Medtronic has launched CD HORIZON Fenestrated Screw Spinal System for use in conjunction with Fenestrated Screw Cement in Europe.
The Fenestrated Screw Spinal System helps surgeons to treat patients with poor or compromised bone quality as a result of pathologies such as osteoporosis, a condition in which the bone becomes porous, heals slowly and is subject to fracture.
The system features a pedicle screw with additional holes in the tip to allow a specially formulated bone cement to be injected into a patient’s vertebral body whih cures and provides fixation in the patient’s spine.
The CD HORIZON provides immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments as an adjunct to fusion of the thoracic, lumbar and/or sacral spine.
Medtronic plans to launch this system in India, Singapore and Australia.
