Surgalign relaunched a new generation of its CervAlign anterior cervical plate for anterior cervical discectomy and fusions.
The CervAlign system was first introduced in 2019, according to a July 20 news release. Its plate has a 2.2 millimeter minimum profile with a locking design to minimize tissue disruptions. It can be used for one- to five-level anterior cervical fusions.
"We took the past year to evaluate the needs of the market and we are excited to bring the CervAlign plate back as we continue to drive better patient outcomes," Terry Rich, president and CEO of Surgalign, said in the release. "While this ultimately hindered our 2021 results, it was the prudent move and in the best interests of our customers and patients who rely on our technology."
