US-based surgical implant company RTI Surgical has launched the Streamline TL Spinal Fixation System, deformity instrumentation to address complex adult deformities or curvatures.

The Streamline TL deformity instrument is said to enhance the functionality of the company's advanced pedicle screw system, as well as being easy to use for surgeons.

The system, which is a composition of non-cervical spinal fixation devices, allows a rigid formation to be created in the thoracolumbar spine using pedicle screws, set screws, rods and crosslinks.

"With this addition to our spine portfolio we are very excited to be able to cover an even broader range of surgeon and patient needs."

The technology offers a broad range of implants and instruments, which allows the treatment to be suited to a specific patient for a more efficient, streamlined, implant experience.

The introduction of the system provides the surgeons with requisite resources to perform challenging adult deformity cases.

RTI Surgical president and CEO Brian Hutchison said: "Expanding our Streamline TL Spinal Fixation System with these innovative and versatile deformity instruments enhances our ability to compete in the complex deformity market.

"With this addition to our spine portfolio we are very excited to be able to cover an even broader range of surgeon and patient needs."

In 2013, RTI Surgical launched Tritium Sternal Cable Plating (SCP), a system designed for the closure of median sternotomies following open-heart surgeries
