Musculoskeletal health company Zimmer Holdings Inc (NYSE:ZMH) (SIX:ZMH) reported the launch of the Zimmer V2F Anterior Fixation System, a new implant system for the treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures, tumours, disc degeneration and other pathologies of the anterior spine.
According to the company, the V2F System consists of plates and screws designed to better match the varying anatomy of the thoracolumbar spine.
Additionally, the company's Zimmer V2F Anterior Fixation System features All-Through-One Instrumentation to guide efficient screw placement and 6mm and 7mm dual-lead screws to provide enhanced insertion speed and bone screw fixation.

The prediction of V2F was similar to the KWSST in terms of size and locations of the central and second vortices.
The most significant change of flow patterns was found in the prediction of the V2F model in that the second vortex became much smaller than the measurement.

The V2F system consists of a range of plates and screws designed to closely match the varying anatomy of the thoracolumbar spine.
By incorporating novel variable-to-fixed screw and cap technology, the Zimmer V2F anterior fixation system offers surgeons greater flexibility to address the unique anatomy of every patient through variable screw and plate placement and fixation.
The V2F also features "all-through-one" instrumentation to guide efficient screw placement; and 6 mm and 7 mm dual-lead screws to provide enhanced insertion speed and bone screw fixation.
