US-based firm NuVasive has introduced portfolio of trauma system 'RELINE Trauma' for spine trauma fixation.
Designed to offer flexibility, the new system can be used to customise intra-operative approach based on the pathology and requirements of the patient during standard open, maximum access surgery (MAS) or hybrid procedures.
The trauma system also enables surgeons to modify implant types, while it allows for a variety of techniques, including the transition from open to MAS spine procedures.
As a result of this development, the firm will be able to put good focus on the estimated $100m US spine trauma fixation market.
Via a dual rack system and in case of ligamentotaxis, the portfolio allows independent lordosis restoration and parallel compression/distraction by dial-in fracture correction.
This results in a decrease of the procedure's total cost, as it can be performed by one surgeon instead of two.
RELINE Trauma comes with a Fracture Frame instrumentation, which facilitates controlled fracture correction in the presence or absence of a rod in the construct.
The system can also be used to place different rod diameters and/or materials before or after fracture correction, resulting in improved, easy and consistent decrease of fractures.
It also contains the integrated global alignment (iGA) platform consisting of NuVasive computer assisted technologies such as NVM5, NuvaLine, and NuvaMap.
Surgeons can calculate, correct and confirm spinal alignment using iGA, via preoperative planning, intraoperative assessment and postoperative confirmation.
The RELINE Trauma further allows quick manual rod manipulation, following the integration with Bendini system.
