The use of additive technologies in medicine is multifaceted, relevant and expanding at a rapid pace, including in Russia. Direct confirmation - informational messages from the participants of the conference "3D printing / Additive technologies for medicine, world and Russian experience", which was first organized by Z-Axis within the framework of the international scientific and practical forum "Russian Health Week", held in December 2019. at the Central Exhibition Complex "Expocentre" (Moscow). Here the possibilities of 3D printing for surgery, orthopedics, dentistry and even bioprinting were presented.
Olga Voblaya, General Director of Pozvonoq, spoke about the work on the manufacture of individual and serial intervertebral cages (implants used in spinal surgery).
Printed implants with multiple channels forming a three-dimensional mesh are the best suited to provide mechanical stability and endogenous bone growth through them.
The absence of a link between the surface and the implant itself provides high structural strength, which reduces the risk of delamination typical of macrorough coatings. Geometrical repetition of the base cell results in a uniform and highly porous outer surface characterized by a high coefficient of friction.
The company has prepared 10 product lines for various segments of the spine: cervical and sacral. It is more than 275 standard sizes, two versions: hollow and with a cellular structure. At the moment, a registration certificate is being drawn up with Roszdravnadzor, which is necessary for the production and sale of serial products.Back to news list
