LAPINE MODEL: 8 WEEKS DATA ON FILE

Pore sizes of 300 to 700 microns shown to be optimal for new bone attachment

70% porous, allowing bony ingrowth

Open pore structure allows flow of cells and signals

Lattice observed to promote bone growth prior to autograft

SUB-MICRO

MICRO

Increased osteoblast recruitment compared to untreated surfaces [1]

Rapid bone attachment at endplates and throughout lattice [2]

Complex sub-micron surface increases osteoblast proliferation [1,3]

Soft Titanium  lattice provides up to 20x more surface area
