New anterior cervical interbody system launched in USA


ulrich Medical announced it has expanded its portfolio of devices for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgical procedures with the launch of its new anterior cervical interbody system—the uCerv—on to the USA market.  

According to a company press release, the uCerv system consists of trapezoidal shaped implants that are available in a parallel or lordotic configuration of various heights (5–12mm) in the following sizes: 14×12, 15×13, 17×14 and a specialty XL sizing option of 19×16. All implants in this system are made from radiolucent PEEK Optima material and have a tapered bullet tip, which allows for ease of insertion and distraction. In addition, these implants feature optimal teeth patterns on the superior and inferior surfaces to limit migration and a large central core which allows for the use of maximum bone graft material.  


Erika Laskey, vice president of Sales and Marketing, ulrich medical USA, said: “With the addition of uCerv to our product portfolio for degenerative spine applications, we now offer a complete and superior hardware solution for spinal surgeons who perform ACDF procedures.”
