Tesera SA Stand-Alone ALIF Cage System

Spine Product Group

The Tesera® SA Stand-Alone ALIF Cage is a porous titanium Stand-alone Anterior Cage designed to be part of the fusion, rather than merely a vessel for it.

Using additive manufacturing, we have created an ideal trabecular structure for bone in-growth, providing excellent long-term fixation. Four screws and an innovative locking system provide immediate fixation and confidence.

KYOCERA is committed to advancing patient care through better products, based on scientific and clinical data. We commissioned an independent study through IMDS Discovery Research to validate our Tesera Trabecular Technology. Below are images and excerpts from the Twelve Week Draft Report. The final report, with 24 Week data, will be posted upon completion.

Figure 12: This figure shows an overhead view of the 75 micron stained sections. Black=Titanium, Pink=Bone, Blue=Fibrous Tissue & White=Pore Space. The 12 Week specimen had excellent bone attachment to the porous coating. Note – no bone grafts, synthetics or other extenders were used in this study.
