"Maximizing implant coverage of the endplates and providing for more uniform load distribution is important to minimizing implant subsidence. We accomplished this objective through a number of differentiated features on the spacer, including the posterior window and the eyebrow holes on the anterior surface," said, COO of Additive Implants.
Brosnahan added, "By using Euler's Column Theory and limiting the implant's height to 9mm, we were able to make SureMAX™-X less stiff than other titanium spacers."
"We felt it was important for us as a company to offer choices of not just sizes but also design philosophies," said, VP Commercialization of Additive Implants. "We wanted surgeons to have multiple options to deliver the best surgical outcomes based on their technique preferences; whether they use Caspar pins, do bone sparing surgery or thoroughly debride the end plates."
