New internally dynamised anterior cervical plating system features zero-step locking mechanism

Life Spine : 08 February, 2008  (New Product)
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given 510(k) marketing clearance to Life Spine’s Kinetic-SL, a new internally dynamised anterior cervical plating system.
Michael S Butler, Life Spine's president, CEO and founder, said Kinetic's flexibility of design allows surgeons another alternative when performing cervical spine surgery with a dynamic cervical plate system.

'Kinetic-SL represents a new spin on our highly successful Kinetic product,' Butler said. 'Surgeon reaction to our zero-step locking mechanism developed with our Neo SL static plate has been fantastic, and we wanted to expand our offering to add these unique features to our internally dynamised cervical plate offering. We now have an entire family of cervical options to address a wide variety of patient and surgeon needs, including two static anterior cervical plating systems and now two unique internally dynamised cervical plate offerings.'

The plate, with an exceptionally thin profile as well as a narrow plate width (16mm), was created from the clinical need to address small stature patients. Like the original Kinetic, Kinetic-SL features 0-2mm of fully adjustable internal dynamisation per level and an ultra slim pre- lordosed profile. Plate sizes range from 21 to 111mm, in levels one to five.

The Kinetic design allows for generous screw angulation, as well as a large Graft window, a feature that competitive products do not have. Like the company's Neo-SL plate, an integrated lock allows bone screws to be securely fixated without any additional locking components. The self-retaining screw capture mechanism prevents screw backout, while still allowing screw angulation.
