Spine Wave Launches New Products for the Cervical Spine

Spine Wave commenced launch of the Defender® Anterior Cervical Plate and the Stronghold® C 3D Titanium Interbody Device featuring TiCell® 3D advanced surface technology. Defender is a titanium plate and screw system that provides fixation for anterior cervical fusion procedures. Stronghold C is a cervical interbody fusion implant manufactured with 3D printing methods to produce a unique surface designed to optimize the implant’s interface with bone.

Defender provides secure fixation by offering fixed and variable angle screws in a dual- lead thread design in multiple diameters with a wide range of lengths, and in self-drilling and self-tapping designs. Simple locking is provided with a dual-cam locking mechanism that secures both screws at each level in one step. Defender is also designed with large graft windows to provide direct visualization during the procedure and to facilitate radiographic visualization after the procedure.

Stronghold is offered in a wide range of sizes. The TiCell 3D advanced surface technology featured on all Stronghold 3D Titanium Interbody Device implants is characterized by a dual layer of optimally sized interconnected pores. This interconnected porous structure is constructed in a lattice intended to mimic the organic structure of cancellous bone and provide a rough surface to strengthen the interface between implant and bone. All Stronghold 3D Titanium Interbody Device implants, which are also offered in TLIF and PLIF designs in addition to Cervical, also feature an open architecture to contain large amounts of bone graft and facilitate fusion.

Laine Mashburn, Spine Wave’s Executive Vice President for Global Marketing and Business Development, said, "The Defender Anterior Cervical Plate and the Stronghold C 3D Titanium Interbody Device each address important market segments with advanced technology and appealing features. Both products are very complementary to our Proficient® Posterior Cervical Spine System.”
