DePuy Synthes has recently announced the launch of their new implantable device designed to treat patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, the CONCORDE LIFT Interbody Implant.

According to MDDI Online, “the implantable device was designed as part of a new procedural solution that can simplify minimally invasive spine surgery procedures used to help restore disc height in the spinal column. This is typically done through the process of spinal fusion, a surgical procedure that places bone or bone-like material within the space between two spinal vertebrae. In an effort to simplify the procedure, DePuy created the CONCORDE LIFT implant to provide patients with a device that can specifically fit each patient’s anatomy due to a continuous expansion mechanism.”

“To help treat patients suffering from advanced degenerative disc disease, the degenerated disc is first removed, and then the CONCORDE LIFT Expandable Interbody device is inserted and expanded, with the procedural aim of restoring height of the disc space,” said Nadav Tomer, worldwide president of DePuy Synthes. “The device is an expandable titanium cage with instrumentation that delivers control and performance to clinicians through tactile feedback and reliable graft delivery. It is designed with a continuous expansion mechanism, which allows the surgeon to specifically fit the intervertebral cage to the patient’s anatomy, creating a more personalized solution.”

“The key difference compared to the majority of other expandable cages on the market is the fact that the CONCORDE LIFT can be backfilled with bone graft post-expansion,” Tomer said. “One of the key requirements for successful fusion is adequately packing the disc space with bone graft, which promotes adequate bone graft-endplate contact. Even though the disc space is typically pre-filled with bone graft prior to cage expansion, an additional void is created when the cage gets expanded. By using the post expansion backfilling technique, in which the bone graft can be pushed through the inserter into the implant and disc space, this void created by the expansion of the device can be filled to create a more homogenous bone environment for spinal fusion to occur.”

DePuy Synthes predicts that 50% of all spinal fusion procedures will be performed via a minimally invasive approach by 2020. The volume of spinal fusion procedures continues to grow, and more and more patients are opting for minimally invasive options which offer reduced recovery times and chances of complications.

Jeffrey Wong, Analyst Director at iData Research says, “The launch of the CONCORDE LIFT Interbody Implant will help further cement DePuy Synthes’ market leading position in the U.S. interbody device market. This new product will allow the company to gain access to a growing market for expandable interbody devices which was valued at over $320 million in 2017. Due to its marketed benefits, the CONCORDE LIFT will be a welcome addition to DePuy Synthes’ well-established portfolio of interbody devices, which include the BENGAL Systems, ZERO-P Spacers, SYNFIX Systems, and the existing CONCORDE Bullet Lumbar Interbody System.”
