JACKSON, Miss., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Zavation Medical Products ("Zavation" or the "Company"), an innovative designer and manufacturer of high-quality spinal implants, instruments, MIS procedural kits, and biologics headquartered in Flowood, MS, announced the launch of the Cortical Screw, a screw designed for use in the cortical bone as an extension of the Zavation Spinal System.
The Cortical Screw is the latest addition to Zavation's portfolio. The cortical screw is designed to achieve greater cortical bone purchase with a smaller midline incision when using Cortical Bone Trajectory (CBT). It comes in a variety of sizes to provide an optimized fit for each patient. It also includes a self tapping feature on both sides of the tip and a 30 degree variable head angulation. This optimized fit allows for enhancement of structural stability while the thread design maximizes screw purchase. Standard and reduction screw options are offered and the reduction screw has a "break-off" tab available.
Dr. Graham Calvert, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at Mississippi Sports Medicine, stated, "I am very excited about the new cortical screw technology from Zavation. With 3 zones of variable thread pitch it is tailor-made for the cortical trajectory. The system is also extremely versatile with 4.5, 5.0, and 5.5mm diameter offerings. Overall it is the most compact, durable, and easy to implant cortical system on the market. I have been utilizing for over a year now with one hundred plus cases and have had no hardware failure."
