LOS ANGELESSept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — 4WEB Medical, the industry leader in 3D printed implant technology, announced today at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting that the company has entered into an exclusive partnership with both TeDan Surgical Innovations and Lattus Spine, LLC to market a turnkey, best in class, Total Lateral Solution.

“Today is a truly exciting day for 4WEB as we establish a premier market position with these game changing partnerships,” said Jessee Hunt, 4WEB Medical President and CEO.  “The combination of our Truss Implant Technology and the Extreme Lateral access solution offered by TeDan and Lattus, address two major components of a Total Lateral Solution that is poised to make a meaningful impact on lateral spine clinical outcomes.”

The Extreme Lateral (XL) Access platform was developed to be the most user-friendly retractor system on the market. This was accomplished by integrating proprietary design elements that mitigate performance characteristics that surgeons find problematic in competitive retractors.  While TeDan will continue to market other surgical systems and fulfill contractual obligations to its existing customers, the company will no longer manufacture & distribute its flagship XL3 retractor.  Going forward, the company’s primary focus will be the advancement of 4WEB’s Lateral Spine Truss System™ through the continued development of the Lattus XL15 retractor.

“The optimized ergonomics of the XL platform allows the surgeon to focus on implant technology rather than the access portion of the procedure,” said Danny Fishman, President of TeDan.  “After analyzing the lateral market, we believe 4WEB’s Truss Implant Technology provides the best in class implant offering necessary to be competitive with the market leaders in lateral surgery.  We are thrilled to be exclusive partners with 4WEB in our common goal to provide an industry leading Total Lateral Solution.”

4WEB’s proprietary Truss Implant Technology™ mitigates the chance of subsidence and leverages mechanobiology to stimulate an osteogenic response that facilitates the healing process in spine fusion procedures. The 4WEB Total Lateral Solution combines the most innovative implant design and access solution to successfully compete with well-established leaders in the lateral spine market.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions.

4WEB Medical is an implant device company founded in 2008 in Dallas, Texas. Thirty years of research in topological dimension theory led to the discovery of a novel geometry, the 4WEB, that can be used as a building block to create high-strength, lightweight web structures. The company leveraged this breakthrough along with cutting-edge 3D printing technology to develop 4WEB Medical’s proprietary truss implant platform. The 4WEB Medical product portfolio for spine includes the Cervical Spine Truss System, the Anterior Spine Truss System, the Posterior Spine Truss System, and the Lateral Spine Truss System. 4WEB is actively developing truss implant designs for knee, hip, trauma and patient specific orthopedic procedures.
