2 coligne a strategy in spine Leadership begins before the patient enters the surgical theater, among the spine care professionals forming the coalliance. This may be a small yet vital observation, a critical instrument change, a new surgical method, or the decade-long quest for biomaterials that improve implant performance. From such leadership emerge coligne spine treatment technologies, each with its impact upon our field. Providing spine treatment technologies to the world is coligne s business. Equipping spine surgeons to improve their art is coligne s passion. A way of life.
3 ostapek Composite surgery for increased biologic potential. Spine surgery requires modern materials. To say implant modulus of elasticity is closer to bone just begins the story. A spinal implant must not only bear load, but manage forces to keep bone viable. Whether it is cages or pedicle fixation, spine fusion systems must correct, stabilize and then stimulate viable bone. Tissue must be observed adjacent to the implant. coligne engineers ostapek, a high density long carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite (LCFRP) in controlled orientation, inspired by bone s trabecula for the properties of a specific bone. Implant system performance is no longer the same. 18 years of clinical experience, implants made, patients treated ostapek biomaterial developed for spinal surgery. op 1995 ostapek lumbar interbody cage product line developed coalliance composite surgery workshops & developers sessions First ACIF surgeries Composite fibers trabeculae orientation FDA clears ostapek lumbar plate for USA First ostapek posterior thoracolumbar rod implanted FDA clears ostapek VBR product line flexstaas instruments and ostapek progressive stiffness rods developed Marks 18 years of successful spinal surgery with ostapek implants. 18 years
4 flexstaas Composite performance. Carbon fiber matrix for strength and flexibility. Absolute control. New potential. The flexstaas thoracolumbar rod system equips surgeons with both strength and flexibility. High density composite engineering enables the surgeon to correct and stabilize a spinal segment, yet stimulate bone and protect adjacent levels with a more flexible construct. Bone is observed through the radiolucent biomaterial. Surgical technique resembles all poly and monoaxial systems, but is performed with instruments designed for both titanium and composite surgery.
5 evos pedicle fixation Composite and titanium performance. erriva ELIF Less trauma and less time. Complete access. gemitra TLIF More bone. More surgeon control. trabis cervical corpectomy Engineered for bone and biologic potential. Three evos biomechanical properties and connection choices compose one coherent spine fixation system: Titanium plate, titanium rod, ostapek plate. Using both titanium and ostapek composite technology, the evos surgeon controls the patient s strength and stiffness requirements for simple and complex constructs. Fast. Adaptable. High performance. erriva is a new simplified surgical approach, instrumentation and implant technology that leaves more structures intact with full access surgery that is also minimally invasive. Time is saved. Trauma minimized. Full fusion surgery without compromise. Contact your coligne representative for a spine surgeons workshop proposing erriva ELIF surgery. Using strength gains in ostapek composite, gemitra cages deliver more contralateral reduction and bone graft from a unilateral and strictly sagittal approach. gemitra cage walker instrumentation translates Contra and Ipsi cages with controlled sagittal percussion. Improved reduction and stabilization. Less blood loss and time. More bone and biologic potential. Using destabilizing decompression as an autologous graft source, the trabis cervical corpectomy cage optimizes decompression, stabilization and fusion in one effective gesture. ostapek composite fibers are aligned in upward anchoring struts that resist 4500N in load and rotate up to 45 degrees before failure. Anterior plating is an option.
6 VBR State of the art tumor surgery and treatment. ACIF Simplicity and large biologic potential. classic ALIF and PLIF Increased biologic potential. wilhelm tell ALIF Anterior surgery. 360 degree stabilization. ostapek LCFRP fibers are aligned to the vertebral body trabecula, providing more graft surface area. Cross struts prevent subsidence and help ensure a patient s best chance to build a lasting viable bone. Modular construction follows spine architecture of the spine. The ostapek VBR connects to evos and flexstaas pedicle fixation. ostapek LCFRP composite struts achieve 4 times the static strength over simple PEEK in the same configuration. This maintains stability yet extends bone graft from 30 to over 50% of cage surface, while optimizing endplate support. Ela and Oscar ACIF are proposed in several versions and simplified instruments accommodate different surgical techniques. ostapek LCFRP composite frees cage design from pointed teeth or pins that can bore into endplates, accelerate subsidence and compromise the biological space for graft. Smooth composite struts engage into a vertebral body s subchondral surface, providing maximum support area, yet with a larger expanse of bone. A gold standard in cage design since 1994, with thousands of cases each year. Using wilhelm tell technology, the spine surgeon restores balance, stabilizes against sheer, all from one anterior approach and without the requirement of anterior plating. ostapek composite anchor struts provided support, ensure large bone graft ports and accommodate a high angle screw to create maximum stabilization. An established treatment for some types of spondylolisthesis, the wilhelm tell leaves posterior muscles untouched.
7 coligne instruments Composite surgery designed. Through a coligne instrument, surgery passes from the surgeon to the patient. Each must be built for the philosophy of treatment, the specific gesture and for the many hands that rise from different surgical traditions. Instrument design at coligne is a process of continuous renewal, a constant quest for better methods, more effective procedures, and simpler ways.
8 coalliance Participation and exchange. Competence without hierarchy. Assembled from varied fields and cultures, composed of different generations, the coalliance celebrates diversity and shares challenge. Medical and corporate coalliance members regularly meet to discuss, debate, explore and teach each other what has been learned, what might be achieved, in ways perhaps not imagined. There is participation and respect, a feeling of growth and a reaching beyond today s knowledge in order to make things possible for others. coalliance developer sessions, spine surgeons workshops, spine strategy host and guest tours, as well as coalliance encrypted video conferences ensure that experiences are expressed, explored and treatment strategies are improved. coligne know-how and surgical technology are continuously renewed.
