NEUROSTRUCTURES, INC. grows Patent Portfolio with Pronaos™ Expandable Interbody Spacer

July 21, 2022 – /OrthoSpineNews/ – NeuroStructures, Inc. a medical device technology company focused on innovative development of Spinal Implants, announced it received Issue Notification from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Patent No. 11,382,761 on July 12, 2022, for an “Expandable Interbody Spacer”. 

The issuance of the patent for the Pronaos™ Expandable Interbody Spacer marks the second patent granted this year to NeuroStructures, for Expandable Technology.  This Expanding Solution represents the next generation of Expandable Technology.  With the addition of this latest patent, NeuroStructures now has over 30 patents as part of their armamentarium.

The Pronaos™ Expandable Interbody Spacer offers surgeons a modern approach with its Expandable PLIF / TLIF System.  With Streamlined Instrumentation, it provides the surgeon minimal tissue disruption and nerve retraction while restoring patient alignment.  Pronaos™ Implants are inserted at a Reduced Height to minimize impaction and Preserve Endplate integrity.  Textured Titanium Endplates promotes immediate Mechanical Fixation & Potentially Upregulating the production of Osteogenic factors critical for Bone Growth & Fusion.

Pronaos™ offers Large Graft windows with the ability to Pack Bone Graft AFTER being expanded, assisting with Sentinel & Columnar Fusion through the Implant.  There is NO loss of Length when Fully Expanded.  A Bulleted Tip simplifies insertion in Collapsed Degenerative Discs without compromising the Apophyseal Ring.  Controlled & Continuous In Situ Expansion allows for Foraminal & Disc Height Restoration.

Pronaos™ simplifies the Surgical procedure with Automatic Locking once Desired Expansion Height is achieved, without loss of Height Restoration.  When expanded in the disc space, the Implant optimizes Endplate-to-Endplate Fit to assist in the restoration of Normal Alignment.

Adjustable Trials reduces Trailing Steps and Accurately determines Optimal Implant and Disc Height, increasing efficiency.  Providing Multiple Footprints with Effective Sizing allows for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) approach, and Optimal Fit for all patient anatomies.

As CEO, Eric Hansen is excited to offer this Expanding Technology to surgeons.  Hansen and his team remain devoted to continuing his legacy of a “Company built by Surgeons for Surgeons.”  As a company, NeuroStructures endeavors to serve the spinal industry by providing comprehensive medical solutions to improve and enhance the quality of life for patients through innovation, cost cutting measures, and increased efficiencies.
