The ESP disc prosthesis is made of 2 titanium alloy end-plates and an elastomeric cushion. The spikes on the end-plates outer surfaces improve primary fixation. The combination of a hydroxyapatite (HA) coating on top of a T40 rough surface are considered as one of the best existing coating. The titanium alloy used for the end plates allows clear medical imaging and guarantees good bony fixation over time.
The development of the ESP disc range originally came from Professor Roy Camille, from La Pitié Salpétrière Teaching Hospital in Paris (France). After inventing the pedicle screw which became the gold standard for Spine fusions, Pr. Roy Camille started to work on analysing the natural disc properties and designed a prosthesis to restore these.
Both CP-ESP and LP-ESP belong to the 3rd generation of disc replacements. Their specific monobloc design resulting from over a decade development allows them mimic the properties of natural discs. They provide movements in all directions without any friction and without any risks of debris production nor dislocation.
