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.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Enhanced Osteogenic Response
NITRO implants have demonstrated superior protein absorption and increased osseointegration compared to other biomaterials 1,2
Silicon nitride possesses unique bacteriostatic properties, inhibiting the growth of bacteria 2
The biomaterial used in NITRO allows for artifact-free 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.
