Uplifter-- PEEK-OPTIMA Spinal Implants

August 20 2018

The growing interest in PEEK-OPTIMA spinal implants in China received further impetus at the 11th Congress of the Chinese Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (CAOS) held in partnership with the North American Spine Society (NASS). At this event, Fule Science & Technology Development, Beijing, and Invibio Biomaterial Solutions partnered to demonstrate the new Uplifter Expandable Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Device in a hands-on workshop in Shanghai.

The Uplifter is the first domestic expandable hybrid cage, whose constituent materials are Invibio’s PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer and titanium. Indications for use of the Uplifter comprise Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) of L2-L5, nerve root-canal stenosis, and lumbar spondylolisthesis.

During the live demonstration on a cadaver using the Uplifter, Dr. Patrick C. Hsieh, from the USC Spine Center in Los Angeles, demonstrated the Direct-Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (DLIF) procedure and device specifics. Further clinical features of this hybrid implant include according to Fule:

• Minimized impaction contributing to preservation of endplate integrity
• Controlled expansion and anatomical fit helping to maximize indirect decompression through disc height restoration
• Continuous expansion that can maintain stability by optimizing the fit
