Atlas Spine introduced the HiJAK SA Expandable Cervical Stand-Alone Interbody, the company’s second first-to-market expandable system in 18 months, following launch of the HiJak AC Expandable Cervical Interbody Fusion Device.
HiJAK SA was developed to restore proper sagittal alignment when addressing spinal deformities during anterior cervical fusion. The new device leverages the design and clinical success of the HiJAK AC platform. Both HiJAK AC and HiJAK SA are the market’s first and only cervical implant systems to provide intra-operative ability and mechanical advantage to adjust the height and lordosis specific to the patient’s anatomy and surgical needs.
HiJAK SA incorporates an integrated low-profile plate that improves screw access, screw-to-bone purchase and overall construct integrity as compared to current stand-alone devices.
“We’re approaching two years of very positive clinical results with our HiJAK AC expandable interbody, so the merits of the technology have well been validated at this point,” said Matt Baynham, Atlas Spine’s CEO.
