Globus Medical, a manufacturer of musculoskeletal implants, has announced that it will launch its next generation pedicle screw platform CREO at the upcoming North American Spine Society annual meeting in New Orleans.
Available in modular and pre-assembled versions, these CREO pedicle screws comes with top-loading, side loading and closed head options.
The rods are available in titanium, cobalt chrome and stainless steel with diameters ranging from 4.75mm-5.5mm.
According to the company, the CREO and the CREO Advanced Modular Platform (AMP) stabilization systems enhance efficiency by providing intuitively designed instrumentation and intraoperative versatility along with a complete array of implant options for treating complex spinal pathologies, in one system.
Globus Medical global product development senior vice president Andrew Iott noted CREO offers surgeons the ultimate in adaptability, with the ability to intraoperatively tailor the construct to best meet individual patients’ needs in treating complex spinal pathologies.
"Our most ambitious product launch to date, CREO’s streamlined, intuitively designed instrumentation facilitates efficient and reproducible outcomes. This launch, focused on complex pathologies utilizing our patented non-threaded locking cap mechanism, represents the first phase in the evolution of the CREO Platform.
The system will also include options for MIS (minimally invasive surgery), cortical screws, as well as a threaded locking cap version," Iott added.
The CREO and CREO AMP system will be on display at the North American Spine Society (NASS) annual meeting.
