Medtronic has introduced a T2 Altitude Expandable Corpectomy device in the US and Europe.
The Corpectomy device utilizes a self locking mechanism and is used to provide thoracolumbar spine (T1-L5) stabilization in traumatic or tumor disorder patients.
After inserting or expanding, the device is filled with bone graft in order to form fusion inside the device between bone and the end plate.
The device comes in different sizes and also aids surgeons to insert the cage from a posterior, anterior or lateral approach.
The device is compatible with the company’s proprietary minimally invasive technologies- MAST, neuromonitoring system – NIM-Eclipse System and CD Horizon Solera Spinal System.
The T2 Corpectomy device is equipped with an implant tracking technology – Verifyi – to enhance hospital efficiencies.
