Dr. Marc Weinstein, from the Center for Spinal Disorders at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, will have a podium presentation “Use of a Novel 3-D Titanium Alloy Lordotic Expandable Cage Improves Segmental Lordosis after TLIF Greater than with a Static Lordotic Cage. Dr. Weinstein commented, “The FLXfit enables a unique, in-situ lordosis correction allowing to dial in the lordosis angle and to fit it to the patient’s anatomy.” Moreover, “The FLXfitTM cage effectively allows for larger cage in the interbody space once expanded.” Dr. Weinstein added, “Our study has shown significantly improved segmental lordosis was achieved using FLXfitTM with TLIF when compared to a static cage. He concludes, “We are in the midst of a clinical study which will provide a more thorough investigation of this unique device and demonstrate its clinical value for our patients.”
Dr. Raphael Roybal, from the Spine Institute at Chatham Orthopaedics, Savannah, GA., will have a poster presentation “Improvement in Sagittal Alignment and ODI Scores in Patients Treated with MIS TLIF Using a Lordotic Expandable Cage versus a Fixed Lordotic cage”. He noted, “The use of the FLXfit™ expandable cage demonstrated increased correction of the sagittal alignment post-operatively compared to a fixed angle banana cage.” Dr. Roybal added, “The combination of a large footprint device, controlled lordotic expansion and an easy to use instrumentation makes it an optimal solution for my patients.”
Mr. Ofer Bokobza, CEO of Expanding Orthopedics, said that “We are excited to present at this important ISSAS event with two renowned surgeons as Dr. Roybal and Dr. Weinstein. This continues to reinforce the clinical benefits of this novel device and its potential contribution to sagittal alignment.” Mr. Bokobza stated that, “We are excited about the momentum and growth of the FLXfitTMin the US and are continuing to monitor and collect clinical data in more US centers.”
