Nanovis Launches Expanded FortiCore® Line of Interbody Fusion Devices at NASS
Proprietary Approach Layers Titanium Scaffold Surface Technology on PEEK Implants Creating Differentiated Devices
CARMEL, Ind., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Nanovis, a life sciences company committed to developing scientifically advanced regenerative platforms for implantable medical devices, today announced the availability of the FortiCore® wedge shaped lordotic cervical cage and a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) device with increased scaffolding.
Nanovis’ FortiCore® implants combine the benefits of PEEK and titanium creating the most scientifically advanced interbody fusion devices. The launch of the wedge shaped cervical cage and TLIF follows the completion of more than 400 FortiCore® implantations by leading surgeons at hospitals throughout the United States.
FortiCore® interbody fusion devices are comprised of a PEEK center with a deeply porous titanium scaffold. PEEK Optima® by Invibio is also injection molded into the scaffold for exceptional integration. This unique combination of technologies is designed to increase positive outcomes in spinal fusion procedures with the imaging capabilities preferred by surgeons.
“Hospitals that are focused on outcomes and quality of care want interbody devices that allow surgeons to improve fusion and stabilization rates. This requires a different approach. A scientifically advanced approach that is fundamentally different from legacy titanium, PEEK, and surface coated implants,” said Matt Hedrick, CEO, Nanovis. “FortiCore® isn’t a chip off the old block. We’ve layered a deeply porous titanium scaffold on PEEK creating fundamentally differentiated implants. That is uniquely FortiCore® and this differentiation is only the beginning. At Nanovis, we continually invest in science that advances innovation to the surface to revolutionize implants.”
Nanovis’ FortiCore® interbody fusion devices include cervical and TLIF implants complemented by the FortiFix pedicle screw system and FortiBridge cervical plate system. Nanovis is featuring FortiCore® at the 2015 North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting in Chicago, November 14-17, at the Nanovis booth (#1779).
Nanovis LLC’s vision is to become a high growth company using nanotechnology to enhance the performance of its surgical implants. The company’s broad intellectual property portfolio can be used to enhance implants to better manage the interface with bone, soft tissue, nerves, cardiovascular tissue, and to reduce colonization of implants by bacteria.
