Spinal Elements, based in Carlsbad, California, USA has announced the full commercial launch of its Ventana additively manufactured interbody implant portfolio. The range includes the Ventana C Anterior Cervical Interbody System, the Ventana P/T Posterior Lumbar Interbody System, and the Ventana L Lateral Lumbar Interbody System.

Developed by Spinal Elements, the Ventana portfolio is the latest entry in its MIS Ultra® platform of products and procedural solutions, and is intended to maximise bone graft volume and containment through the Additive Manufacturing process. This method is said to reduce the amount of titanium used and improve radiographic visualisation.

“The Ventana family of implants have a 3D printed architecture that allows for clear radiographic visualisation during imaging,” stated stated Neel Anand, MD, Anand Spine Group, Los Angeles, California. “The implant windows allow for a large amount of bone graft to be securely placed within the disc space to ensure contact with the endplates, which I believe is essential for the fusion process.”

Ventana’s minimalist, radiolucent lattice design is intended to maximise the amount of bone graft captured in the device, enhancing visualisation during and after the spinal fusion procedure. Its design also functions like a snowshoe, enabling bone graft to touch the endplates while offering a broad surface to prevent implant subsidence. .

“The Spinal Elements team is dedicated to bringing innovative products to market that when combined with our Orbit discectomy instrument set and our fixations systems – like Karma®, Overwatch® or Sapphire X® – they successfully work together to achieve spinal fusion,” stated Ron Lloyd, CEO of Spinal Elements. “Ventana represents another major milestone in our mission to redefine spinal healthcare.”
