4WEB Medical Announces Commercial Launch of its Cervical Spine Integrated Plating Solution

Company successfully completes initial surgical procedures with its Integrated Cervical Plate

DALLAS, June 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — 4WEB Medical, an orthopedic implant company focused on developing innovative implants that utilize its proprietary Truss Implant Technology, announced the initial launch of the newest addition to the company’s portfolio, the Cervical Spine Truss System Integrated Plating Solution (CSTS-IPS). The first procedures were performed by Kris Parchuri, DO, orthopedic spine surgeon at Spine & Orthopedic Specialists in Tulsa, OK and Jason Alder, MD, Director of Spinal Surgery at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Frisco, TX.

4WEB’s CSTS-IPS consists of a plate that mechanically attaches to the interbody fusion device, providing robust fixation and a stable environment that allows fusion to take place.  The stand-alone construct is indicated for up to two contiguous disc levels.

Dr. Alder commented, “4WEB’s new cervical implant with integrated plate provides an easy-to-use alternative to other standalone cervical implants.  I was able to place the implant at an adjacent level to a previous multi-level cervical fusion without having to remove any hardware from the original construct.  The integrated plate provides a more stable construct compared to a traditional standalone implant with screw or anchor fixation.”

The launch of the CSTS-IPS is a significant milestone for 4WEB. The company’s cervical portfolio is currently its fastest growing product line, and with the addition of the integrated plating system, 4WEB will continue its rapid growth trajectory in 2024 and beyond.

“I was impressed with the simplicity and ease of use of 4WEB’s new integrated cervical plate solution. The plate has a low-profile, which offers advantages over non-integrated plate alternatives,” said Dr. Parchuri. “By adding a stand-alone, integrated cervical plate system to 4WEB’s existing product offering, the company continues to demonstrate its commitment to further development of an already comprehensive cervical portfolio.”

In addition to the CSTS-IPS product launch, the company is planning the full commercial launch of its Cervical Spine Truss System with anchor fixation in Q3 and the initial launch of anchor fixation for Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion devices in early Q4.  Collectively, these launches represent the company’s focus on developing procedural solutions and providing surgeon partners the necessary tools to address various patient pathologies.
