Globus Medical’s First Case with HEDRON IA ALIF Spacer

By Julie A. Vetalice

HEDRON IA Spacer

Globus Medical announced the first implantation of HEDRON IA, a 3D-printed integrated anterior lumbar interbody fusion spacer that employs anchors or screws for vertebral body fixation.

HEDRON spacers feature a biomimetic porous scaffold designed to promote bone formation onto and through the implant, with a pore size distribution similar to trabecular bone.

An ovine interbody study demonstrated significantly more bone ingrowth at six weeks within HEDRON implants vs. PEEK and solid titanium implants.
