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...

Impressive 6 and 12 months fusion pattern
Recently, we described in two white papers the imaging characteristics and fusion pattern of EIT cervical and lumbar implants. In these papers we present a series of cases typical for a spinal center employing the use of EIT Cellular Titanium® implants. The images in the white papers demonstrate bone ingrowth, sagittal restoration and clear imaging in CT and MRI in all cases with a sufficiently long follow-­up, with no adverse effects observed.
In this news item you can find an example of CT images of a TLIF case described in the lumbar paper. The postoperative image demonstrates some devoid implant-endplate contact, which has been filled up within 6 months postoperative. Besides the bone ingrowth, also the development of a trabecular pattern according to 'Wolf's law' in the cancellous bone of the vertebral body is a sign of the bioactivity of the implants, being accurately integrated in the biomechanical construct.
EIT Lunchworkshop EuroSpine 2015 ON-DEMAND WEBINAR 

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.

First operation worldwide with individualized 3D printed cervical titanium implant 

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.

First EIT Cervical Cage is implanted

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.”
