Engineered to help the effects of Cervical Disc Degeneration, the M6 Artificial Cervical Disc provides a unique design which offers the same qualities as a natural human disc and allows for the most natural motion possible. Orthofix Announces FDA Approval of the M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc to Treat Patients with Cervical Disc Degeneration The specialist design by Spinal Kinetics means the M6 is the world’s only artificial disc with an integrated artificial polycarbonate urethane nucleus and a woven polyethylene fibre annulus. With these combined technologies, the M6 offers the most natural freedom of movement within the patient’s neck and allows for a controlled range in all 6 degrees of motion: • Vertical Translation • Lateral Translation • Anterior and Posterior Translation • Axial Rotation • Lateral Bend • Flexion Extension The artificial nucleus is made from Viscoelastic polymer which is designed to simulate the native nucleus and allow for the physiological axial compression to enable a physiological centre of rotation. The artificial annulus is made from an Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene (UHWMPE) fibre material which is designed to simulate the native annulus & its performance and provide controlled physiologic range of motion in all planes and axes. The M6 also features two outer plates made from a strong and lightweight titanium with keels to help secure the disc into the bone of the vertebral body. The plates are coated with a titanium plasma spray which helps to promote bone growth into the metal plates and offers long-term fixation and stability in the bone.
The CLIA Spinal Cage range is manufactured from PEEK with “tell tales”, supplied in 25mm lengths, with 4° and 8° of lordosis available, depending on Surgeon preference, and in height sizes 8mm to 14mm. These Cages are designed to allow maximum area for graft containment to help to ensure fusion. The graft containment cavity is ideally suited for use with our range of bone grafting products. The spinal cage range comes in 3 variations depending on the area of the spine:
The Titamesh Cage range comes in two variations associated with Cervical and Lumbar - Titamesh-C and Titamesh-L. The cage is designed in such a way to provide superior rigid anterior fixation for spinal fusion. The device itself is manufactured using state of the art 3D printing techniques, using only the highest grade Titanium. The printing process ensures that each cage has a consistent macro/micro porous structure, so as to allow effective boney fusion. The cage can be used standalone, as it has incorporate spiked keels on both endplates. With simple, yet effective instrumentation, the Titamesh Cage allows for faster surgery and placement. Implants come in a range of design options, either anatomical or flat. They also come in a range of endplate sizes and heights.
The MediExpand is a one or multi-segmental corpectomy device designed to reconstruct the cervical spine. The implant has an adjustable size increase system which can be adapted to suit the anatomical condition of the patient. Its innovative design reduces the risk of sinking adjacent vertebral bodies and secures anchoring in the adjoining endplates. Featuring an open design the mediExpand offers excellent visibility of the dura during insertion and provides direct access areas for freshening unaffected endplate areas. The large surface area is ideal for bony fusion and offers optimal space for filling up with spongiosa, whilst following the 'guide-rail' principle. The anatomical design provides the reconstruction of the lordotic profile with simple repositioning of the implant by reversing the distraction and allows for individual treatment due to the ability to choose exact height settings.
