This technology is a modern Russian promising elaboration. Already now, it shows excellent results, allowing to adapt implants to the anatomical features of a particular patient and achieve the necessary orthopedic and clinical results with a minimum number of fixed spinal segments. 3D cages have proven themselves in the treatment of the entire spectrum of pathological conditions in spinal pathology - from trauma and degenerative conditions to spinal tumors. Further studies on changing the porosity and plasticity of the material will contribute to their early engraftment and reduce the frequency of nonunion.

The Pozvonoq cage wins competition with other manufacturers due to its geometry, which greatly facilitates anterior lumbar interbody fusion, even for patients with a body mass index over 36. The size range also includes hyperlordotic cages that allow the correction of degenerative deformities from the anterior approach, which is an innovative global trend. It is also possible to supply (design and produce) individual cages for specific features of the spine structure in a particular patient. Moreover, prompt shipment of these implants should be noticed. The production of cages is organized in Russia, which will make them less dependent on currency fluctuations. The developed implants are competitive with analogues of foreign and domestic manufacturers not only due to quality, but also because their cost is lower than that of most well-known manufacturers.

The main advantages of additive cages is the ability to manufacture and use them, taking into account the nature of the pathology, individual anatomy and parameters of the bone tissue of a particular patient. Extremely important production aspects should be a well-developed preoperative planning protocol and a short production cycle from a 3D digital model to a finished individual product. Moreover, among the medical advantages, the high quality of the product, safety, preliminary good biocompatibility should be noticed. In addition, the low cost of the product determines good marketing prospects for these implants and allows to hope for a wider application of technologies with proven efficiency in our country.
Pozvonoq company produces serial and individual intervertebral cages using additive technologies.
In January 2023, Pozvonoq company has received a Registration Certificate for the entire line of serial products.
The company's product catalog includes 10 lines of 3D-printed cages, with more than 600 variants of products for the cervical and sacro-lumbar spine, which allows you to choose the most suitable model based on the specifics of the defect and anatomical features of the patient's musculoskeletal system.
