The Born PT-LIF Cage HA was developed for posterior lumbar vertebral body fusion of intervertebral disc segments in the range S1 to L1. It can be implanted through a median posterior approach or a transforaminal approach.
The ACIF PIN cage is a disc implant for intercorporal fusion at the cervical spine with ventral access. (C3 to T1)
The PLIF instruments for implanting the Cages are robust, easy to use and of Swiss quality.

Hydroxyapatite has been shown to improve bone apposition and, unlike a coating, is fully integrated into the polymer matrix and is therefore a component of all Born PT-LIF Cage HA surfaces. Preclinical sheep models have shown for PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced that direct bone apposition7,8 improves compared to unfilled PEEK-OPTIMA Natural™ and provides a beneficial environment for bone growth9 and fusion7.

The Born PT-LIF Cage HA consists of the polymer PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced from Invibio Biomaterial Solutions, a combination of biocompatible PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural (PolyEtherEtherKetone) and Hydroxylapatit1-4 (HA), a well-known osteoconductive material similar to bone. Clinical benefits of Invibio Polymer include a modulus of elasticity similar to cortical bone, reduced stress shielding (bone resorption) and artifact-free imaging that allows clear evaluation of healing and fusion5,6.

Initial clinical results show potential benefits for patients and targeted improvements when using cages from PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced. Cages made from the material have been implanted in the USA since 2015. These include firm fusions and dense bone apposition in CT images after six months, improvements in pain perception and neurological function, as well as better clinical results at an earlier time8. for PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced direct bone contact is more consistent and homogenous9.
