Mecta-C is an intervertebral body fusion device used for Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF). The implant is designed to restore the biomechanical stability of the motion segment while the fusion process is occurring. The Mecta-C implant is indicated for the treatment of degenerative diseases of the cervical disc and can be used for cervical fusion from C2-T1. The technique of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion using the Mecta-C cage is similar to the standard Smith-Robinson technique utilizing bone graft. The physiologic design and the range of available cage sizes allow the surgeon to choose a cage that matches the patients unique individual anatomy. Mecta-C implants are available in a wide range of sizes and footprints and with either a dome-shaped or flat superior endplate. Mecta-C is available in biocompatible PEEK-OPTIMA with tantalum spikes and markers to prevent implant migration and to enable comprehensive radiographic assessment. The Mecta-C (PEEK) implant is radiolucent and enables the surgeon to radiographically monitor the progression to bony fusion. The Mecta-C implants mechanical structure provides load-bearing capabilities, and the lordotic design restores the anatomic sagittal alignment of the cervical spine.
