MARIETTA, GA (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
Amendia Inc., a leading provider of innovative spinal technologies, is pleased to announce the commercial launch of its new corpectomy device, the inCORPorate™. This latest addition to Amendia’s comprehensive product offering provides surgeons with a safe and versatile vertebral body replacement option to replace a collapsed, damaged or unstable vertebral body.
The inCORPorate™ has been designed to restore the biomechanical integrity of the anterior, middle and posterior column. Made of polyetheretherketone (PEEK), the implant is the solution of choice for surgeons looking to replace a diseased vertebral body and achieve anterior decompression of the spinal cord and neural tissues, while restoring the height of the vertebral body.
“The inCORPorate™ is available for thoracic and lumbar indications,” says Jason Tillett, Vice President of R&D. “The system comes in 2 different footprints, parallel and lordotic and 1mm size increments. In addition, it is designed to provide large surface contact areas to decrease the risk of subsidence, tantalum radiopaque markers to optimize placement and anti-blackout ridges to minimize the risk of migration. The hollow core also allows for large amounts of graft material to facilitate fusion.”
“The launch of the inCORPorate™ VBR System is a key step in offering a full range of technological solutions to surgeons, hospitals and distributors around the country,” says Jeff Smith, CEO. “This launch is another milestone, and continues to strengthen our scientific and business foundations as we continue to grow rapidly and deliver meaningful advances in spine care.”
Amendia will be introducing the inCORPorate™ in Orlando, March 16-18, Booth #409, at the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves (DSPN).
