Aesculap Implant Systems has announced the introduction of the Modulift Vertebral Body Replacement, a new generation of expandable cage technology.
The Modulift Vertebral Body Replacement (VBR) is designed to address Wolff’s Law and provide stable fusion, according to a company press release. The new system’s waffle pattern and spikes provide high stability, and bone growth is encouraged with the system’s central packing cavity and fenestrations.
According to the release, the Modulift system offers sagittal balance and biomechanical restoration with lordotic offerings of 0°, 5° and 10° of correction. Additionally, its oval shape provides a better anatomical design for maximum surface area coverage and load transfer.
The system has a low-profile dovetail attachment and self-alignment capability and includes a preloaded set screws to address surgeon ease.
The unique system profile also offers surgeons maximum visualization during the expansion process of the cage, according to the release.
