Clinical and Radiographic Outcomes of Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusions (ALIFs) Using a Titanium Cage with a Biomimetic Surface – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article presents a study that analyzed the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients who underwent anterior lumbar interbody fusions (ALIFs) using a new biomimetic titanium fusion cage. The study showed that the specialized cage, which employs nanotechnology to stimulate osteogenic reactions, resulted in high fusion rates of 97.6% at 6 months and 98.8% at 12 months. Patients also experienced significant improvements in patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) at 6 and 12 months compared to preoperative scores. Only one patient required reoperation for broken pedicle screws, and no patients experienced infections or required readmission within 90 days of surgery. This study highlights the potential benefits of using this new titanium interbody fusion implant with biomimetic surface technology in ALIF procedures

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE We analyzed clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients undergoing anterior lumbar interbody fusions (ALIFs) using a new biomimetic titanium fusion cage (Titan nanoLOCK interbody, Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota). This specialized cage employs precise nanotechnology to stimulate inherent biochemical and cellular osteogenic reactions to the implant, aiming to amplify the rate of fusion. To our knowledge, this is the only study to assess early clinical and radiographic results in ALIFs. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of data for patients who underwent single or multilevel ALIF using this implant between October 2016 and April 2021. Indications for treatment were spondylolisthesis, post-laminectomy syndrome, or spinal deformity. Clinical and radiographic outcome data for these patients were collected and assessed. RESULTS A total of 84 patients were included. The mean clinical follow-up was 36.6±14 months. At 6 months, solid fusion was seen in 97.6% of patients. At 12 months, solid fusion was seen in 98.8% of patients. Significant improvements were seen in patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) (visual analog scale and Oswestry Disability Index) at 6 and 12 months compared to the preoperative scores (P<0.001). One patient required reoperation for broken pedicle screws 2 days after the ALIF. None of the patients required readmission within 90 days of surgery. No patients experienced an infection. S ALIF using a new titanium interbody fusion implant with a biomimetic surface technology demonstrated high fusion rates (97.6%) as early as 6 months. There was significant improvement in PROMs at 6 and 12 months.
