US-based medical device firm Centinel Spine has commercially introduced its FORTOS-C Anterior Cervical Plating System, expanding its offering for cervical fusion and mobility preservation.

According to the firm, the FORTOS-C plate is a titanium anterior cervical fixation device with one of the lowest profile designs available.

It has an open plate architecture that allows for central visibility as well as graft and anatomical landmark identification.

The plate includes a pre-contoured lordosis to reduce intraoperative plate bending and offers rigid fixation through fixed and variable-angle screws in both self-tapping and self-drilling configurations.

It also has a simple one-step blocking mechanism to streamline the operation and make it easier to check screw locking.

Centinel Spine CEO Steve Murray said: “We are proud to expand our cervical solution offering with the introduction of the FORTOS-C cervical plating system.

“FORTOS-C is the perfect complement to our innovative ACTILIF C FLX interbody technology and advances our mission to have the widest breadth and depth of anterior column spinal fusion and motion preservation solutions.”

The ACTILIF C interbody system from Centinel Spine, which comes in PEEK and FLX material variants, is complemented by FORTOS-C.

Centinel Spine’s FLX technology, which consists of 3D-printed, porous titanium devices with an osteoconductive trabecular scaffold that resembles the structure of trabecular bone, is the most recent interbody device advancement.

The ACTILIF and STALIF interbody portfolios from Centinel Spine both provide advanced 3D-printed FLX material technology as an option.

FORTOS-C is now a part of Centinel Spine’s array of cervical treatments which includes the ACTILIF C interbody system, STALIF C Integrated Interbody system, ALTOS PCT posterior cervical system, and prodisc C Cervical Total Disc Replacement system.

Earlier this month, the company received FDA PMA approval for 3 cervical Total Disc Replacement (TDR) devices.
