FDA 510(k) clearance has been granted for the SAXXONY posterior cervical thoracic system (Nexxt Spine). The system is designed to stabilise cervical (C1 to C7) and thoracic (T1 to T3) spinal segments via posterior screw fixation in patients with degenerative disease, deformity, tumour, or trauma.
“The SAXXONY system adds a robust posterior complement to our well received anterior cervical fixation offering as we continue to innovate and grow our fusion portfolio,” said Andy Elsbury, Nexxt Spine president.
The offering includes standard and smooth shank screws available in a variety of diameter and length combinations, low profile cross connectors featuring multi-axis adjustability, and various configurations of offset, parallel, and axial connectors. The implant offering is complemented by streamlined instrumentation designed to ease rod placement and facilitate procedural efficiency.
In order to simplify longer complex constructs, the SAXXONY posterior cervical thoracic system has been designed to seamlessly link to the INERTIA pedicle screw system with a variety of 3.5 to 5.5mm or 3.5 to 6.5mm rod-to-rod connectors and transition rods.
