The Vu a•POD Prime NanoMetalene System features a zero-profile, standalone anterior lumbar interbody device that can be configured in a variety of footprint and lordosis combinations to accommodate an individual patient’s pathology. The Vu a•POD Prime NanoMetalene System offers multiple fixation options for maximum versatility and adds to SeaSpine’s portfolio of offerings featuring proprietary NanoMetalene technology.
“The new lordosis options enable me to better recreate the patient’s natural alignment. These features, particularly when combined with the NanoMetalene technology, should speed the healing process and improve long-term outcomes,” stated Dr. Nilesh Patel, an orthopedic surgeon practicing at Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn, Mich.
NanoMetalene interbody implants are designed to provide the benefits of a titanium surface while retaining the benefits associated with traditional PEEK (polyether ether ketone) devices, such as biocompatibility, a modulus of elasticity similar to bone, and excellent radiographic visibility for post-operative imaging. NanoMetalene describes a sub-micron layer of commercially pure titanium molecularly bonded to a PEEK-OPTIMA polymer from INVIBIO. It is applied in a proprietary, high-energy, low-temperature process that differs from other coating applications and maximizes implant surface area with titanium nanotopography.
Additionally, Vu a•POD Prime NanoMetalene implants are delivered individually sterile-packaged and ready-to-use. This packaging solution is designed to facilitate configurations tailored to address individual surgeon preferences, while simplifying hospital processing requirements and inventory management.
