The Valeo C+CsC with Lumen Interbody Fusion Device is a composite spinal fusion implant that combines different densities of Amedica's proprietary medical grade silicon nitride ceramic. An outer shell of solid silicon nitride is manufactured around a porous core, called CsC (Cancellous structured Ceramic).
CsC reflects a truly unique technology and is the first structural porous bioceramic available in a medical implant.
Published clinical data from the CASCADE clinical trial (Arts, et.al 2017) have shown that CsC can achieve spinal fusion sua sponte, i.e., in the absence of added bone grafts, and with success rates at least as favorable as bone autograft, i.e., the gold standard in bone fusion.
The Valeo C+CsC with Lumen Interbody Fusion Device is indicated for intervertebral body fusion of the cervical spine in skeletally mature patients.
