The new system is intended to simplify the surgery and improve efficiency in fusion procedure workflows for the upper back and neck.

Medtronic designed the Infinity System to immobilise and stabilise the spine during fusion.

The system is indicated for select conditions such as degenerative disc disease, instability or deformity, tumours and traumatic spinal fractures or traumatic dislocations.

Medtronic Spine division senior vice-president and president Doug King said: “For more than 35 years, Medtronic has partnered with leading spine surgeons to advance new technologies with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

“For more than 35 years, Medtronic has partnered with leading spine surgeons to advance new technologies with the goal of improving patient outcomes.”

“We engineered every component of the Infinity OCT System to perform efficiently during the most complex spine procedures, as well as to integrate seamlessly with our market-leading imaging and navigation technologies.”

The system has a multi-axial screw with 60° angulation in any direction and a set screw (locking cap) featuring a quick-start thread in order to reduce cross threading.

In addition, the Infinity System comes with 3mm and 5.5mm diameter screws for expanded patient demographics and clinical applications. It also has a range of implant materials and sizes.

In combination with the O-arm Imaging System and StealthStation Navigation System, the system offers a complete procedural solution for posterior cervical surgery.

Medtronic plans to expand the availability of the Infinity System to ex-US markets in 2018 and 2019.

The US launch follows the company’s recent agreement to acquire surgical systems developer Mazor Robotics for approximately $1.64bn.

Mazor’s core robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) systems are designed for use in spine surgery procedures.
