Studies indicate that 4WEB Medical's Lateral Spine Truss demonstrated a better resistance to subsidence vs. an annular interbody implant. The findings indicate the capacity for load distribution inherent to 4WEB's additively-manufactured truss technology.
Biomechanical testing compared the 18mm wide, 40mm long 4WEB implant vs. a 21mm wide, 60mm long annular design lateral device.
4WEB's spine truss devices include cervical, anterior, posterior and lateral designs. The lateral version debuted with first U.S. surgeries in early 3Q17.
