      Cervical Spacer – a corpectomy implant with ”3D-Truss-Ti” technology

      ”C·Spacer” is intended for stabilization of the cervical spine. Its goal is a reconstruction and/or preservation of the natural anatomy of the cervical spine in cases requiring corpectomy.

      ”C·Spacer” implant is made of Ti-alloy powder and manufactured using Electron Beam Technology (EBT). A porous implant of a special truss structure providing excellent conditions for a fusion where bone can fill the cage up to 65-70%. Its directional and corrugated (serrated) contact surfaces called ”shark teeth” prevent movement and dislocation after implantation into intervertebral space. Thanks to ”3D-Truss-Ti” technology the spacer does not require the bone graft or the bone substitute.

    Clinical Cases



    At the end of the 20th century, technologies stemming from aero-space engineering opened a world of new possibilities in 3D spatial architecture. LfC managed to transmit this space technology to the field of spinal implants. Electron beam melting (EBT-Electron Beam Technology) of Ti-alloy powder with temperatures over 2000 deg. C in a vacuum chamber -that is the essence of technology used to create a new generation of 3D-implants. Apart from the structure itself, which favors bone ingrowth within the spatial cells, the implant’s design enables an accelerated osteointegration mechanism reducing fusion time by 40-50 percent and more. This new phenomenon was studied and called „Ivy-like mechanism, L.C.” as a metaphor for the natural growth process of ivy, which climbs along the specially made rough surface of truss design.
