This medical device is part of the complex OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System used to promote fusion of the cervical spine and occipito-cervico-thoracic junction.
On June 20, 2013, Stryker notified spinal implant surgeons recommending routine clinical and radiographic post-operative evaluation for patients with an implanted OASYS Midline plate. If a patient begins experiencing symptoms including pain, weakness, or numbness, more urgent evaluation is needed. For patients who have had a revision surgery, Stryker recommends routine post-operative care and follow-up.
