Orthofix Launches Opus BA for Spinal Surgery

Orthofix Medical commenced full market launch of Opus™ BA, a synthetic bioactive bone graft solution for cervical and lumbar spine fusion procedures.

Available in putty and strip formats, Opus BA can be used to fill bone voids or gaps in the skeletal system that are not intrinsic to the stability of bony structure. Opus BA acts as a scaffold allowing bone growth across the surface that is reabsorbed and replaced with natural bone during the healing process. Easily hydrated with autogenous bone marrow or autograft with saline, Opus BA is moldable and ideal for versatile applications.

Opus BA’s osteoconductive matrix comprises carbonate apatite bone mineral, bioactive glass and Type 1 Collagen carrier. These materials were selected for the ability to stimulate the growth, formation and resorption of bone. Opus BA undergoes a proprietary process to ensure the osteoconductive matrix has uniform distribution, mimicking the structure and porosity of cancellous bone.
