Nexus Spine launched the Stable-C cervical interbody system for spinal fusions.
The system was designed by Jeffrey Hoskins, MD, of the Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton (Ohio), according to a July 20 news release. It was designed with the goal of combining intraoperative ease of use and robust fixation.
Kirk Clifford, MD, performed the first beta surgery with the system July 12 at Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo.
"The integrated anchoring blades were easily deployed in one step by simply rotating an instrument that attaches to the inserter," Dr. Clifford said in the release. "I found it to be a big improvement over standard systems that use separate fixating components that add time and fiddle factor to my surgeries."
