WEST CHESTER, PA — Centinel Spine, LLC announced the recent launch of Angled Endplate implants for the prodisc® L Lumbar Total Disc Replacement System. These new endplates have been designed to shift the lordotic angle of the implant to the inferior endplate, expanding the options available to surgeons to better address the varied lumbar anatomy and pathology of patients.
Centinel Spine continues to innovate in the total disc replacement market, and the release of these Angled Endplates in the U.S. represents one of several major recent achievements, including FDA approval of two-level indications for the prodisc L system. The launch of the Angled Endplates includes six angled options, including inferior endplates with lordotic angles of 3° and 8° and a superior endplate with a lordotic angle of 3°.
According to Dr. J. Rush Fisher of Penn Spine Center at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, “I have used the Angled Endplates on every lumbar arthroplasty since they became available to me. The overall balance of the spine simply looks better. This is especially true at the L5-S1 level where an 11 degree implant is needed and on all multi-level cases.”
Centinel Spine’s CEO, Steve Murray, stated, “We will continue to bring innovation to surgeons to support the advancement of patient care. These new Angled Endplates provide more options to surgeons, allowing them to better address varied patient anatomy and pathology. We look forward to sharing these new products along with our other proven prodisc and STALIF® fusion technologies at the upcoming NASS meeting.”
Centinel Spine stated that it continues to lead the total disc replacement market and is the only company with FDA-approved cervical and lumbar total disc replacement devices. The prodisc L remains the only total disc replacement system in the U.S. approved for two-level use in the lumbar spine.
