Integra introduces interbody cervical fixation system.
Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation has introduced the Zuma-C Anterior Cervical Fixation System, the first integrated plate and interbody cervical device.
The new Zuma design is based on the original Zuma platform, which is used in the anterior lumbar spine, and it is available in a variety of implant sizes. The Zuma-C features color-coded instruments that can be used in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, a surgical procedure to remove a herniated or degenerative neck disc. The System also has a low-profile anterior fixation plate and a radiolucent interbody; the short articulating plate allows for optimal screw placement in bone and provides a favorable biomechanical environment, according to the company.
"Integra has a long history of integrating companies to drive growth," said Brian Larkin, global president, Spine and Orthobiologics, and head of Strategic Development for Integra. "We plan to continue this tradition in spine."
Integra is headquartered in Plainsboro, N.J.
