    At the end of the 20th century, technologies stemming from aero-spacial engineering enabled a whole world of new possibilities in 3D architecture, and were transmited by LfC to the field of spinal implants. Electron beam melting (EBT-Electron Beam Technology) of Ti-alloy powder with over 2000 deg. C in a vacuum chamber – that is the essence of hi-tech need for creation of new generation 3D-implants. Apart from the structure itself, which favors bone ingrowth within the special cells, the design also enables a better osteointegration mechanism reducing fusion time by approximately 40-50 percent and more. This new phenomenon was studied and called „Ivy-like mechanism, L.C.” as a metaphor for mimic way of the natural growth of ivy climbing along the specially made rough surface of truss design.
