Spine surgeons validated clinical and economic benefits of an entirely synthetic solution in lateral lumbar fusions
"Having clinically-backed Advanced Materials Science options, from synthetic biologics to porous interbody implants, gives surgeons stronger procedural offerings across the entire spine," said
The multi-center, retrospective study consisted of 90 patients who underwent lateral lumbar interbody fusions with the combination of a synthetic bone graft substitute,
Attrax Putty is the first and only synthetic bone graft with
"I am excited to see outcomes that have been traditionally associated with BMP achieved with cost-effective biologics used in porous interbody cage technology," said
The results of this study build upon the extensive clinical evidence validating Modulus interbody technology, Attrax Putty and the broader X360 portfolio. Studies show that:
- 90 patients treated at 136 thoracolumbar levels with Modulus XLIF and Attrax Putty showed high rates of success and low rates of complications.1
- In the only Level I randomized controlled trial of a synthetic bone graft substitute in instrumented posterolateral fusion, Attrax Putty demonstrated non-inferiority to autograft.3
- When used in combination with single-position surgery, Modulus XLIF and Attrax Putty could substantially improve perioperative economics to the hospital through decreased operative time, while meeting postoperative alignment and clinical outcome goals.4-7
