MedCAD announced FDA 510(k) market clearance and launch of AccuPlate® Patient-Specific Plates for mandibular reconstructive surgery.
AccuPlate Patient-Specific Plates are used to stabilize bone after an osteotomy or traumatic event with or without bone grafts. The design of each plate is based on the patient's scanned anatomical data in consultation with MedCAD and the surgeon, and milled out of pure, implant-grade titanium. Due to the patient-matched design of AccuPlate, plate bending is not needed, therefore saving time in the operating room and optimizing surgical outcomes. AccuPlate is uniquely designed to meet the needs of each patient and surgeon through a customizable mandible plating solution.
In tandem with MedCAD’s AccuPlan System 510(k), AccuPlate benefits from the entire surgical planning experience with guided fixation holes, osteotomies and positioning, as well as patient-specific design and comprehensive surgical planning. For example, surgeons are able to prescribe features like fixation hole placement and plate thickness to achieve their planned patient outcomes relative to graft placement in fibula free flap mandibular reconstruction. AccuPlate design specifications are then optimized to work with guides and splints to deliver a Custom Surgical Solution.
AccuPlate market clearance brings customers an entirely new product line for patient-specific fixation plating. As an innovator of patient-matched medical devices, MedCAD continues to build on the power and flexibility of the AccuPlan System.
