CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 28 May 2020 - Medacta announced today the first surgery utilizing its recently FDA-cleared Mecta-C Stand Alone platform for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion procedures (ACDF). After obtaining the FDA clearance in March, Mecta-C Stand Alone has also obtained CE marking and approval from Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
The first surgery utilizing Mecta-C Stand Alone was performed by Heldo Gomez, M.D., from Palm Beach Gardens, FL (USA). "The system's modular implant design and simple to use instrumentation offers my patients a dynamic solution for many anatomic variations," stated Dr. Gomez. "This provides me with extreme confidence going into surgery that I will have the right implant configuration for my patients available to meet their specific needs."
Mecta-C Stand Alone is indicated for use from C2 to T1 in skeletally mature patients suffering from degenerative disc disease. It incorporates the benefits of an anterior plate with a versatile screw system, thus requiring no additional fixation. The modular design is an important characteristic of the Mecta-C Stand Alone system, allowing the surgeon to intraoperatively select four plating options to best treat various patient needs and anatomies. The Mecta-C Stand Alone anterior cervical interbody fusion devices are offered in TiPEEK, Medacta's plasma-sprayed titanium coating that provides an added value to improve stability and resistance to migration.
Following the recent TGA approval and CE marking, Mecta-C Stand Alone will be soon introduced in Australia and in several European countries, thus providing global reach to the patient enriching suite of solutions for treatment of numerous spine disorders.
