Zavation Launches Facet Screw and Sacroiliac (SI) Screw Systems
By Admin | August 22, 2018
The Zavation Facet Screw system is a permanent implant device made from a cobalt chrome alloy that is implanted surgically from the posterior approach. The potentially minimally invasive system serves as a fusion and fixation system- all in one. The device is intended to provide mechanical support and stability to the implanted level until biologic fusion is achieved. Static and dynamic testing demonstrated that the Zavation Facet system is two times stronger than the predicate.
The Zavation SI System is designed to be a complete fixation system to stabilize the sacroiliac joint. The system is manufactured from a titanium alloy, the SI screw has an aggressive tip and cutting flute allowing for easy insertion. The multiple lengths (from 25-50mm in 5 mm increments), cannulated and with smooth shank options (from 30-50mm in 5 mm increments) accommodate variations in patient anatomy. The system also incorporates bone growth windows along the screw’s body which permits bone growth along the screw. The system is specifically designed with a low-profile screw head which may prevent soft tissue irritation.
