First U.S. Spinal Case with NGMedical BEE PLIF

NGMedical announced the first U.S. implantation of its additively-manufactured titanium BEE® PLIF.

The BEE PLIF cage honeycomb endplate design is intended to reduce the risk of subsidence, while allowing fusion. The honeycomb structure allows for bony ingrowth while offering a very large graft space. Smooth lateral surfaces facilitate insert and rotate technique. BEE PLIF is offered in a wide range of sizes up to 18° lordosis.

"This successful market launch in the USA is an important step for NGMedical. The first operation with the BEE® PLIF cage in this important market is a great milestone in our international commercialization. We look forward to expanding our portfolio and footprint in the USA." said Peter Weiland, CEO of NGMedical.
