LCG Annouces New Licensing Campaign for the Spring-Assisted Cranial Clamp

[Newport Beach, CA], – The new patented technology is used for closing a craniotomy and a technique called dynamic fixation. The spring-assisted cranial clamp is an invention of Lionel C. Sevrain, M.D., a neurosurgeon from France and U.S. citizen.

In 2016, the value of the global market for cranial fixation systems is at around 1.06 billion dollars. It has been projected that by 2022, the market value for these systems will reach $1.74 billion with a CAGR of 8.7%. The base year for this study was 2016 with 2017 to 2022 being the forecast period for the expected growth of the market.

Now in the second year of the forecast period, the market shows high competition due to the presence of numerous small and big players. Some of the prominent players in the market are Stryker (US), Zimmer Biomet (US), Changzhou Huida (China), Pro Meds Instruments (Germany), Jeil Medical (South Korea), and NEOS Surgery (Spain), among others.

Today, a new technology enters the competition with the release of the patented Spring-Assisted Cranial Clamp. The cranial clamp was invented by neurosurgeon Lionel C. Sevrain, a French doctor who moved to the US in 1999 and has long been using his expertise to develop technologies for the spine and brain.He is a prolific inventor and has been awarded more than 30 patents. He is the inventor of the RapidFlap (Walter Lorenz Surgical then Biomet and then ZimmerBiomet).

Sevrain has extensive experience in all of Neurosurgery’s fields such as neuro-vascular, spine, and skull base surgery. The Spring-Assisted Cranial Clamp is the latest of Sevrain’s inventions, a vital technology to use in dynamic fixation for closing craniology. The clamp is a useful tool to secure the bone cover to the skull after a completing of a procedure on the brain.

Using the spring-assisted clamps, the doctors can anatomically reposition the bone cover quickly and securely. The current fasteners, have a rigid fixation that forbids the movement of the flap. The inability to expand can be dangerous to the brain, causing damage to cerebral tissues in case of post-operative brain edema and resultive  intracranial hypertension. This device can also be advantageously used for allowing a swelling brain to expand, avoiding the hurdle of further surgery after craniectomy or a lengthy procedure to use screws and fitting plates installed as hinges .

These current rigid fasteners used by neurosurgeons are consequently  a considerable limitation to the market. However, it will now be solved by Lionel Sevrain’s Spring-Assisted Cranial Clamps.  The clamp provides a reactive, dynamic, and reversible fixation when hinged between the skull and the flap. This way, the flap can accommodate swelling while aligning correctly.
