      IlioSacral autogenic Fusion

      ISaF – ahead of time in SI-Joint surgery!

      ISaF (Ilio Sacral autogenous Fusion) with it’s main message „autogenous Fusion closer to nature” fits excellent into the company’s motto „Measuring up to nature”. Using sophisticated construct and procedure the „3D-Truss-Ti” ISaF is filling the joint space automatically during  self-cutting insertion. It uses the best possible material for fusion – patient’s autogenous bone. All steps – insertion of implant, transportation of bone and controlled compression – are being perfomed using one inserter in one round.

      The ISaF (screw-cage) is designed for surgical treatment of various sacroiliac joint conditions incl. sacrolitis and sacroiliac joint disruptions. The implant consists of two threaded parts manufactured by EBT (Electron Beam Technology) for enhanced Fusion (3D-Truss-Ti structure for „Ivy like osseointegration – L.C.”). ISaF is the final result of long-term experience started in the year 2001 with IIVC.

    Implantation description „in situ” & technology




    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.
