EIT Cellular Titanium® Cages
EIT Cellular Titanium® in combination with anatomical landmarks, to achieve an anatomical restoration of the spinal segment, has been applied in a family of cervical and lumbar cages. more...
In this lunchworkshop three top-speakers, being Prof. H. Michael Mayer, MD PhD, Jasper F. Wolfs, MD, Dr. Steven M. van Gaalen, MD PhD, have discussed the issues with current standard cage materials and designs, which can be overcome using porous 3-D printed EIT Cellular Titanium® cages. By watching the on demand webcast, you will be brought up to speed with the current status of EIT patient specific implants and the results of the cervical and lumbar clinical applications.
For the first time a patient with a degenerative cervical spine problem has been treated with an anatomically adapted 3D printed titanium fusion implant.
The operation was planned and executed by Uwe Spetzger, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery of the Klinikum Karlsruhe in Germany. He is the current president of the annual meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery.
The first EIT cervical cage was successfully implanted in Den Haag in the Netherlands on Friday, Mai 30th by Dr. Mark Arts from the MCH, the Medisch Centrum Haaglanden.
Neurosurgeon Dr. Mark Arts is enthusiatic about the 3-D printed EIT titanium implant: “A perfect fit of the implant could be chosen easily for this patient and I was surprised about the excellent primary stability of the EIT cage related to the adjacent endplates.”
