The JAGUAR® LUMBAR I/F CAGE® System is a carbon fiber reinforced polymer implant designed to separate the mechanical and biologic functions of posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). The JAGUAR LUMBAR I/F CAGE System provides a device designed to meet the mechanical requirements of PLIF, and uses autologous cancellous bone, the best possible bone for healing. The implant has a modulus of elasticity close to that of human cortical bone, minimizing stress shielding. The cage is radiolucent so that bone healing can be assessed by normal radiographic methods.
The JAGUAR LUMBAR I/F CAGE System is indicated for an open posterior approach using autogenous bone graft in patients with Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) at one or two levels from L2-S1 whose condition requires the use of interbody fusion combined with posterolateral fusion (360 fusion) and posterior pedicle screw fixation. These patients may have had a previous non-fusion spinal surgery at the involved spinal level(s).
DDD is defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies.
