FloSpine achieves 1st 3D-printed cervical spine implantation


FloSpine has successfully implanted the first Ti-Largo 3D printed cervical cage in partnership with the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, according to a Sept. 12 report from South Florida Hospital News.

FloSpine's 3D-printed device first earned FDA 510(k) clearance at the end of February. 

The Ti-Largo is designed to complement the already FDA-cleared Panama Anterior Cervical Plate, creating a comprehensive cervical spine procedure solution. 

The Ti-Largo has a unique patient-centric design and enhanced biocompatibility, offers a minimally invasive solution and optimizes osseointegration, according to the report. 

John Afshar, MD, a spine surgeon at Palm Beach (Fla.) Neuroscience Institute, implanted Ti-Largo in the first patients earlier this month. 

FloSpine is collaborating with medical professionals, hospitals and healthcare institutions to launch Ti-Largo to a broader patient population. 

"The Ti-Largo cervical cage represents a major leap forward in cervical spine surgery. Its patient-specific design and 3D printing technology have the potential to revolutionize the way we approach these procedures, offering greater precision and improved outcomes for our patients," Dr. Afshar told South Florida Hospital News.
