NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Centinel Spine, Inc. (Centinel Spine), the pioneer of spinal Stand-Alone, No-Profile® devices, announces the launch of Ti-ACTIVE™, a commercially-pure titanium coating, at the 2014 North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California.
Ti-ACTIVE™ is an osteoconductive, texturized, bioactive, titanium coating applied via a unique and proprietary application process delivering high-quality, reproducible, uniform thickness with controlled porosity.
The texturized Ti-ACTIVE™ coating creates a three-dimensional osteoconductive environment that delivers enhanced fixation, increased primary stabilization and bony on-growth. The bioactive surface also accelerates mesenchymal stem cell adhesion and proliferation providing a biological friendly environment for bone formation.
After a successful alpha launch with very positive feedback from surgeons, Centinel Spine is commercializing Ti-ACTIVE™ coating with STALIF C-Ti™, providing spine surgeons with the first titanium-coated, No-Profile® Anterior Cervical Integrated Interbody™ System on the market today.
"Ti-ACTIVE™ represents our commitment to advancing the standard of care in spinal fusion procedures merging the established osteoconductive advantage of titanium with the elasticity and visualization benefits of PEEK and the proven clinical success of STALIF® technology," proclaims John Viscogliosi, CEO and President of Centinel Spine.
