Spinal Elements, a spinal technology company, announced the full launch of its Ventana 3D-printed interbody portfolio.
The portfolio includes the Ventana C Anterior Cervical Interbody System, the Ventana P/T Posterior Lumbar Interbody System and the Ventana L Lateral Lumbar Interbody System. Developed by Spinal Elements, the Ventana portfolio represents the latest innovation in its MIS Ultra platform of products and procedural solutions.
The Ventana product line features a unique implant architecture that maximizes volume and bone graft security through a specialized 3D printing process while minimizing the amount of titanium used to enhance radiographic visualization.
“The Ventana family of implants have a 3D-printed architecture that allows for clear radiographic visualization during imaging. The implant windows allow for a large amount of bone graft to be securely placed within the disc space to ensure contact with the endplates, which I believe is essential for the fusion process,” said Neel Anand, MD, Anand Spine Group, Los Angeles, CA.
Ventana’s minimalist, radiolucent grid design maximizes the amount of bone graft trapped in the device and improves visualization during and after the spinal fusion procedure. Ventana’s design acts like a snowshoe, allowing the bone graft to contact the endplates while providing a wide surface to prevent the implant from sinking. The Ventana family of devices is available in various degrees of lordosis for sagittal balance restoration.
“The Spinal Elements team is dedicated to bringing innovative products to market that when combined with our Orbit discectomy instrument set and our fixations systems, like Karma, Overwatch or Sapphire X, they successfully work together to achieve spinal fusion,” stated Ron Lloyd, CEO of Spinal Elements. “Ventana represents another major milestone in our mission to redefine spinal healthcare.”
The 3D-printed Ventana interbody portfolio was developed organically by the Spinal Elements team with input and guidance from several leading spine surgeons.
