TM Ardis® Interbody System
This interbody fusion system offers the benefits of Trabecular Metal™ Technology with a modern, anatomical shape. The easily inserted TM Ardis Interbody System facilitates an efficient, reproducible spinal fusion procedure with a self-distracting nose, convex geometry and wide range of sizes. The unique interbody system is designed for versatility – it can be used in a variety of open or MIS surgical applications.
This system is made with Trabecular Metal™ Material, which is a unique, highly porous biomaterial made from elemental tantalum with structural, functional and physiological properties similar to that of bone. Trabecular metal is up to 80 percent porous and has a fully open interconnected pore structure, which offers an osteoconductive scaffold to allow for bony in-growth into the implant. Trabecular metal’s high coefficient of friction provides initial fixation and modulus of elasticity similar to cancellous bone.
