Vertebral body replacement with smart endplate design

Following corpectomy in the thoracic and lumbar regions, a reliable vertebral body replacement (VBR) device is needed to secure support for cortical bone and provide reliable replacement for the natural weight-bearing structures.With POSEIDON, this is achieved through a distinctive endplate design. A large rectangular endplate that reaches up to the cortical area minimises the risk of implant subsidence. In addition, the teeth on the endplates provide primary stability and prevent dislocation. The slightly convex shape allows the implant to rest
