LDR Announces Release of its ROI-T(TM) Transforaminal Approach ImplantNew Lumbar Device Broadens LDR's Product Offering
AUSTIN, Texas--(HSMN NewsFeed)--LDR, a total spine solution company, announced today that it has begun to market its ROI-T™ partial vertebral body replacement device following recent 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration.
The ROI-T™ is a transforaminal approach implant with an anatomic shape that conforms to the anterior vertebral body, the minimal width and tapered end of the device facilitating insertion through a small opening. The open interior cavity allows for substantial graft amounts.
The ROI-T™ device is made of PEEK-Optima® for biocompatibility and radiolucency along with Tantalum markers for verification of implant positioning. The system is comprised of multiple lordotic angles and heights for optimized fit per anatomical requirements. An innovative inserter holds the implant, providing full support of the device during impaction.
Christophe Lavigne, CEO of LDR, comments, “The addition of the ROI-T implant to our family of PEEK products provides surgeons with an even greater selection of solutions from LDR. We will continue to increase our range of products before the end of 2008 to support our strategy to aggressively position our company in the US market.”
Dr. Gregory Hoffman of Orthopaedics Northeast in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, comments “The low profile of the implant is perfectly designed for a minimal approach and the implant holder provides full support along the implant and a strong connection for easy maneuverability and placement.”
Dr. Alan McGee of Orthopaedics Northeast in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, adds “The implant’s design conforms well to the anterior vertebral body and with multiple heights and angles of lordosis adapts well to patient anatomy to provide a secure and stable construct.”
LDR works closely with surgeons to develop implantable spine systems and instrumentation that restore optimum stability and mobility to patients and to make spine surgery more reproducible and easier to perform. More information is located at www.ldrholding.com.
