Features of the occipital spine system include medial lateral adaptability from 25mm to 45mm, low-profile occipital screws, bend zones for contouring and 360° articulating rods.
The spine system is also designed be configurable to match individual patient anatomy.
Exactech senior vice president and spine division general manager Bruce Thompson said the company is excited to release the final components of the Gibralt system to the market.
“The occipital plate and articulating rods provide surgeons with a comprehensive posterior solution. The Gibralt OCT system provides seamless integration with the Proliant 5.5mm and Hydralok 6.0mm thoraco-lumbar pedicle screw systems,” Thompson said.
