New Tritanium Spinal Implant Fully Integrates With the Human Body

fcc0875a-04ff-4228-b588-8e9312fac664-largeAbout a month after obtaining clearance from the FDA for their Tritanium PL Posterior Lumbar Cage, Stryker launched the 3D printed fusion device at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting this week.

According to Stryker, “Tritanium is a novel highly porous titanium material designed for bone in-growth and biologic fixation in spine applications.” It is designed to help alleviate the problems brought upon by degenerative disc disease (DDD). As we age, the spinal discs dry out and lose their shock-absorbing abilities, in addition to injuries and the wear-and-tear brought by daily activities, this causes back pain of varying severities. And this new implant might help bring relief to millions worldwide.
