Titan Spine® Announces Review of Research Supporting its nanoLOCK® Titanium Spinal Implants Published in SPINE
Next Generation of Interbody Devices
Titan Spine offers a full line of Endoskeleton® interbody fusion devices that feature either our proprietary nanoLOCK® or our original surface technologies, which have been shown to promote a significantly greater amount of bone growth factors necessary for fusion when compared to other common interbody fusion device materials such as polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and smooth titanium.1 Our nanoLOCK® micro and nano-scaled surface features are present on all internal and external surfaces, thus providing the potential for bone growth throughout the implant.
And here are other cool things you are going to like about our implants:
- Large windows and internal volumes provide for significant bone graft packing, desired bone graft loading, clear CT and MRI visualization, and the potential for multi-directional bone growth.
- Endplate sparing design (no ridges or teeth) does not damage the vertebral endplate, thus yielding increased resistance to subsidence.
- Large footprints allow the implants to reside on the apophyseal ring, which further resists subsidence.
- Radiopaque nature of titanium assists in placing the device in the desired location.
- Large variety of sizes accommodate various patient anatomies.
