Expands Portfolio to Include Complete Hardware Solutions for ACDF Spine Surgery

LOUIS, MO (July 16, 2013) – ulrich medical USA, Inc., today announced the U.S. market release of  the  uCerv  Interbody System which is a spinal implant device used for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgical procedures (C2-­C7).

The uCerv System consists of trapezoidal shaped implants that are available in a parallel or lordotic configuration of various heights (5mm-­12mm) in the following sizes: 14×12, 15×13, 17×14 and a specialty XL sizing option of 19×16. All implants in this system are made from radiolucent PEEK OPTIMA® material and have a tapered bullet tip which allows for ease of insertion and distraction. In addition, these implants feature optimal teeth patterns on the superior and inferior surfaces to limit migration and a large central core which allows for the use of maximum bone graft material.
