Minnetonka, MN (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
Vertebral Technologies, Inc. (VTI), an industry leader in innovative spinal fusion implants, announced today that more than 3,000 InterFuse® interbody fusion devices have been implanted, including the InterFuse S™ and the InterFuse T™. Both devices use the company’s revolutionary interlocking modular technology to implant a large ALIF-sized implant through a small, single posterior or transforaminal incision.
Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Felt, MD stated: "The continued sales growth and increasing number of surgeon users proves the superiority of our technology. By providing a large implant through a less-invasive approach, we give surgeons and patients the best lumbar fusion option available. We continue our innovative approach to improving spinal therapies through less-invasive approaches and will be bringing two more fusion devices to market in coming months. Additionally, we are very excited about the potential of our InterCushion®, a new motion preserving device that is currently in clinical trial in Canada."
About the InterFuse© Interbody System:
The InterFuse© Interbody System are a pair of modular devices consisting of an integral rail-and-slot multi-segmental system. This system allows the surgeon to customize the width of the device through a less invasive (even minimally invasive) unilateral approach, and it allows for full endplate coverage, similar to an ALIF-approach. The InterFuse T™ and InterFuse S™ are soon to be joined by two more devices to complete the family: the InterFuse T-Duo™ is a second TLIF device and the InterFuse L™ will allow a lateral approach with the benefits of full endplate coverage achieved with a modular device delivered through an MIS tube or a mini-open approach.
