Irish medical technology firm Medtronic has commercially introduced its CD Horizon Solera Voyager spinal system that can be used in minimally invasive spine procedures.
Available in different countries across the globe, the system is said to expand upon the transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedure by providing multiple and minimally invasive rod insertion options and enables 3D-navigated surgical experience.
The system allows surgeons to use either a percutaneous or Wiltse minimally invasive approach for rod insertion depending upon their preference.
CD Horizon Solera includes a low-profile and extended-tab screw with inner threading that eases rod insertion and facilitates rod reduction.
Medtronic Spinal business president and senior vice-president Doug King said: "Medtronic is known for our life-changing innovations and groundbreaking technologies.
"That legacy – along with our broad portfolio and collaborative partnerships – enables us to truly make an impact on patient care."
Medtronic’s Spinal business works with world-renowned surgeons, researchers and innovative partners to provide new therapies for spinal, neurological, orthopaedic and oral maxillofacial conditions.
