Vertebration's XYcor spine implant
This article was originally published in Clinica
Vertebration minimally-invasive XYcor spinal implant is designed to restore and maintain biomechanical integrity in the thoracolumbar spine following vertebrectomy or corpectomy in patients with spinal tumours or fractures. The device is an expandable implant, giving surgeons an extremely low-profile solution to the anatomic constraints of minimally-invasive surgery, said the Powell, Ohio firm. For insertion, it requires one-half the intradiscal entry point, but once deployed has a footprint comparable to traditional anterior interbody/vertebral body replacement devices.
