DragonTail™

Simplifying Endplate Preparation to Maximize Delivery of Bone Graft

Coming Soon

Endplate Preparation System
DragonTail™ offers a unique, single pass instrument that allows a 120 degree arc of endplate preparation and multiple tip options that allows increased access to the contralateral disk space.

THE DragonTail DEVICE DOES NOT HAVE 510K CLEARANCE AT THIS TIME

THE PROBLEM

Poor endplate preparation has been implicated in the failure of interbody fusion. This is especially challenging in MIS procedures.

Even with exhaustive, time consuming preparation, the ability to reach all quadrants of the disc space remains elusive.

Fusion Failure from poor end plate preparation

MIS endplate prep leaves residual material that can’t be reached…Enter the DragonTail…COMING SOON

THE SOLUTION: DRAGONTAIL

Coming Soon

Reach the Unreachable, add more more bone graft and further improve interbody fusion rate.

WHAT IS IT?

DragonTail description

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Allows single pass debridement of disc space with MIS or Open technique

3D PRINTED OSSEOINTEGRATIVE SURFACE

Diamond lattice structure: Pore size (600 μm), porosity (65%), and structure facilitate bone ingrowth*

* “Effect of pore size on bone ingrowth into porous titanium implants fabricated by additive manufacturing: An in vivo experiment”, Taniguchi et. al.

KG 2 Implant with 3D-printed surface topography

Watch: KG 2 Optional Coverplate

OPTIONAL COVERPLATE

  • Prevents flowable graft material from exiting the disc space through the KG 2
  • 3D printed Ti implant which is contained in the KG 2 tray. It is inserted and deployed per surgeon preference.
