Integra LifeSciences launches anterior cervical plating system


Integra LifeSciences has launched the Cordant anterior cervical plating system to provide temporary stability during spinal fusion procedures for patients suffering from disc disease or trauma.

The Cordant anterior cervical plate system features a narrow hour-glass plate design, which provides lateral graft visualisation and potentially reduces the amount of tissue retraction required for implantation. This plate design may provide a better fit for smaller stature patients. The novel tri-cam locking mechanism and instrumentation provide a streamlined approach to anterior cervical fusion. The screwdriver handle is ergonomically designed with three flats that are orientated to the three flats on the locking screw head, providing easy alignment and locking confirmation, limiting uncertainty with simple innovative design.

“Surgeons need options to accommodate a broad range of patient anatomy,” said Brian Larkin, global president, Spine and Orthobiologics, and head of Strategic Development for Integra. “We are now better equipped to meet their needs by offering three anterior cervical plates.”
