US-based Tyber Medical has expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of new lateral plating system.
Featuring novel fixation technology, the implant offers three points of fixation in each vertebral body.
The new and patented features of the system allow to eliminate some instrumentation required by other systems, in addition to minimizing surgical steps.
To reduce the possibility of neurologic deficit, the enhanced design of the screw couples it flush with the surface of the plate when locked.
Tyber Medical sales and marketing senior director Steve Zeiger said: "The market for lateral access instruments and implants is one of the fastest growing segments. Companies that haven't already secured their share of the market will soon find it harder and harder to compete.
“This new lateral plating system, together with Tyber's lateral retractor and interbody product, creates one of the best lateral access systems available in the market today.”
As per the multiple market research sources, the global market for minimally invasive surgery is forecast to grow faster than any other segment over the next three to five years.
Based in Morristown of New Jersey, Tyber Medical is engaged in the development of orthopedic systems.
The company produces opening osteotomy system, headless and headed compression screws, snap-off screws, cervical plating system, lateral retractor system and spinal interbody spacers.
The company is also involved in the development of BioTy, a nanotopography surface modification that limits the adherence of bacteria to implants.
