Cervical cage „C●DISC PEEK” typ is intented for use in cervical spine stabilisation. It supports the restoration of natural height of disc space and cervical lordosis.
„C●DISC PEEK” by LfC means the widest portfolio in terms of sizes as well as shapes. Cages are made of PEEK Optima (polyetheretherketone) – an implantable polymer. This biomaterial is chemically resistant in body enviroment, non-sensitizing and it’s flexural modulus is close to cortical bone. Cage is available in two designs with „shark teeth” – with or without 4 spikes on each surface, which provide additional fixation of implant in endplates for safer positioning in intervertebral space. Design of implant provides excellent conditions for fusion due to wide center hole, which can be filled with autologous bone or bone substitute in form of paste, blocks or granules. Side slots in the implant enhance fusion process, additionally.
Cage can be connected to cervial plate.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Main implantation procedure steps
1. Preparation of implantation space – discectomie and distraction
2.Proper implant choice:
a.trial of width and depth
b. trial of implant height
3. Supplement of implant with autologous bone or bone substitute and insertion
4. Unscrewing and removing of cage inserter
Cage designs – wide range of shapes to meet many anatomical conditions
Synthetic bone substitute
Bone substitutes in block form, paste or granules can be used. All forms are synthetic – made of beta tricalcium phosphate – biocompatible and fully resorbable. We offer and recommend to use Cerasorb by Curasan AG/Germany.
