K2M, a developer of minimally invasive procedures, has introduced its Chesapeake Anterior-Lumbar.
Chesapeake Anterior-Lumbar is built with a biocompatible Peek polymer and titanium which allows for anterior stabilization and fixation with a zero-profile design.
The system uses the company’s Anterior Insertion Ramp which provides parallel distraction and controlled threaded insertion.
Upon the insertion of the implant, each screw head forms an autogenic lock by utilizing the company’s tifix Locking Technology.
K2M president and CEO Eric Major said the Chesapeake Anterior-Lumbar Stabilization System is used for treating Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD), as well as more complex pathologies.
