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.
