TTA RAPID® Implants

The manufacture of TTA RAPID® cages has only been made possible with advances in materials and manufacturing technology.

Through a sophisticated, state of the art 3D printing process, a very porous honeycomb titanium lattice with a modulus similar to that of cancellous bone is generated permitting very rapid bony ingrowth to occur. Titanium is also very biocompatible, MRI compatible, and typically needs to be inoculated with 10 times as many infectious units for an implant-associated infection to develop when compared to stainless steel.
The lattice found in the TTA RAPID® cages is bound on 4 sides by an anatomically shaped, rigid shell of the same material with one side carrying lugs with screw holes in them. With the lattice, cage, and screw lugs being one piece, the cages are very stable in situ.
The constructs are so stable that auxiliary implants such as plates, wires, forks and staples are rarely indicated. This has a number of benefits:
  • Reduced morbidity and biological cost that may be associated with the dissection and placement of additional implants.
  • Reduced potential for cold conduction with superficially sited metallic implants.
  • Fewer additional holes created in the tibial diaphysis which may contribute to crack propagation and failure of the tibial shaft.
  • Metals of different electro-potentials are avoided in the same construct. Theoretically this reduces the potential for galvanic corrosion to occur (all components are titanium).
  • Simplified inventory management.
  • Potential time savings in the placement of implants.

Dodecahedron structure of the TTA RAPID® Cages


Why dodecahedron?

Advantages of dodecahedral implant structure

Dodecahedron is a polyhedral shape that has 12 pentagonal faces. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in using dodecahedron shapes in orthopedic implants due to their unique properties, such as:
  • Enhanced Biocompatibility: Dodecahedron shapes provide increased surface area and improved cell attachment, which can enhance biocompatibility and promote better bone growth and osseointegration (the process of bone formation around an implant).
  • Increased Strength: The dodecahedron structure has a high volume-to-surface area ratio, which makes it more resistant to deformation and wear. This makes it ideal for orthopedic implants that require strength and durability.
  • Improved Osseointegration: The dodecahedron shape provides a larger surface area for bone growth, which can improve osseointegration and reduce implant failure rates.
  • Reduced Stress Shielding: The dodecahedron shape can reduce stress shielding by distributing stress more evenly, which can promote healthier bone growth and reduce the risk of implant failure.
