Broadens Fortilink interbody product line to now include both titanium and 3D-printed polymer options.
DEERFIELD, Ill., Sept. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Surgalign Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: SRGA) a global medical technology company focused on elevating the standard of care by driving the evolution of digital health, today announced the expansion of its Fortilink product portfolio with the introduction and commercial launch of a new family of interbody fusion devices featuring TiPlus technology.
The new implants include Fortilink-A with TiPlus technology for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) procedures; Fortilink-TC and -TS with TiPlus technology for posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF/TLIF) procedures; and Fortilink-C with TiPlus technology for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedures.
The new family of 3D-printed titanium (Ti) alloy interbody cages are fully porous and designed using the benefits of 3D-printed manufacturing without compromise of clinical requirements. With an interconnected architecture and acid-etched nano-surface, Fortilink-A, -TC, -TS, and -C with TiPlus technology are available in a wide range of footprints and hyperlordotic offerings and are designed to allow for primary stability and bony ingrowth.1
The Fortilink interbody fusion (IBF) family of implants with TiPlus technology was designed with direct input from leading medical practitioners with a goal to incorporate characteristics surgeons seek in a titanium interbody fusion device. The system features streamlined instrumentation and a wide variety of implant sizes allowing surgeons to implant their preferred choice for the patient.
“TiPlus is a great new offering that significantly bolsters the interbody solutions I can offer to my patients, based on their specific clinical need,” said Dr. Jon White, an orthopaedic spine surgeon at Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, California. “The acid-etched surface and optimized pore size allows for both bone ongrowth and ingrowth, providing confidence in achieving favorable patient outcomes.”
Dr. Aaron Creek, a spine surgeon at The Neck and Back Institute of Florida, in Destin, added, “The expansion of the Fortilink system to include a 3D-printed titanium implant, in addition to the existing TETRAfuse 3D-printed polymer option, is a unique and efficient solution. Utilizing the well-designed Fortilink instrumentation—but with two implant offerings in different biomaterials—allows me to better customize the treatment of my patients.”
