Zavation Medical Products introduced Expandable Anterior Lumbar and Lateral Lumbar Plates designed for supplemental fixation.
The Anterior Lumbar low-profile plate design provides a stable construct with the ability to expand and lock at the required length. This plate also includes a ledge feature that provides guidance to properly position and expand the plate on the vertebral body.
The Zavation Z-Span Plate System is implanted via the lateral or anterolateral surgical approach above the bifurcation of the great vessels in the treatment of the lumbar spine, or via the anterior approach below the bifurcation of the great vessels in the treatment of the lumbar and lumbosacral spine.
The Z-Span Plate System is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization as an adjunct to fusion in skeletally mature patients.
