4WEB Medical Announces Launch of Stand Alone Cervical Spine Truss System

November 21, 2019

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 4WEB Medical, an orthopedic device company focused on developing innovative implants utilizing its proprietary Truss Implant Technology™, announced the initial launch and completion of the first procedures with the Cervical Spine Truss System-Stand Alone™ (CSTS-SA).

The CSTS-SA implants incorporate an Advanced Structural Design comprised of the company’s proprietary Truss Implant Technology. Since receiving 510(k) clearance in August, the system has been utilized in multiple surgeries, contributing significant revenue growth that is expected to continue into 2020.

Tasha White, 4WEB’s Director of Marketing said, “CSTS-SA is the latest product offering showing our continued commitment to innovative solutions that improve clinical outcomes. Recently completed studies show the hierarchical surface roughness of the Truss Implant Technology drives osteogenic cell differentiation. Combined with the mechanobiologic properties of the truss structure, the osteogenic gene expression is better optimized than competitive devices.”

CSTS-SA is a complete, zero-profile, construct solution that eliminates the need for traditional plate and screw fixation. The device also features an easy-to-use single-step locking mechanism, increasing surgeon confidence and improving procedural efficiency.

Brad Prybis, MD, spine surgeon at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic commented, “I am a firm believer in the 3D printed truss design of the implants which stimulates bone growth. With the ability to stabilize the interbody in a stand-alone style with cephalad and caudally directed screws, I feel very confident in its ability to provide a successful outcome for my cervical patients.”

The CSTS-SA is the one of many products planned to be released in the next year that supports 4WEB Medical’s growth strategy with investments in product development, clinical research and procedural based solutions.
