US-based spinal implant company Premia Spine has introduced the ProMIS Fixation System with its Advanced MIS screw placement at the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery Meeting in Las Vegas.

The ProMIS Fixation System includes a choice of screw placement techniques in one instrument kit.

It allows surgeons to select from a range of features including k-wireless technique, a direct Skin-to-Screw placement, a Tap-Shidi approach, and a traditional reusable Jamshidi technique.

According to Premia Spine CEO Ron Sacher, the ProMIS System facilitates speed and saves reprocessing costs due to fewer instruments in the kit and the fewer steps it requires.

"The Direct Skin-to-Screw placement technique saves several steps and reduces x-ray exposure to my patients and me."

Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania Dr Steven DeLuca said: "The Direct Skin-to-Screw placement technique saves several steps and reduces x-ray exposure to my patients and me.

"I make my incision, place the screw with an extended k-wire tip at my desired entry point, radiographically confirm orientation, mallet the k-wire tip into the pedicle, and then simply advance my screw as I retract the k-wire into the cannulated screw body."

ProMIS offers a pedicle screw supplied in an individual sterile pack.

The Premia Spine screw offers its patented surface treatment which leverages on the technology consisting of a unique roughened topography which generates an optimal screw-bone response and triggers bone growth into the micro-crevices of the screw surface.
