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 Shanghi.
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.
