By Julie A. Vetalice

The Chinese Patent Office is issuing Patent Application No. 201180020517.1, "Intervertebral Implants and Graft Delivery Systems and Methods," as an enforceable patent for Pinnacle Spine. This is Pinnacle's first ex-U.S. patent, following three U.S. patents covering InFill® fusion technology.

InFill fusion systems comprise interbody fusion devices that are designed for easier insertion, reduced subsidence through maximum contact with the apophyseal ring, a large bone grafting area and compatibility with the InFill graft delivery system. The devices are offered in designs to accommodate Lateral, TLIF, ALIF and Cervical procedures.
