Exactech has begun the full launch of its Acapella One cervical spacer system.
The cervical cage pre-assembled with integrated anchors is designed to enable surgeons to restore disc height, while providing integrated fixation to prevent device migration during anterior cervical spinal fusions.
The Acapella One implants are available in two footprints, six heights and three sagittal profiles, including an anatomic domed design. The overall procedure is simplified by design of the cage is intended to simplify the procedure. According to a company release, the product allows for single-step deployment of both the integrated anchors simultaneously into the vertebral endplates.
Exactech initially announced the pilot launch of the Acapella One device at the North American Spine Society 30th Annual Meeting in 2015. Since then more than 500 implantations have taken place. The continued development of the system includes simplified instrumentation designed to minimise surgical time and instrument processing while still ensuring superior performance.
