cervical interbody fusion cage / anterior / titanium
Footprints: 12x14, 14x16, 16x18mm
Heights: 5-10, 11-18mm
Lordosis: 6o, 0o
IMPLANT PREPARATION AND INSERTION
Open the sterile packaging of the Interbody (height and
footprint) that was determined with the Trial. There is no need
to undersize or oversize the Implant.
Attach the Interbody to the Inserter by aligning the male/
female thread components while rotating the instrument
handle clockwise. Confirm the Implant is securely attached but
DO NOT overtighten (Fig. 7).
If desired, a modular sleeve with a 2mm Safety Stop can be
attached to the shaft of the Inserter prior to loading the
implant. The Safety Stop will contact the anterior edge of the
vertebral body when the Interbody is inserted 2mm beyond the
anterior edge of the vertebral body.
Adjust the position of the Safety Stop on the modular Inserter
sleeve if utilized. Safety stop should be positioned in the
Pack the center cavity of the Implant with autograft and/or
allograft comprised of cancellous and/or corticocancellous
bone graft (Fig. 8).
Gently insert the Implant into the intervertebral disc space. It is
important to ensure the Implant is seated in the midline of the
disc space and slightly recessed (approximately 2mm).
If necessary, controlled and light tamping with a mallet can be
used to help advance the implant to the desired position within
the intervertebral disc space.
-Use caution when tightening the Implant to the Inserter to
avoid stripping threads or overtightening where detachment
of implant from instrument becomes difficult.
-Standard implants have a 6° angle of lordosis. 0° versions are
offered as optional.
