MEASURING NATURE UP TO PROJEKTY
  • Posterior Lumbar Interbody Cage
    • s-LIF
      new options for 3D-Truss-Ti-implants

      This cage combines the fusion enhancing features of the “3D-Truss-Ti” structure together with the precision of insertion and placement provided by the unique anchoring guides. It belongs to the whole CarЯLIF-family – a group of implants based on 3D-Truss-Ti Electron Beam Technology – which have been first time applied for spinal implant by LfC. Those implants constitute a new significant step in spine surgery due to their special function enhancing new trend in surgical treatment of spine:

      “Bridging of spine” with 3D-Truss-Ti construction.

      s-LIF (straight Lumbar Interbody Fusion) implant is specially dedicated to TLIF as well as other possible LIF surgical approaches chosen by the surgeon (PLIF, XLIF, ALIF, etc).

      • FUNCTIONS

        • Decompression & unloading of the neural structures;
        • Acceleration of osteointegration:
          • acceleration of bone ingrowth & overgrowth of implant;
          • quick patient recovery;
        • For different surgical approaches;
        • Restoration of natural spine geometry;
        • Reduction of invasiveness – for MISS  procedures;
      • FEATURES & BENEFITS

        • Uniquely shaped anchoring guides for:
          • controlled insertion & precise placement;
          • supreme primary stability;
          • enlargement of load bearing surfaces;
          • prevention against migration & expulsion;
        • Anatomical „bullet” shape:
          • smooth insertion;
        • Specially designed 3D-Truss Ti structure:
          • minimal volume of titanium;
          • more than 65% space for bone ingrowth;
          • light & strong construction;
          • high load bearing capacity;
          • surfaces of 3D-Truss elements susceptible to osteointegration;
          • superior bony fusion;

    Technology & s-LIF description

    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 transmitted 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.
