Medtronic has launched various new product line additions to the Vertex Select Reconstruction System in the US.
The new additions to Vertex Select Reconstruction System will offer various size implants including pre-cut/bent rods, tapered rods, and other connecting implant options.
The additions are also expected to provide surgeons with more treatment options to carry out posterior cervical-upper thoracic surgical procedures.
Medtronic Spinal business president and senior vice president Doug King said, "When you combine the implant options available in the VERTEX SELECT® Reconstruction System with the recently introduced CERVICAL FACETLIFTSM Indirect Decompression and Stabilization surgical technique, Medtronic can now offer surgeons a true innovative procedure to treat these patients."
The Vertex Select Reconstruction System is used to treat DDD (neck pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies), spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, fracture, dislocation, failed previous fusion and/or tumors.
