  • NEW YORKNov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 4WEB Medical, an orthopedic device company focused on developing innovative implants utilizing its proprietary Truss Implant Technology™, announced the initial launch and completion of the first procedures with the Cervical Spine Truss System-Stand Alone™ (CSTS-SA). 

    The CSTS-SA implants incorporate an Advanced Structural Design comprised of the company's proprietary Truss Implant Technology.  Since receiving 510(k) clearance in August, the system has been utilized in multiple surgeries, contributing significant revenue growth that is expected to continue into 2020.

    Tasha White, 4WEB's Director of Marketing said, "CSTS-SA is the latest product offering showing our continued commitment to innovative solutions that improve clinical outcomes.  Recently completed studies show the hierarchical surface roughness of the Truss Implant Technology drives osteogenic cell differentiation. Combined with the mechanobiologic properties of the truss structure, the osteogenic gene expression is better optimized than competitive devices." 

    CSTS-SA is a complete, zero-profile, construct solution that eliminates the need for traditional plate and screw fixation.  The device also features an easy-to-use single-step locking mechanism, increasing surgeon confidence and improving procedural efficiency.

    Brad Prybis, MD, spine surgeon at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic commented, "I am a firm believer in the 3D printed truss design of the implants which stimulates bone growth.  With the ability to stabilize the interbody in a stand-alone style with cephalad and caudally directed screws, I feel very confident in its ability to provide a successful outcome for my cervical patients."

    The CSTS-SA is the one of many products planned to be released in the next year that supports 4WEB Medical's growth strategy with investments in product development, clinical research and procedural based solutions.

  • CHICAGOSept. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 4WEB Medical, an orthopedic device company focused on developing innovative implants utilizing its proprietary Truss Implant Technology™ announced today the completion of Phase I in vitro testing that demonstrates the surface roughness on its truss implants stimulates a superior osteogenic response when compared to smooth titanium and PEEK. 

    The study, conducted by David Rowe, M.D., Director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Skeletal Development at the University of Connecticut, concluded that the 4WEB truss implants, which contain hierarchical surface roughness ranging from the macro to nano scale, significantly increased cellular differentiation and osteogenic gene expression over time when compared to smooth titanium and PEEK.  Data from this study will be presented next month at the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (SMISS) annual meeting. 

    Lewis Harrison, Vice President of Research and Development at 4WEB Medical said, "We are pleased to have completed the first of several in vitro and in vivo studies that are part of a comprehensive clinical research program intended to fully characterize the effect that the truss implant has on bone formation and improved clinical outcomes.  4WEB's Phase II in vitro study will focus on mechanobiology, the study of how physical forces applied to cells and the corresponding changes in the mechanical properties of those cells contribute to healing.  The study has been initiated through a research collaboration with the The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB) at the University of Pennsylvania."

    4WEB's Truss Implant TechnologyTM actively participates in the healing process by facilitating bone fusion. Post-operatively, the implant receives load during normal patient activity.  The truss structure distributes the load through struts which then transfer strain to adjacent cellular material, triggering a mechanobiologic / osteogenic response. Quantifying the impact of the cellular response on healing could have significant implications on future implant designs.

    Kris Radcliff, M.D., spine surgeon at the Rothman Orthopedic Institute stated, "4WEB's mechanobiology study is very exciting.  Traditional spine implants are static by the nature of their design which means the impact of the surface roughness on those implants may be limited.  A pilot study out of the University of California, San Diego has previously shown that under cyclic loading the combination of 4WEB's hierarchical surface roughness and the kinetic nature of the implant's Advanced Structural Design amplifies osteogenic gene expression when compared to static test samples.  The study being conducted at UPENN should answer a lot of questions about implant optimization strategies that lead to better clinical outcomes."

  • DALLASOct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --  4WEB Medical, an orthopedic implant company focused on developing innovative implants that utilize its proprietary Truss Implant Technology™, announced the commercial launch of the newest addition to the company's spine implant portfolio, the Stand-Alone Anterior Spine Truss System (ASTS-SA). The first procedure was performed by James Lynch, MD, Neurosurgeon and CEO of Spine Nevada, at Renown Medical Center in Reno, NV.

    Dr. Lynch commented, "The addition of integrated screws to the implant allows for an ALIF procedure that eliminates the need for supplemental fixation or plating.  This, coupled with all of the advantages provided by 4WEB's proprietary truss technology, results in not only a cost savings, but also a quicker and more minimally invasive procedure that improves patient safety, and enhances clinical outcomes."

    The ASTS-SA is a complete, zero-profile stand-alone construct. The implant features an integrated interface for three fixation screws while maintaining the open architecture and fundamental benefits inherent to the truss design.  The device also includes dual single-step locking mechanisms that prevent screw backout, increasing surgeon confidence and improving procedural efficiency. The product line is available in multiple footprints, lordotic angles, and heights to accommodate varying patient anatomy.

    Consistent with 4WEB's existing product portfolio, the ASTS-SA has an Advanced Structural Design that incorporates the company's proprietary Truss Implant Technology™.  Under normal loading conditions, the struts in the truss implant transfer strain to adjacent cellular material which stimulates a mechanobiologic response in the form of increased osteogenic gene expression that can be beneficial to the healing process. 

    "The launch of the stand-alone anterior interbody implant is a significant milestone for 4WEB and is the latest example of the company's continued commitment to invest in product development, clinical research, and procedural based solutions.  We are excited to provide this best in class procedural solution and anticipate that this product will drive considerable revenue growth for the company." said Tasha White, Vice President of Marketing for 4WEB Medical.
