      „anchor” as the safest element in occipito-cervical stabilization on the market!

      O•C•A•M (Occipito-Cervical Anchorage Method) implants are intended for use in treatment of the occipito-cervical spine from the posterior surgical approach.

      O•C•A•M stabilizer is based on „anchors” fixed in occipital bone and cervical spine (lateral masses). The design of „anchor” provides strongest  and safest fixation of implant in bone (till 7 times stronger in comparison to bone screws) and secures the whole stabilisation. Especially, while fixed in lateral masses the implant minimizes the risk of contact with neuro-vascular systems (higher risk occurs while using transpedicular screws). The system is completed by wide range of hooks and screws, which enable several stabilization options according to the intra-operative demand.
