Bio2 Vitrium® Cervical Cage Research Study

Dr. Daniel Peterson is a board-certified neurosurgeon with over 13 years of clinical research experience and 27 years of clinical practice treating conditions of the spine.

Under Dr. Peterson’s leadership, Austin Neurosurgeons is currently enrolling patients in a variety of clinical research trials. The trials are being conducted to investigate a variety of medical devices and surgical techniques; such as synthetic bone graft, fusion cages, and artificial disc replacements.

Dr. Peterson is constantly looking for the best ways to treat his patients and is leading the way in research and development of such medical breakthroughs. One exciting study that is now available to his patients is that of a new cervical disc replacement device called the Bio2 Vitrium® Cervical Interbody Device (VCIBD).

The study will evaluate if VCIBD is non-inferior to allograft cage in single-level ACDF with the use of local autologous bone. VCIBD is a restorable cervical interbody cage for the treatment of fusion, following discectomy, of the cervical spine from C3/C4 disc space to the C7/T1 disc space. The material used to manufacture the implant is 13-93 bioactive glass, which is a silicate-based material as described in ASTM F1538-03(R2017). The implant has high porosity and strength and does not contain any biological material or constitute a combination product. The device has a central lumen for packing with autograft. VCIBD is intended to be used with a supplemental fixation system.

The device, when placed between the vertebrae, provides mechanical stability and prevents subsidence prior to bone ingrowth. It restores and maintains the intervertebral space during the fusion process. The porosity and material characteristics provide an osteoconductive matrix that supports bone ingrowth. Additional stabilization is provided by supplemental fixation using anterior cervical plate. The implant incorporates a central lumen, which allows for the cage to be packed with autogenous bone graft.
