RTI Surgical has announced the full market launch of two new spine systems, the MaxFuse vertebral body replacement system and the Aspect anterior cervical plate system. The company states that both systems are designed for use in spinal fusion and are currently available for US distribution.
A press release reports that the MaxFuse system is used to replace a diseased vertebral body, resected or excised for the treatment of tumours, to achieve anterior decompression of the spinal cord and neural tissues in the thoracolumbar spine. It adds that the device also aids in restoring the height of a collapsed vertebral body. The system is made from PEEK-OPTIMA.
The Aspect System is an anterior cervical plate system designed to meet the varying clinical needs of surgeons performing anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedures. The system is used for anterior cervical fixation for degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, deformities or curvatures, tumour, pseudoarthrosis and failed previous fusion indications.
“The MaxFuse vertebral body replacement system and the Aspect anterior cervical plate system are two exciting new additions to our spine portfolio,” said Brian K Hutchison, RTI Surgical president and chief executive officer.
