FLORENCE, SC–(Marketwired – October 24, 2016) – DeGen Medical introduces Latitude-C™ Porous Ti Cervical Interbody Spacer, an extension of our popular and effective Latitude-C™ product line, is designed to consider the uncinate process of the cervical vertebra. The lateral angled shape is a shift from traditional rectangular shape and mimics patient anatomy. The variety of profiles and angles provided allows a perfect fit at every fusion level and match individual patient anatomy. The Latitude-C™ Porous Ti Spacers with porous titanium coated surfaces are designed to provide an effective surface for bone implant contact.
The first anterior cervical fusion surgery using DeGen Medical’s Porous Ti technology was performed by Dr. Bauerle. “The right roughness developed by DeGen Medical allows better bone apposition increasing fusion rates,” exclaims Dr. Bauerle, “The remarkable increase in graft volume benefit early union and wide surface area support is very beneficial to decrease micro-motion between vertebral bodies and subsidence.”
