First Case with TheraFuse DBF Fiber Bag in Spinal Surgery

TheraCell completed the first two spine surgical cases with the TheraFuze DBF® Fiber Bag™. The Fiber Bag is an allograft alternative to the resorbable polymer mesh bag products that are currently on the market. It is made from 100% demineralized cortical bone fibers and formed using proprietary FiberLok™ technology, which allows the Fiber Bag to maintain its form and integrity after filling and rehydration, permitting manipulation and implantation by the surgeon.

This next generation posterolateral solution offers an alternative to traditional boats and resorbable polymer mesh bags, yielding complete containment of graft material within a bag that is itself osteoconductive and osteoinductive. The Fiber Bag may be packed with additional graft of the surgeon's choosing, and may be sutured for closure following rehydration. The fully contained fiber bag construct may be placed in the posterolateral gutters, in a bone void or cavity, or may be delivered using minimally invasive techniques.

The Fiber Bag is part of TheraCell's portfolio of TheraFuze DBF procedure-specific graft solutions available in the U.S.
