The Modulus TLIF-A is an anteriorly-placed porous titanium spine implant designed to promote bone in-growth and bone on-growth.
“The Modulus TLIF-A system is the perfect synergy between optimized material properties and deliverability,” Dr. Jeffrey Gum, of Louisville, Ky.’s Norton Leatherman Spine Center, said in prepared remarks. “The lattice design allows for improved imaging characteristics, a prime environment to promote fusion and an ideal modulus of elasticity. Additionally, the system optimizes surgical workflow by utilizing a single instrument for implant insertion and articulation.”
San Diego-based NuVasive said the offering completes its advanced materials science portfolio for all major posterior interbody fusion techniques used in TLIF.
The news follows a June announcement for the launch of the Modulus TLIF-O. NuVasive plans to launch its comprehensive advanced materials science portfolio in the global market later this year.
“This complete portfolio offering for the thoracolumbar posterior procedures space is yet another example of NuVasive’s commitment to deliver differentiated technology that supports better patient outcomes,” NuVasive president Matt Link added. “NuVasive’s implants are designed to combine the inherent benefits of porosity with the advantageous material properties of [polyetheretherketone] and titanium to create implants intelligently designed for fusion, which we believe out performs traditional and competitive implants in the market.”
