At the recent North American Spine Society (NASS) 30th Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, there were several product launches and announcements involving minimally invasive surgery spine devices. Here is a look at the new product developments in the market presented at the meeting this year.
Life Spine Launches Minimally Invasive Systems at NASS
Life Spine launched four minimally invasive systems at the 2015 North American Spine Society (NASS) 30th Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois. The LONGBOW™ Expandable Lateral Spacer System and CENTRIC® Lateral Retractor System simplify expandable lumbar interbody fusions (eLIFs) and allow for a larger graft area with less muscle retraction. The SImpact™ Sacroiliac Joint Fixation System offers in-situ controlled compression via a unique two part screw that also incorporates Life Spine’s new proprietary Osseo-Loc™ surface treatment to help promote bone fusion. The CENTERLINE™ Cortical Thoracolumbar Spinal System offers one of the smallest stature cobalt chrome systems on the market for minimal incisions and tissue retraction.
“Throughout the last year, Life Spine has doubled in size through a focus on minimally invasive surgery. Although we are a multinational company, we remain true to our start-up, engineering core by working with innovative surgeons to produce unique, highly effective surgical procedures. The LONGBOW eLIF procedure is a prime example of our process of innovating for better surgical outcomes. LONGBOW is the first MIS Anterior-Posterior expandable lateral system on the market reducing the muscle retraction by as much as 55%,” said Michael Butler, President and CEO of Life Spine.
Benvenue Interbody Fusion System Wins 2015 Spine Technology Award at NASS
Benvenue Medical announced the U.S. commercial launch of the Luna® 3D Interbody Fusion System. Luna 3D is a new expandable interbody designed for minimally invasive surgery (MIS), mini-open or open posterior approaches. Luna 3D’s controlled, atraumatic insertion through a 6-8 mm cannula is designed to minimize nerve retraction and mitigate implant migration. In-situ 3D expansion provides zero-impaction delivery, intended to preserve and protect vertebral endplates. Once in the disc space, Luna 3D expands to 25 mm in diameter and up to 13 mm in height. Bone graft is inserted into the Luna 3D cage after expansion, thereby optimizing this critical aspect of fusion surgery.
“The launch of Luna 3D and its recognition as a spine technology of the year further solidifies Benvenue Medical as an innovative company focused on minimally invasive spine,” said Robert K. Weigle, CEO of Benvenue Medical, Inc. “Our portfolio features award-winning, proprietary expandable technology that is well-positioned for spine surgeons’ clinical requirements while serving the unmet needs of the open and MIS spinal implant markets.”
4WEB Medical Launches 3D Printed Posterior Spine Truss System
4WEB Medical launched its Posterior Spine Truss System in the U.S. market. The Posterior Spine Truss System is a comprehensive line of interbody fusion devices with applications across a wide array of posterior spine approaches including PLIF, TLIF, and Oblique procedures. Encompassing 150 implants, the Posterior Spine Truss System affords surgeons a wide range of options that provide an optimal match for each patient’s unique anatomy. The implants provide innovative functionality such as a biconvex web structure that distributes the load over a larger surface area at the endplate interface to minimize subsidence.
“The Posterior Spine Truss System represents a significant advancement in treatment options for my lumbar spine patients”, said S. Babak Kalantar, M.D., Chief of Orthopedic Spine Surgery at Georgetown University Hospital. “The expansion of 4WEB’s novel truss implant technology into posterior spine procedures will allow me to utilize an implant with proven clinical benefits across the majority of spine surgeries that I perform.”
