PLAINSBORO, N.J., May 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today announced the introduction of the new MAYFIELD® 2 system for rigid cranial fixation. The MAYFIELD 2 system will be featured at the Integra LifeSciences exhibition booth at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting, May 2-6, 2015, in Washington, D.C.
"MAYFIELD is among the most trusted brands in cranial stabilization, and Integra is very pleased to offer continued innovations to the MAYFIELD cranial stabilization product line started by Dr. Frank H. Mayfield, over 40 years ago," said Robert T. Davis, Jr., President of Integra Specialty Surgical Solutions. "Integra's new MAYFIELD 2 system has enhanced features that make the clamp easier to use and allow the surgeon to more precisely position the patient's head to prepare for delicate neurosurgical procedures."
The MAYFIELD 2 system consists of a new Skull Clamp, along with a new Base Unit. The MAYFIELD 2 Skull Clamp is composed of a new stronger and lighter weight material. It includes an increased amount of off-set ratcheting teeth for more precise closure, an I-beam for smoother closure, and a new dual button release for easier removal. The MAYFIELD 2 Base Unit features a powder-coated finish, which allows automatic washing, and a swivel adaptor that does not require any additional tools for adjustment.
