Life Spine announced today that it received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Ghost 3D-printed titanium spacer system.

Huntley, Illinois-based Life Spine's Ghost 3D-printed titanium spacer expands on the company's interbody portfolio. These implants include options for ALIF, PLIF/TLIF and lateral procedures. The 3D-printed titanium joins PEEK and titanium in the interbody portfolio.

Ghost spacers integrate porous surfaces designed to promote bony on-growth while maintaining external lattice geometry. Life Spine offers Ghost in a range of footprints and lordotic options to accommodate an array of patient anatomies and pathologies.

The system features streamlined instrumentation and Life Spine's variety of posterior fixation offerings. These include the Avatar percutaneous screw system and the Nautilus spinal fixation system. Additionally, the company offers the Centerline midline screw system and ARx spinal fixation system.

Its endplate surfaces include the porous structure, as does the graft window column. The large graft windows allow for packing bone graft material. Additionally, the smooth bulleted tip and streamlined instrumentation provide intuitive insertion capabilities.

"We are excited about the expansion of our interbody portfolio to include 3D-printed implants," said SVP of marketing Mariusz Knap. "Our robust offering is one of the broadest in the industry and includes solutions for nearly every procedure and surgeon preference. With the PEEK, Titanium, and Expandable interbody product lines, the addition of 3D-Printed Titanium interbodies allows Life Spine to offer physicians alternative solutions to customize their patient's treatment."
