BENGAL® Stackable Cage System

Division: Spine
Category: Thoracolumbar

The BENGAL® Stackable Cage System offers versatility in footprint options (three are available), height options (18 to 66 mm in 2-mm increments) and lordotic angle options. The cages are available in monolithic (one piece) and stackable pieces.

The BENGAL Stackable Cage System instruments include the lordotic vertebral body distractors as well as a new caliper to assist in determining height selection.

The Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) material of the BENGAL Stackable Cage System creates a cage design allowing more bone graft within the cage and for the cage to be a more load sharing device.

Indications for Use


The BENGAL Stackable Cage System is indicated for use in the thoracolumbar spine (i.e., T1 to L5) to replace a diseased vertebral body resected or excised for the treatment of tumors, to achieve anterior decompression of the spinal cord and neural tissues, and to restore the height of a collapsed vertebral body.

The BENGAL Stackable Cage System is also indicated for treating fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine.

The BENGAL Stackable Cage System is designed to restore the biomechanical integrity of the anterior, middle, and posterior spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a prolonged period.

The BENGAL Stackable Cage System is intended for use with DePuy Spine supplemental internal fixation.



  1. Use of this system is contraindicated when there is active systemic infection, infection localized to the site of the proposed implantation, or when the patient has demonstrated allergy or foreign body sensitivity to any of the implant materials.
  2. Severe osteoporosis may prevent adequate fixation and thus preclude the use of this or any other orthopaedic implant.
  3. Conditions that may place excessive stresses on bone and implants, such as severe obesity or degenerative diseases, are relative contraindications. The decision whether to use these devices in such conditions must be made by the physician taking into account the risks versus the benefits to the patient.
  4. Use of this implant is relatively contraindicated in patients whose activity, mental capacity, mental illness, alcoholism, drug abuse, occupation, or lifestyle may interfere with their ability to follow postoperative restrictions and who may place undue stresses on the implant during bony healing and may be at a higher risk of implant failure.
