JACKSON, Miss., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Zavation Medical Products (“Zavation” or the “Company”), an innovative designer and manufacturer of spinal implants, instruments, MIS procedural kits, and biologics headquartered in Flowood, MS, announced the launch of LABYRINTH™, an innovative porous PEEK interbody cage.
LABYRINTH™, the latest addition to Zavation’s portfolio, features the first available porous endplates integrated through the full cage, setting the new gold standard for interbody cages. In creating the first fully porous PEEK interbody, Zavation has enhanced the benefits of PEEK (reduced stress shielding and artifact-free imaging) with substantially improved wettability and surface tension. In a 21 day in-vitro study, the interbody’s proprietary and patent pending porous structure demonstrated greater pre-osteoblast cell maturation into viable bone cells than standard PEEK, porous titanium, and standard titanium.1
Zavation’s market share and active surgeon base continues to rapidly grow given the Company’s ability to adapt to surgeon/patient needs, consistently upgrade and customize its instruments, and engineer devices with incomparable simplicity, precision, and disruptive technology. The LABYRINTH™ is just another example of Zavation’s sustained investment in research and development furthering its full line of titanium and PEEK static and expanding interbody technologies.
“The LABYRINTH™ demonstrates our commitment to resetting market standards by creating best-in-class products. As a first-to-market product, this fully porous cage highlights our dedication to R&D and the strength of our product development team,” said Jeffrey Johnson, Chief Executive Officer. “With fusion of critical importance, our mission in designing the LABYRINTH™ was to outperform all materials in fusion, which broadens surgeon appeal. Zavation, with our market leading customer service, has become a house for innovation centered on the needs of our surgeons and distributors.”
