Nexxt Spine announces first implantation of Matrixx corpectomy system


Nexxt Spine has announced the first effective implantation of the Nexxt Matrixx corpectomy system following US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. The corpectomy cage is an intentionally-engineered 3D printed porous titanium implant.

The surgery was performed by Derek Taggard at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, USA on a trauma patient this month.

Commenting on the technology, Taggard said, ““After much anticipation, I am very excited that the Nexxt Matrixx corpectomy implant is now available to the market. I am honoured to have done the first live corpectomy implant. I believe this technology is the quickest path to successful arthrodesis for my patients. The spacious central cavity allows for a large amount of biologic and generous endplate contact; the porosity allows for lateral rapid in-growth as well.”
