Nexus Spine, a developer of biomechanically-advanced solutions for spinal pathologies, has rolled out its new Stable-C cervical interbody fusion implants with integrated anchoring blades.

The beta launch of the implant is the company’s eighth commercial release from its Tranquil interbody fusion range which also includes ALIF, PLIF, TLIF, Steerable TLIF, DLIF, and standard cervical configurations.

Tranquil is constructed of titanium that has been specially developed utilising patented compliant mechanism principles.

It aims to match the stiffness of the spinal trabecular bone and promote quick stabilisation while reducing the risk of subsidence.

The first beta operation was performed by Kirk Clifford, MD, at Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, earlier this month.

Dr Kirk Clifford said: “Stable-C is an incredibly elegant system. The integrated anchoring blades were easily deployed in one step by simply rotating an instrument that attaches to the inserter.

“I found it to be a big improvement over standard systems that use separate fixating components that add time and fiddle factor to my surgeries.”

Dr Clifford added: “I have been using various configurations of the Tranquil product line for quite some time and have experienced excellent results.

“My patients report early postoperative clinical improvement with radiographs that demonstrate rapid Tranquil integration and dynamic stability. I am excited to add Stable-C into my practice.”

Dr Jeffrey Hoskins, MD of the Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton, Ohio created Stable-C to combine intraoperative ease of use with robust fixation.

Dr Hoskins said: “I believe we accomplished our goals with the recent tweaks we have made to the system.

“The anchoring and deployment design features are a perfect complement to the inherent advantages of the tranquil matrix. I expect my Stable-C patients to do extremely well.”

Nexus Spine creates spinal implants by leveraging compliant mechanism engineering expertise to streamline spinal fusion systems and minimise implant bulk, surgery time, and hospital handling.
