The Aranax™ System represents the latest generation of anterior cervical fixation with an enhanced locking mechanism, low profile features, increased screw angulation and intuitive instrumentation. Indications for the Aranax implant include fusion on one to four contiguous levels of the cervical spine, through an anterior approach (C1-C7 inclusive). The sterile packaging will reduce facility processing costs for hospitals and improve procedure planning. Aranax project team member, neurosurgeon Dr. Brandon Scott stated, "The pre-packaged sterile implants and streamlined instrumentation are both beneficial and convenient. This translates to a direct cost savings for facilities while maintaining continuity of care for patients."
According to the 2015 iData report, approximately 220,000 cervical plating procedures were performed in 2014 in the United States, and the total addressable market for Aranax exceeds $160M in the US. This system will release to a limited list of surgeons in the fourth quarter of 2015, with a full launch following in early 2016.
