Centinel Spine has expanded its cervical solutions portfolio following the full commercial launch of its FORTOS-C anterior cervical plating system.
The FORTOS-C plate is a titanium anterior cervical fixation system with one of the lowest profile designs on the market, featuring an open plate architecture that enables central visualisation along with graft and anatomical landmark identification, say Centinel Spine.
The plate is designed with pre-contoured lordosis to reduce the need for intra-operative plate bending and has a simple one-step blocking mechanism to simplify the procedure and ease confirmation of screw locking. The plate provides rigid fixation through fixed and variable-angle screws in both self-tapping and self-drilling configurations, add the company.
Centinel Spine’s CEO, Steve Murray, said: “We are proud to expand our cervical solution offering with the introduction of the FORTOS-C cervical plating system. FORTOS-C is the perfect complement to our innovative ACTILIF C FLX interbody technology and advances our mission to have the widest breadth and depth of anterior column spinal fusion and motion preservation solutions.”
Saqib Hasan of Golden State Orthopedics and Spine (Oakland, USA) added: “I have used the FORTOS-C plate and Centinel Spine’s 3D-printed FLX cages consistently for my cervical fusion cases. I am very happy with the different lordotic options available for the interbody cages, as well as the easy insertion. I am also impressed with the FORTOS-C plate, as it allows a large graft window for further reinforcement with bone graft as needed.”
FORTOS-C complements Centinel Spine’s ACTILIF C interbody system, which is available in PEEK and FLX material options. FLX technology is Centinel Spine’s latest interbody device evolution—3D-printed, porous titanium devices with an osteoconductive trabecular scaffold that mimics the structure of trabecular bone. The 3D-printed FLX material technology is available as an option with Centinel Spine’s ACTILIF and STALIF interbody portfolios.
FORTOS-C now joins Centinel Spine’s comprehensive portfolio of cervical solutions, including the ACTILIF C interbody system, STALIF C Integrated Interbody system, ALTOS PCT posterior cervical system, and prodisc C cervical total disc replacement system.
