ST. LOUIS, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ulrich medical USA, Inc. today announced the U.S. market release of the neon™ Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic (OCT) System.  neon OCT is a low profile, German-engineered spinal implant system that is designed for the surgical stabilization and fixation of the posterior regions of the spine.  

The neon OCT System includes hybrid occipital plate/rods and straight rods, self-drilling and self-tapping screws, cannulated screws, screw-to-rod connectors, spacers, hooks and rod-to-rod crosslinks.  As an added benefit, the neon System utilizes a unique 4.5mm titanium alloy rod over market-standard 3.0/3.5mm rods.
