K2M Introduces World’s First 3D-Printed Expandable Corpectomy Cage with Cervical Spine Indications

K2M has introduced the world's first 3D-printed expandable corpectomy cage with cervical spine indications. K2M enhances its complex spine and market-leading 3D-printed product portfolios with the addition of CAPRI Cervical 3D Expandable.

The CAPRI Cervical 3D Expandable Cage System* stabilizes the cervical spine in cases of vertebral body resections resulting from trauma or tumor. The system also facilitates continuous in-situ height expansion and endplate angulation in the cervical spine.

This system is available in numerous footprint options, its continuous in-situ adjustment capabilities allow surgeons to lock the cage with set screws at desired heights and lordotic angles within the expansion range of the implant.

The system also allows for fixed endplate angulation of 0°, 5°, and 10° to accommodate surgeon preference and vertebral anatomy.

A cervical corpectomy cage combined with the capabilities of 3D printing with the functionality of continuous in-situ height and lordotic adjustment was never used before.

While utilising a 3D-printed device which is designed to allow for bony integration, one can be able to dial in a precise height and lordotic angle in-situ also.

The CAPRI Cervical 3D Expandable Corpectomy Cages are grown through the selective application of a high-energy laser beam, incorporating complex internal geometries and rough surface architecture that pre-clinical data have associated with bone growth activity.

K2M's Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology uses an advanced 3D printing method to create structures that are impossible with traditional manufacturing techniques. Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology incorporates a porous structure along with rough surfaces to allow the potential for bony integration throughout the cage.

CAPRI Cervical 3D Expandable Cage System*, reinforces the commitment to excellence in 3D-printed spinal innovation and the further integration of expandable technologies across the comprehensive complex spine, minimally invasive, and degenerative product.

The comprehensive Balance ACS platform, help surgeons facilitate three-dimensional spinal balance in their patients.”

K2M received a CE Mark for its CAPRI® Cervical 3D Expandable Corpectomy Cage System* featuring Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology™, and the successful completion of its first surgical case.
