Xenco Medical has announced the nationwide expansion of the ASC CerviKit, the compact delivery and storage platform for the company’s entirely disposable anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) systems engineered from a durable composite polymer.
The ASC CerviKit includes all of Xenco Medical’s single-use cervical implant families. Designed to address the space constraints of ambulatory surgery centres, the systems in the ASC kit are intended to offer a streamlined approach to the ACDF procedure as single-use, composite polymer cervical implant systems.
The kits are comprised of pre-loaded cervical interbodies and cervical plates, as well as single-use instruments.
With the single-use, composite polymer instrument and implants locked together in the sterile package, the Xenco Medical systems are designed to both increase efficiency in the operating room, and eliminate the internal logistics associated with the autoclave process. According to a company release, Xenco Medical’s single-use spinal systems are “the first polymer-based devices of their kind”.
In addition to cervical interbodies, the ASC CerviKit also stores Xenco Medical’s newly-launched merge cervical plate system, a single-use platform using the company’s Snap-Align technology. The system is designed to allow surgeons to choose whether to attach the plate to the interbody prior to implantation or to connect in situ.
