Medical device company Nexxt Spine, founded in Indiana ten years ago, manufactures its own product line of spinal implants and instrumentation. This month, the company announced that its NEXXT MATRIXX Stand Alone Cervical System has officially received 510(k) clearance from the FDA.
Nexxt Spine first invested in metal 3D printing in 2017 – specifically the Concept Laser technology from GE Additive. The company increased its investment in GE Additive’s metal AM technology this spring with the installation of its fourth and fifth Mlab 100R systems, and also uses Concept Laser’s metal 3D printing to create this latest anticipated line extension of its NEXXT MATRIXX family.
The Stand Alone Cervical System includes the surgeon-friendly precision, and excellent design qualities, that are part and parcel of the company’s NEXXT MATRIXX brand of 3D printed porous titanium interbodies.
This particular system is fabricated on GE Additive’s Mlab 3D printer. It is available in multiple screws and footprints, and ensures one-step locking, in addition to several options for drills and inserters as well.
“The NEXXT MATRIXX® Stand Alone Cervical System is a stand-alone anterior cervical interbody fusion system intended for use as an adjunct to fusion at one or two contiguous levels (C2-T1) in skeletally mature patients for the treatment of degenerative disc disease (defined as discogenic neck pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies). These patients should have received at least six weeks of non-operative treatment prior to treatment with the device,” a brochure about the system states. “The NEXXT MATRIXX® Stand Alone Cervical System is to be used with autograft bone graft and/or allogeneic bone graft composed of cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone and implanted via an open, anterior approach. The NEXXT MATRIXX® Stand Alone Cervical System is intended to be used with the bone screw fixation provided and requires no additional fixation.”
Nexxt Spine is known for combining quality manufacturing with design expertise to create high quality spinal products with unique features. Now, the company can achieve bone biology relevance, cellular scaffolding, and tailored surface topography in one, which is why it is so pleased to introduced its Stand Alone Cervical System to the market.
The system marries the benefits and functionality of a cervical interbody and anterior cervical plate into one product. Designed to reduce the amount of soft tissue damage and irritation, these 3D printed cervical implants come in multiple footprints and heights in order to better fit each individual patient.
“This enhancement of the NEXXT MATRIXX portfolio was the next natural progression for Nexxt Spine. With patient care always top of mind, we strive to develop end products that surgeons prefer and hardware patients can count on. Our Stand Alone Cervical is no exception and will showcase the propensity of NEXXT MATRIXX technology to facilitate the body’s natural power of cellular healing for fortified fusion,” said Nexxt Spine President Andy Elsbury.
Current distributor partners of Nexxt Spine can now pre-order the NEXXT MATRIXX Stand Alone Cervical System.
