CastleLoc-C Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is intended for use as an interbody fusion cage device and is to be used with supplemental fixation. The devices are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to accommodate anatomical variations in different vertebral levels and/or patient anatomy. The devices are made of PEEK-OPTIMA® LTl with marker pins made of titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V ELI).CastleLoc-C Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System devices are designed for an anterior approach.
The design rationale for the CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is to offer surgeons an attractive alternative to current methods of treating degenerative disc disease in the cervical spine.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System uses a simple, easy-to-implant threaded cage, which is indicated for single-level ACDFs.
Its tapered design provides for optimal restoration of normal cervical lordosis.
The wide range of sizes accommodates a large range of cervical anatomies.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Cage is implanted via an open anterior approach. The versatile, straightforward instrument designs allow for precise sizing of the disc space and end plate preparation. A series of sequential, color-coded instruments guide the surgeons through the procedure in a simple, intuitive manner.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Cage must be used with supplemental fixation to increase the primary stability of the implant, whenever necessary.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Cage is radiolucent allowing visualization of bone growth through the implant and the success of fusion. The bio-compatibility and mechanical qualities of PEEK-Optima® LTI have now been largely recognized for interbody applications. PEEK-Optima® LTI has elasticity close to that of bone so that there is no graft weight-bearing problem, allowing a biomechanical consistency between two spine segments.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is implanted using a reproducible operating technique. As soon as they are placed, the serrated profile of the implant ensures its self-retaining properties, until fusion takes place.
CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is indicated for use in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) of the cervical spine with accompanying radicular symptoms at one disc level. DDD is defined as discogenic pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient’s history and radiographic studies.CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is used to facilitate interbody fusion in the cervical spine at the C3 to C7 disc levels using autograft bone. CastleLoc-C Anterior Cervical Interbody Fusion Cage System is to be used with supplemental fixation. Patients should have at least six (6) weeks of non-operative treatments prior to treatment with an intervertebral cage.
