Orthofix Medical announced the U.S. launch and first patient implants with the fiberFUSE™ Strip, an advanced demineralized fiber bone graft solution containing cancellous bone. The fiberFUSE Strip is formulated as a convenient preformed bone-graft strip to enable optimized application for posterior cervical, posterior lumbar and degenerative spinal procedures.
Comprising natural 100% bone, the fiberFUSE Strip contains a mixture of mineralized cancellous and demineralized cortical bone, with no carrier added, to create a natural scaffold allowing for revascularization, cellular ingrowth and new bone formation.
MTF Biologics is the exclusive processor of the Orthofix fiberFUSE Strip. Their proprietary, validated aseptic processing methods retain the natural growth factors within the cortical fibers. The fibers interconnect, resulting in a pliable, cohesive graft. The cancellous matrix component provides a porous scaffold to allow ingrowth of host vasculature, osteoblasts and mesenchymal stem cells. The fiberFUSE Strip can be rapidly rehydrated with the surgeon’s reconstitution solution of choice.
