clearance, which included the addition of a narrower 10mm footprint and allograft bone labelling, we have now initiated the full market release of Elite.”

Incite Cortical Fibers are a versatile bone grafting solution and offer an osteoconductive and inductive matrix, better handling properties, in-situ expansion, as well as placement options via a variety of delivery methods.
