Medacta Announces FDA Clearance for Mecta-C Stand Alone Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Device
CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 06 March 2020 - Medacta is proud to announce the clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Mecta-C Stand Alone platform for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion procedures (ACDF). Mecta-C Stand Alone is indicated for use from C2 to T1 in skeletally mature patients suffering from degenerative disc disease.
The platform incorporates the benefits of an anterior plate with a versatile screw system, thus requiring no additional fixation. The modular design is an important characteristic of the Mecta-C Stand Alone system, allowing the surgeon to intraoperatively select four plating options - Flush, Trio, Hybrid and Quattro - to best treat various patient needs and anatomies. Each option allows for either a locking screw or lag screw feature, and includes an easy-to-use locking mechanism that provides surgeons with unique intraoperative versatility.
The Mecta-C Stand Alone anterior cervical interbody fusion devices are offered in TiPEEK, Medacta's plasma-sprayed titanium coating that provides an added value to improve stability and increase the migration resistance.
Mecta-C Stand Alone is an indication-specific interbody fusion device which enriches the suite of 360° cervical solutions to provide a treatment to numerous cervical spine disorders.
