FLORENCE, S.C., Sept. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DeGen Medical has received clearance from the FDA for its first cervical spine implant, Hyper-C™ Anterior Cervical Plate System. The Hyper-C™ system is an anterior intervertebral fixation device that is designed to aid in stabilizing the cervical spine.
"Clinical research has shown that greater than 5mm distance (of the cervical plate) from adjacent discs equates to less adjacent level degeneration post-operatively. The small over-hang of Hyper-C™ plate is an evidence based approach to attain this outcome which may be extremely beneficial for patients in decreasing adjacent level disease*." - Dr. Rakesh Chokshi.
"The super-short Hyper-C™ plate allows for hyper-angulation of bone screws in convergent or divergent orientation. This allows more intraoperative flexibility for primary and revision surgery with existing hardware" – Dr. W. S. (Bill) Edwards Jr.
The Hyper-C™ Anterior Cervical Plate System offers:
- Plates in levels 1 thru 5 in addition to multiple lengths
- Bone screws in 4.0mm, 4.25mm, and 4.6mm diameters
- Fixed or variable bone screw choices as well as self-drilling or self-tapping option
The Hyper-C™ will be available in Q4 of 2015.
