Biedermann Motech is set to launch the iMAS 360 procedure, a mini-open, microsurgical 360 fusion procedure for the lumbar spine developed by spinal surgeon Robert Masson, M.D., Orlando.
The company said that it will launch the iMAS 360 procedure at the North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting in Los Angeles, September 26-28, 2018.
The iMAS 360 procedure incorporates many of the traditional fusion techniques combined with advanced implants and instruments to create a less invasive muscle sparing procedural solution.
The key takeaway of the iMAS 360 is the ability to treat any level of the lumbar spine between L2 and S1 with one small posterior midline skin incision.
Biedermann Motech US spine sales and marketing director Biedermann Motech said: iMAS 360 is a lumbar fusion technique that is tissue sparing, has an optimized surgical field, allows for bilateral direct decompression and restoration of lordosis.
“The MOSS 100 modular pedicle screw system and the TELIX K steerable interbody system have been specifically designed with the iMAS 360 procedure in mind.”
Robert Masson said, “The iMAS 360 evolved over time to optimize accuracy, strategy, sequence and ultimately systems. It is an advanced procedural solution integrating technologically sophisticated equipment and techniques focusing on a specific 3D reconstructive plan…”
