ulrich medical USA has released the neon3 posterior cervical system, which is intended to provide immobilisation and stabilisation of spinal segments as an adjunct to fusion or for a number of acute and chronic instabilities of the cervical and thoracic spine.
Tom Carter, senior manager of Spinal Systems, ulrich medical USA, says, “This universal system allows surgeons to address a full range of cervical pathologies, including the most complex of applications with…robust implant technology that is delivered with user-friendly instrumentation.”
The neon3 product features a top loading “tulip” style screw design (available for both open and percutaneous applications) with a comprehensive assortment of screw choices including polyaxial cannulated and non-cannulated screws, favoured angle options and fenestrated screws in multiple configurations: lateral mass, long shaft, thoracic, pedicle, and transarticular designs. In addition, the system offers a wide range of screw lengths (10-55mm) and diameters (3.5, 4, 4.5, 5.5mm). Rods are available in either titanium alloy or cobalt chromium (CoCr) and they feature a diameter of 4mm in straight and pre-bent designs. In addition to screws and rods, the system also includes a variety of additional implants.
