CONDUIT™ Interbody Platform

Maarten Spruit, Matthew Scott-Young

The CONDUIT™ Interbody Platform is a comprehensive 3D printed solution consisting of five cage designs for lumbar and cervical spinal fusion procedures. CONDUIT™ Implants come in various heights, footprints, and lordotic angles to address anatomical variety and facilitate vertebral fusion.

In 2021 the Spine AO Technical Commission already approved the CONDUIT™ Interbody Platform Lumbar Cage devices, the first release to use trademark technology from Germany's Emerging Implant Technologies (EIT) since it was acquired by Johnson & Johnson Medical GmbH in 2018. The CONDUIT™ Interbody Platform demonstrates advancement in cage technology using 3D printing.

The CONDUIT™ 3D Printed Titanium Cages Cervical were recently approved in 2022 as well.
