Zavation Medical Products launched its LABYRINTH™ porous PEEK interbody cage. The device features the first available porous endplates integrated through the full cage.
Zavation has enhanced the benefits of PEEK, such as reduced stress shielding and artifact-free imaging, with improved wettability and surface tension.
In a 21-day in vitro study, the interbody's proprietary porous structure demonstrated greater pre-osteoblast cell maturation into viable bone cells vs. standard PEEK, porous titanium and standard titanium.
Jeffrey Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, said, "With fusion of critical importance, our mission in designing the LABYRINTH™ was to outperform all materials in fusion, which broadens surgeon appeal."
