SpineCraft launched ASTRA Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic (OCT), a set of implants and instruments for spine stabilization in posterior cervical fusion. The system was developed to address unmet needs in complex posterior spine fixation procedures, revisions and extensions.
ASTRA-OCT comprises a range of screws, connectors and rods that accommodate variations in patient anatomy and surgical techniques. The ability to cross the Cervical Thoracic junction with ASTRA-OCT reduces the number of instrument trays from five to two.
ASTRA-OCT completes the ASTRA Platform that now extends from occiput to pelvis with options for open, MIS techniques and screw augmentation. ASTRA is used in global markets to treat complex spine, revisions and degenerative procedures.
