MALDEN, Mass., Sept. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Vito Lore, the VP of innovations at KICVentures Group, said "the patent includes a device claim of our threaded implant with the fusion channel; also an embodiment with a 3D porous structure."
"Clinically the 3D porous structure is expected to enhance the threaded implant's performance in fixating the sacroiliac joint and accelerating fusion," said Co-Inventor Dr Kingsley R. Chin, a Professor and Board-Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon and acting CEO of Sacrix LLC.
Sacrix LLC has pioneered a new percutaneous lateral-oblique sacroiliac joint fusion technique that will now make it even easier with the self-tapping, self-drilling and self-harvesting features of this patented 3D porous threaded implant.
Sacrix LLC thanks the dedicated team of engineers, Oscar Herrera, Raul Gawande, Darryl Campbell-Spaulding, and industrial designer Josh Finkel as they worked with focus and urgency to bring this landmark technology to our physicians and patients.
