Osseus Fusion Systems develops curved additively manufactured titanium transforaminal interbody fusion device
March 3, 2021
Osseus Fusion Systems, Dallas, Texas, USA, has announced the launch of AriesTM-TC, the company’s additively manufactured transforaminal curved interbody fusion device for patients with degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine region.
The company’s range of Aries devices are produced from highly porous, additively manufactured titanium, optimised for bone fusion and biological fixation using PL3XUS, Osseus’ proprietary AM technology. PL3XUS titanium technology utilises Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) to create a three-dimensional diamond lattice network with roughened surface topography designed to promote bony fusion onto, and throughout, the device. The Aries-TC lumbar interbody fusion device is available in a variety of footprints, heights and lordotic angles to best accommodate a range of patient anatomies.
“This marks the second anniversary of the Aries 3D-printed lumbar interbody line. In early 2019, we released the Aries-L, Lateral Lumbar Interbody System and, in early 2020, we launched the Aries-TS, Transforaminal Straight Lumbar Interbody System,” stated Robert Pace, CEO. “We are very excited to continue the release of products in the Aries line with the launch of the Aries-TC, Transforaminal Curved Interbody System. As a company committed to helping those in need of relief from chronic spine pain, we are confident that the Aries family of lumbar interbodies is a positive step toward that goal.”
The system is intended for intervertebral body fusion in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine at one or two contiguous levels, from L2 to S1. It can also assist Grade 1 spondylolisthesis or retrolisthesis at the involved level(s).
The next Osseus AM interbody to be released will be the Pisces-SA Standalone ALIF Interbody System, planned for later this year.
