Stryker Spine is launching the Aero®-C Cervical Stability System, reportedly the only ACDF device to offer uniform compression across the interbody space.
The Aero platform employs an advanced anchor fixation system designed to draw the vertebral bodies toward the implant, creating compressive forces at the implant-to-endplate interface and providing an environment for fusion.
Further, in-line insertion and instrumentation are intended to minimize the potential for instrument impingement, offering a less disruptive approach vs. traditional screw-based ACDF.

Aero-C received FDA 510(k) clearance in December 2015. Other products in the Aero line include Aero-AL, indicated for use in the lumbar spine from an anterior approach, and Aero-LL, designed for a lateral lumbar approach.
