Providence Medical Technology has announced the commercial launch of its new Cavux cervical cage-L and Dtrax spinal system-L.

The Cavix Cervical Cage-L is an intervertebral cage made of solid titanium alloy with a large graft window and proprietary subtractive surface treatment technology. It is packaged sterile and supplied pre-loaded on a disposable delivery instrument. The Dtrax spinal system-L is a single-use, disposable set of surgical instruments designed for cervical fusion and compatible with Cavux cervical cage-L.

“I found the delivery of this new cage to be easier and more efficient than other options currently available for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF),” says Kris Siemionow of the University of Illinois, Chicago, USA, after performing the first commercial use of the device. “The instruments in the new Dtrax spinal system-L allowed me to deliver the device with fewer steps and in less time than the typical ACDF [procedure],” he adds.

The Cavux cervical cage-L is indicated for use in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine (C3-C7) with accompanying radicular symptoms at one disc level. Devices are intended to be used with autogenous bone graft and supplemental fixation, such as an anterior plating system.
