Ulrich medical has announced the US market release of its uCerv titanium spinal implants as an adjunct to its current uCerv PEEK Optima interbody system, which is an existing product used for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgical procedures.
“Spinal implants made from solid titanium alloy can support bone growth at the fusion site by providing proven and reliable structural integrity,” says Ali A Baaj, assistant professor of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, USA. “I like the easy-to-use uCerv instrumentation which incorporates a slim designed inserter that allows for superior visualisation and unimpeded work space at the surgical site.” Baaj went on to say, “This product line also features a beneficial large graft window which allows for the usage of maximum bone graft material and it is available in a wide variety of sizes.”
The uCerv titanium implants have a roughened-surface design with a trapezoidal shape, and are available in parallel or lordotic configurations of various heights in small, medium and large footprints. In addition, these implants feature optimal teeth patterns on the superior and inferior surfaces to limit migration.
