In Russia, new metal implants were created for installation in the lumbar spine. In this respect informs TASS refers to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

Such implants or cages are especially indicated for installation in severe spinal fractures, complex operations in this area and in case of pathological wear of the intervertebral discs. To attach the cage, the surgeon needs an instrument with an extended shaft. Its handle has a device that allows you to “push” the implants into the space between the vertebrae.

The devices have passed technical and toxicological tests, and their mass production is planned to be expanded in the near future.
