NuVasive today launched its C360 cervical spine portfolio with its Anterior Cervical Plating system.
The system features a thin plate measuring 1.6mm and is designed to reduce common postoperative complications like dysphagia, malalignment and adjacent level ossification to allow surgeons to customize treatment to patient needs.
“The unveiling of the C360 portfolio reflects NuVasive’s commitment to delivering innovative technology for the anterior and posterior cervical spine designed to improve the quality of care even in the most established area of the spine,” executive VP Massimo Calafiore said in a news release. “As the leader in spine technology innovation, NuVasive saw an opportunity to procedurally integrate technology to support the cervical spine—as it did in the lateral market with X360—to optimize the surgeon experience and advance care in the operating room. The launch of C360 is key to our long-term strategy and represents a significant opportunity for growth, as cervical spine procedures comprise an approximately $2.6 billion segment of the global spine market.”
The system also features three plate profiles for one and two levels with optimized plate stiffness for each surgical level to support construct stability; a wide option of implant length for unique patient anatomies and a range of advanced screw offerings with integrated locking covers for better screw placement and locking accuracy.
“NuVasive has created the single best anterior cervical system on the market with a comprehensive portfolio that allows surgeons to address different pathological needs,” Todd Albert, surgeon-in-chief emeritus at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, said. “Key to this portfolio are the various anterior cervical plate profiles and sizes, that combined with the variety of interbodies, allows surgeons to customize their treatment to meet the needs of patients.”
