Aesculap Implant Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Aesculap Implant Systems Introduces the ProSpaceXP Lumbar Interbody System

Aesculap Implant Systems introduced the ProSpaceXP Interbody System for PLIF procedures. The ProSpaceXP fuses two proven materials, an innovative Plasmapore XP osteoconductive porous Titanium coating and a PEEK-Optima radiolucent core, that deliver enhanced implant stability, artifact-free imaging, and an optimal, osteoconductive scaffold for fusion procedures. A comprehensive range of intuitive instrumentation and over 40 implant size options are available to accommodate varying patient anatomies and intraoperative needs. The design of the ProSpaceXP interbody combines aggressive teeth and the PlasmaporeXP surface coating that enhances implant stability and migration resistance. Additionally, PlasmaporeXP maximizes the contact area between the implant and vertebral endplate, offering surgeons the ideal scaffold for a stable fusion. The ProSpaceXP has excellent imaging properties, incorporating the benefits of the PlasmaporeXP coating, which clearly delineates implant contours during imaging, along with X-Ray marker pins for intraoperative positioning and verification. Aesculap recently released an ovine study that focuses on the advantages of using PlasmaporeXP coated PEEK interbody implants. The study states that PlasmaporeXP coated implants have significantly greater pullout strength and bony ingrowth when compared to uncoated PEEK implants at 12 and 24 weeks. It also concludes that the PlasmaporeXP coating presents a biomechanical advantage by providing initial stabilization as well as long term advanced stability.

Aesculap Implant Systems Announces Launch of Plasmafit(TM) Pro Acetabular System with Vitelene(TM) Liner

Aesculap Implant Systems announced the launch of the Plasmafit(TM) Pro Acetabular System with the Vitelene(TM) liner. The Plasmafit Pro two-piece system consists of a cementless titanium acetabular shell and a highly crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) vitamin E blended liner. The hemispherical and slightly flattened design of the Plasmafit Pro cup along with a rough titanium plasma spray on the outer surface provides a high level of stability for strong primary and long-term implant fixation. The Vitelene liner is formulated with antioxidant protection that provides excellent wear and oxidation resistance and balanced mechanical properties. The cup design of the Plasmafit Pro acetabular system features a modified dome shape for exceptional anchoring, providing immediate grip-feel during implantation. The equatorial pressfit design grabs the rim of the acetabulum, reducing the potential for mal-alignment and minimizing the chance of movement once seated in the socket. The internal design of the Plasmafit Pro cup includes a taper locking mechanism to stabilize the liner for a precise fit on the liner within the cup. The secure fixation of the liner facilitates high stability against tilting and rotation forces. The Plasmafit Pro cup is coated with a titanium porous plasma spray that provides an enhanced surface to help prevent migration of the implant and supports high primary stability. The plasma spray is designed to allow biologic fixation between the bone and prosthesis for long-term survivorship.

Aesculap Implant Systems Launches S4 Element MIS System, First Endoscope Guided Pedicle Screw System for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Aesculap Implant Systems announced the availability of the new S4 Element(R) MIS System, the only posterior lumbar pedicle screw fixation system to utilize endoscope technology to gain direct visualization, providing the advantages of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) with enhanced view of surgical site. To further differentiate S4 Element MIS, the system offers rescue technique and instrumentation designed to minimize risk of open conversion during MIS. With novel, slim profile instrumentation and proven implant stability, the S4 Element MIS provides a simple approach for percutaneous lumbar spinal fusion surgery. S4 Element MIS provides a direct view during rod passing through the use of endoscope technology, providing the ability to confirm rod location and orientation, troubleshoot, and minimize guesswork associated with the MIS spine surgery while reducing exposure to radiation. S4 Element MIS offers intuitive, streamlined instrumentation to facilitate efficiency in the operating room. The slim profile minimizes soft-tissue interference and novel downtube technology allows for instrumentation to be introduced through the 16.5mm diameter to reduce bulk at the surgical site and eliminate the need to lengthen the incision for rod insertion. The S4 Element MIS System relies on the S4 Element(R) pedicle screw technology introduced by Aesculap in 2010. The ultra low profile size, interlocking thread design and unique locking technology combine to maximize implant biomechanics. The S4 Element MIS System minimizes risk of converting to an open procedure, which can lengthen procedure time and reduce the known patient benefits of MIS, with instrumentation engineered to easily reattach the downtube to the screw in-situ.
