NITRO is CTL Amedica’s exclusive and revitalized family of interbody implants, crafted entirely of the heavily researched and proven bio-ceramic material, silicon nitride.



Enhanced Osteogenic Response

NITRO implants have demonstrated superior protein absorption and increased osseointegration compared to other biomaterials  1,2


Bacteriostatic Properties


Silicon nitride possesses unique bacteriostatic properties, inhibiting the growth of bacteria  2

Artifact-Free Imaging

The biomaterial used in NITRO allows for artifact-free CT Scan imaging, enabling clear visualization of the implant and surrounding tissues

Next-generation Nitro implants harness all the innate advantages of silicon nitride,
in combination with innovative enhancements for an even greater osteogenic and bacteriostatic response.


Precisely Sized Axial Pores

The NITRO interbody fusion family incorporates precisely sized axial pores that promote capillary action and a pathway for bony through-growth



Macro-texturing provides even greater surface area throughout the implant, increasing bony contact and enhancing innate bacteriostatic properties

Integration Options and Configurations

The NITRO interbody fusion family offers a robust and comprehensive variety of standalone integration options, lordotic offerings, and size configurations 

Note: Standalone integration is pending market launch.

In 1990 scientists found naturally occurring silicon nitride in meteorite stardust, suggesting intergalactic origins from the beginning of time.
