FlareHawk provides a unique expanding spinal cage. The stent based technology allows for minimal insertion footprint. Simultaneous width, height and lordosis expansion. Unprecedented ability to post fill with graft.
FlareHawk9™ is a multidirectional expandable lumbar fusion device, featuring Accelus’ innovative Adaptive Geometry™, that can be inserted at a low profile of 7mm or 9mm tall by 9mm wide before expanding up to 14mm tall and 14mm wide. With FlareHawk9, advantages formerly exclusive to either expandable or monolithic devices are united for the first time.
Small profile designed to minimize neural retraction during implant insertion.
Adaptive Geometry technology delivers expansion in width (starting at 9mm, expanding to 14mm), height (starting at 7 or 9mm, expanding up to 14mm), and lordosis (0°, 6°, 9° and 15°). Controlled in-situ multiplanar expansion is designed to reduce subsidence, restore foraminal height, and re-establish sagittal balance.
Open architecture allows for continuous graft delivery through the implant and into the disc space. Graft volume is only restricted by the volume of disc removed. Post-pack graft delivery after expansion to maximize graft volume in and through the cage.
The open-architecture of the cages conforms to individual patients’ endplate topography. Naturally occuring deformation of multimaterial bi-directional cage may increase the bone-implant interface’s surface area and better distribute the load across the endplate.
