NuVasive commenced commercial launch of Modulus® ALIF, a 3D-printed porous titanium implant for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF), in targeted global regions.
Modulus ALIF is the latest addition to the NuVasive Advanced Materials Science® portfolio and provides implants and instrumentation designed for both supine ALIF and XALIF™ procedures. Modulus ALIF comes in a variety of sizes and lordotic options to accommodate varying patient anatomy. Highlights of the Modulus ALIF technology include:
- Proprietary Modulus titanium design: Modulus is designed for enhanced osseointegration, biomechanical, and imaging properties. The porous surface architecture is engineered to participate in fusion and promote new bone on-growth and in-growth. The proprietary design also allows for enhanced visualization compared to solid titanium implants.
- Zero-step locking mechanism: This feature provides definitive tactile and visual confirmation, enabling confidence in a surgeon's screw placement in the implant.
- Low-profile, versatile instrumentation: The device's instrumentation can be utilized in both supine ALIF and XALIF, supporting a surgeon's preferred surgical approach. The instrumentation's low-profile and versatile features are designed to increase operating room workflow efficiencies.
NuVasive is focused on clinical validation of X360®, a comprehensive lateral approach to single-position surgery that includes XLIF®, XALIF, and XFixation™.
