    The TM Ardis Interbody System implant is a convex, straight TLIF or PLIF device for interbody fusion of the anterior column of the spine. TM Ardis is designed for fusing the adjacent bony surfaces and may be used to replace a disc at one or two contiguous levels in L2-S1. The superior and inferior surfaces of the device are textured to provide increased stability and convex to conform to the vertebral endplates. The device also has two slots on the posterior end to mate with the insertion instrument. The TM Ardis device is wholly comprised of Trabecular Metal Porous Tantalum. Surgical instrumentation for use with the proposed system will be fabricated from surgical grade stainless steel and other applicable materials.
