4WEB Medical this week announced the commercial launch of its Cervical Spine Truss System Integrated Plating Solution (CSTS-IPS).

The first procedures with the device were performed by Dr. Kris Parchuri, an orthopedic spine surgeon at Spine & Orthopedic Specialists in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Dr. Jason Alder, director of spinal surgery at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Frisco, Texas.

CSTS-IPS has a plate that mechanically attaches to the interbody fusion device. This provides robust fixation and a stable environment for fusion. It is indicated for up to two contiguous disc levels.

“4WEB’s new cervical implant with integrated plate provides an easy-to-use alternative to other standalone cervical implants. I was able to place the implant at an adjacent level to a previous multi-level cervical fusion without having to remove any hardware from the original construct,” Alder said in a news release. “The integrated plate provides a more stable construct compared to a traditional standalone implant with screw or anchor fixation.”

4WEB is planning the full commercial launch of its Cervical Spine Truss System with anchor fixation in the third quarter following the CSTS-IPS launch. It is also planning for the initial launch of anchor fixation for Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion devices in early Q4.
