Expandable Lumbar Stand Alone Cage
Expandable Lumbar Stand-Alone Cage NEOdesmos is designed for posterior implantation in spinal fusion surgery as a common treatment for degenerative or pathologic disc diseases, spine ligament instability, foramen stenosis by reduction of intervertebral spaces, recurrent prolapse, lumbar pseudarthrosis, grade 1 and 2 degenerative or isthmic spondylolisthesis (with or without reduction).
NEOdesmos provides a new technique that allows the spine to be fused with less morbidity.
NEOdesmos Stand-Alone PLIF cage is made of Titanium and coated with Hydroxyapatite offering excellent biocompatibility. It is CT-and MRI compatible and sterilized.
NEOdesmos expands from 1 to 3,5 heights by a tightening cylinder roller mechanism with stop between the upper and lower plate. Each height corresponds to 4 degrees augmentation of the plates’ cornering and the total expandability of 15 degrees assures the restoration of the natural spine lordosis.
There is a locking system that prevents any rotation in the intervertebral space.
NEOdesmos has jagged surfaces and anchoring pins at the end of each plate for perfect fixation but rounded angles for smooth placing without harming the nerves.
NEOdesmos is available in two types with or without special canal for bone graft input. It comes in 4 height dimensions of 7, 9, 11 and 13 mm x 24mm x 10mm.
Two NEOdesmos are implanted in each level offering excellent fixation without need of additional instrumentation or post-operative back braces for support.
