Camber Spine Announces FDA Clearance And National Launch of SPIRA™ Open Matrix ALIF
WAYNE, Pa., August 15, 2017 – Camber Spine Technologies announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its SPIRA™ Open Matrix ALIF device, a unique, interbody fusion implant consisting of spiral support arches and Surface by Design™ technology. This clearance marks Camber’s tenth line of spinal implant systems to be released in the US market.
SPIRA™ was designed specifically to increase fusion rates and stabilization. The spiral support arches decrease subsidence by load sharing over the entire endplate, while also maximizing bone graft capacity. The Surface by Design™ technology is a deliberately designed roughened surface that facilitates bone growth through an optimized pore diameter, strut thickness and trabecular pattern.
"Camber Spine is very excited to be launching our first in a series of spinal implants using 3D printed - additive manufacturing. This specialized manufacturing technology allows us to create these truly unique patented structures featuring open arched matrices and proprietary surfaces designed to enhance fusion and promote bone growth. In the coming months we will be launching a series of five SPIRA™ spinal interbody cages for cervical, lateral, and posterior lumbar spine. Extremity implants and custom implants for salvage and complex deformity implants are also under development.”
“We believe that the addition of SPIRA™ and ENZA™ MIS Integrated interbody devices to our product portfolio create a foundation of patented implant solutions that will drive the growth of Camber Spine".
-Daniel Pontecorvo, CEO Camber Spine
The Camber Spine SPIRA™ Open Matrix ALIF is indicated for use in skeletally mature patients with Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels from L2-S1. SPIRA™ Open Matrix ALIF is intended to be used with additional FDA-cleared supplementary fixation systems.
CAMBER SPINE TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES EXCEEDING THE 150TH IMPLANTATION OF ENZA™ ZERO-PROFILE ALIF
WAYNE, Pa., July 21, 2017 – Camber Spine Technologies, today announced that they have exceeded 150 implantations of the ENZA™ Zero-Profile ALIF device that was launched last July.
“We have been doing anterior spine reconstructions for over 20 years and have used a lot of different ALIF devices” said Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Steven B. Wolf, M.D. of OIP in Camp Hill, PA. “I have extensive experience using the Globus Independence®, Zimmer-LDR ROI-A® and other ALIF devices from Renovis and Titan Spine. The ENZA™ has been an indispensable alternative to all those implants. I can insert ENZA™ and deploy fixation with one instrument and I have the reassurance that I can easily remove it if needed. With the insertion of ENZA™ the patient’s spine feels immediate stabilization, especially if they need to be flipped for posterior instrumentation. Our access surgeon loves this implant, because it makes his job much easier. ENZA’s™ single instrument deployment, without extra retraction of the vessels, eliminates the need for passing multiple locking instrumentation required by other devices."
ENZA™ was designed to increase patient safety by minimizing retraction necessary for implantation of the device, utilizing its integrated fixation. It is often described as “designed for the access surgeon” because of its completely inline instrumentation--which relieves the burden that other systems induce by requiring larger retraction to accommodate angled instrumentation.
“We are very excited to achieve this important milestone in the initial launch of the ENZA™ ALIF” said Daniel Pontecorvo, Camber Spine's CEO. The overwhelming interest and success of ENZA™ reaffirms our plan to make this the first of an entire platform of products utilizing our patented ENZA™ Duo Presa™ (Two Grips) Anchor Technology. Surgeons assert that it is a simpler, safer and more stable alternative to all other locking ALIF devices.”
This achievement comes at an inflexion point for Camber Spine, as they continue to expand sales into new territories of the U.S with new hires.
The Camber Spine Technologies ENZA™ MIS Zero-Profile Anterior Interbody Fusion is indicated for use with autogenous bone graft in patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels from L2 to S1. These implants may be implanted via a laparoscopic or an open anterior approach. The Camber Spine Technologies’ ENZA™ MIS Zero-Profile ALIF is intended to be used with additional FDA-cleared supplementary fixation systems.

CAMBER SPINE TECHNOLOGIES REVOLUTIONIZES SACROILIAC SURGERY WITH
PROLIX™SACROILIAC JOINT FUSION SYSTEM
WAYNE, PA, August 5, 2016
Camber Spine Technologies has partnered with Dr. Joseph DiCicco of Orthopedic Associates of Southwestern Ohio to conduct a post-operative pain study on patients receiving the Prolix™ implant. Patients in the study have undergone pain management therapy for sacroiliac pain over an extended period of time and have now opted for surgical treatment of the sacroiliac joint. The study will compare patient pain scores pre- and post-operatively.
“The recent release of Camber’s Prolix™ has resulted in the first real advancement in SI Fusion surgery options in years. As the first bone graft delivery system to complement the ‘old school screws only’ fix of the past, Prolix has revolutionized this difficult diagnosis. This percutaneous procedure has been well received by my patients, with some saying you’ve changed my life forever, no longer do I need pain pills or even to see my pain management physician! In sacroiliac disease, as the surgeon, it’s all about patient selection. A perfect sacroiliac surgery candidate is one who had excellent initial relief from SI fluoroscopic injection but who slowly, over time, no longer experienced such relief from injection therapy. When I suggest a percutaneous, outpatient surgery to correct a commonly debilitating diagnosis, it often brings tears to my patients’ eyes. Just the option to get long-term relief is a new hope for many of them. I am very pleased with the results so far and will continue to offer this as a permanent fix for my patients!”
- Joe DiCicco, DO

CAMBER SPINE TECHNOLOGIES LAUNCHES TWO NEW PRODUCTS:
2016 Commercial Product Launches
Wayne, PA, April 26, 2016
Camber Spine Technologies is proud to announce the launch of PROLIX™ and ORTHROS MIS™
The PROLIX™ SI Fusion System provides a safe, minimally invasive approach for what Camber believes is the first true fusion product designed to treat Sacro-Iliac pain. The system utilizes an safe inferior approach between the Posterior Superior Iliac Spine (PSIS) and the Posterior Inferior Iliac Spine (PIIS). A machined cortical bone spacer is implanted between the sacrum and ilium through a special cannula. The space is now treated like a discectomy to help promote fusion as opposed to only limiting motion of the joint when solely using lateral screws. PROLIX™ used in conjunction with lateral screws has the potential to decrease the opportunity for revisions by providing a true fusion technique to the spinal implant market to treat Sacro-Iliac pain. Cases are currently being performed so contact Camber Spine to see how you can use PROLIX™ in your hospital or practice.
The ORTHROS MIS™ Posterior Stabilization System is the latest addition to Camber’s high performing ORTHROS™ brand pedicle screws. The MIS version of the system includes breakaway screw head extensions which facilitate the MIS technique. The pedicle screws are designed to provide rod reduction within the screw head. An effective instrument combination for compression and distraction enables the surgeon to adjust the spinal segments instead of toggling polyaxial screw heads. The Rod Inserters are some of the most rigid and small stature Inserters on the market which further facilitate an MIS technique. The system provides a flexibility unlike any other to promote the different techniques used for MIS surgery. There are (4) different Dilation options which can reduce the number of steps used to implant each pedicle screw. Neuro-monitoring is easily performed through the PEEK Dilators and Tap Sleeve.
