Description

 

 

Product Description​

​The Centurion Posterior Occipital Cervico-Thoracic (POCT) ​System is a temporary, multiple component system comprised of a variety of non-sterile, single use components made of titanium alloy or cobalt chrome alloy that allow the surgeon to build a spinal implant construct. The Centurion POCT System consists of an assortment of rods, set screws, axial connectors, lateral offset adapters, multi-axial screws, cross connectors, hooks, plates, bone screws, and cables (titanium).​

Physi​​cian Benefits

 
Rods are available in titanium and cobalt chrome
 
Angulated screws maximize range of motion and minimize rod contouring
 
No-assembly cross connector provides multi-plane adjustability: translation, rotation and angulation
 
Connectors enable extended construct from thoracic to lumbar region

Lateral Offset Adapter minimizes rod contouring

 
Hooks for cervical application

Indication

​​INDICATIONS

The Centurion POCT System is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments as an adjunct to fusion for the following acute and chronic instabilities of the craniocervical junction, the cervical spine (C1 to C7) and the thoracic spine (T1 – T3): 

  • Traumatic spinal fractures and/or traumatic dislocations
  • Instability or deformity
  • Failed previous fusions (e.g. pseudoarthrosis)
  • Tumors involving the cervical/thoracic spine
  • Degenerative disease including intractable radiculopathy and/or myelopathy 
  • Neck and/or arm pain of discogenic origin as confirmed by radiographic studies 
  • Degenerative disease of the facets with instability 

The Centurion POCT System is also intended to restore the integrity of the spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a limited time period in patients with advanced stage tumors involving the cervical spine in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion.

The Centurion POCT System can also be linked to the Orthofix ​Spinal Fixa​tion System (SFS)​​​ using the Axial or Parallel Rod Connector.​
