Alphatec vertebral fusion system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Alphatec has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA to market its Dynamo Rod System, which allows for 0.75mm of compression and 1.75 degrees of angulation, and features a 5.5mm diameter rod that is pre-contoured for lordosis. It is to be launched in lengths ranging from 65mm to 400mm, allowing for controlled compression, distraction, flexion and extension of vertebrae adjacent to a fusion location, which should enable the patient to have an additional range of motion during the initial healing phase. The Carlsbad, California firm says that the Dynamo promotes load sharing between the vertebral body replacement device and the endplates, while reducing stress on the screw to bone interfaces.
