The newly released spine implant will build on the success of the original Zimmer DTO System, which connects several other Zimmer devices. The DTO 5.5 consists of a 100 mm cord and a 5.5 mm titanium rod to be contoured to the patient's anatomy.
The transition from fusion to non-fusion within a single implant is designed to preserve segment anatomy and restore posterior disc height, according to the release.
