FLORENCE, S.C., Jan. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DeGen Medical announced the launch of its cervical spine implant, Hyper-C™ Anterior Cervical Plate System. The Hyper-C™ system is an anterior intervertebral fixation device that is designed to aid in stabilizing the cervical spine. The first anterior cervical fusion with Hyper-C™ implants was performed by Dr. Daniel Williams at First Health Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, North Carolina
"The short, low profile anterior cervical plate offered by DeGen Medical decreases the risk of adjacent level degeneration post-operatively*," says Dr. Williams, "The bone screws can angulate to accommodate for placement near the edge of endplate with great purchase. The small width of the plate with large graft window allows for complete visualization of surrounding structures and perfect placement."
The Hyper-C™ Anterior Cervical Plate System offers:
- Plates in levels 1 thru 5 in addition to multiple lengths. Single level plate comes in 1mm increments.
- Bone screws in 4.0mm, 4.25mm, and 4.6mm diameters from 10 to 20mm in length. Fixed or variable bone screw choices as well as self-drilling or self-tapping options
