Zavation Medical Products launched a Cortical Screw, designed for use in the cortical bone as an extension of the Zavation Spinal System.
The device is designed to achieve greater cortical bone purchase with a smaller midline incision when using Cortical Bone Trajectory (CBT). A variety of sizes provides an optimized fit for each patient. It also includes a self-tapping feature on both sides of the tip and a 30-degree variable head angulation. Standard and reduction screw options are offered, and the reduction screw has a "break-off" tab available.
The Zavation Spinal System is intended to immobilize and stabilize spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion to treat acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine.
This expansion of the Zavation Spinal System follows last month's launch of the company's eZspand™ expandable lumbar interbody fusion device.
