Medtronic launches Compact Cornerstone-SR Alliance cervical cage

4th October 2013

Medtronic has introduced a new addition to its Compact Cornerstone-SR platform of cages in Europe.

The CE Mark-approved Compact Cornerstone-SR Alliance is compatible with existing spinal instrumentation and provides a range of new features such as four titanium fixation spikes, a bevelled edge and a side chamber.

Cervical cages are implants used to treat patients suffering from disc diseases that affect the neck, providing stability during spinal fusion procedures to relieve compression on the spinal cord or nerve roots.

The new product incorporates expertise and knowledge gained by Medtronic through its acquisition of the German company Advanced Medical Technologies last year.

Steve Swinson, Medtronic's vice-president for spinal and biologics in western Europe and Canada, said: "With the addition of the Cornerstone-SR Alliance cage to our cervical Interbody platform, Medtronic continues to answer the surgeon and hospital needs of today."

This follows on from the company's launch of a new customer innovation centre at its Irish site in Galway last month.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801645996-ADNFCR
