The BENGAL® Cervical Interbody System is a radiolucent carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) cage that meets the structural requirements of anterior column support, while optimizing the fusion environment through an open, load-sharing design.
The BENGAL System is the radiolucent cervical interbody cage that optimizes the fusion environment because it is made of load-sharing carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) which allows a large graft window.
The BENGAL System is indicated for use as an intervertebral body fusion device in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease (defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient history and radiographic studies) at one level of the cervical spine with accompanying radicular symptoms. Patients should have six weeks of non-operative treatment prior to surgery. BENGAL implants are used to facilitate fusion in the cervical spine (C2-T1) and are placed via an anterior approach using autogenous bone. When used as an interbody fusion device, DePuy Synthes Spine supplemental fixation products may be used.
The BENGAL System is indicated for use in the thoracolumbar spine (i.e., T1-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. This system is also indicated for treating fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine. This 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. When used as a vertebral body replacement device this system is intended for use with DePuy Synthes Spine supplemental internal fixation products.

|Implant teeth||Reduces likelihood of migration in all directions|
|Trapezoid anatomical shape||
Available in parallel and lordotic configurations
Anatomical shape fosters proper sagittal alignment
|Large graft window and lateral openings||
Open design allows for more bone graft inside the implant and greater bone-to-endplate surface contact
Lateral openings facilitate vascularization
