Medical device firm Nexxt Spine has commercially introduced its Struxxure anterior cervical plate system into the market.
The company has developed the system based on published papers highlighting studies reporting the incidence of adjacent level ossification (ALO) significantly decreases when the plate-to-disc distance is greater than 5mm from the adjacent level.
Struxxure system includes the widest cephalad or caudal screw angulation within an ultra-low profile anterior cervical plate, which will allow to address the problem of ALO.
Nexxt Spine new product development director Dr Robert Wertz said: "Since our inception, we’ve been dedicated to increasing procedural efficiency and patient outcomes through development of innovative products to treat painful and debilitating spinal pathologies.
"All implants and instruments associated with the Struxxure system have been developed and manufactured in our world-class Noblesville, IN facility."
The company will showcase the Struxxure system at the 83rd Annual American Academy of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Scientific Meeting, which will be held from 2 to 6 May in Washington, DC.
