US-based Zimmer Spine has launched its Virage OCT spinal fixation system, a posterior system for the occipital-cervical-thoracic (OCT) spine (Occiput-T3).

According to the company, Virage OCT spinal fixation system will change surgeons’ perspective on posterior fixation.

The Virage OCT spinal fixation system includes a variety of rods, anchors, transverse connectors, screws, polyaxial screws, and instruments for inserting and securing the implants.

With all these features, the spinal fixation system achieves an implant construct as necessary for the individual case.

"This transformational technology will significantly improve the surgical flow of these procedures."

Baylor University Medical Center and Methodist Hospital for Surgery in Dallas director of spine and reconstructive fellowship Andrew Park said: "The Virage System’s omnidirectional extreme-angle screw with Zimmer friction-fit technology dramatically simplifies screw implantation and rod alignment, allowing surgeons to increase procedural efficiency and overcome challenging patient anatomies during OCT fusion procedures."

The company said that all Virage system polyaxial dual-lead screws include 360° omnidirectional extreme-angle screw technology, allowing for 112° of conical range of motion and simplifying rod alignment.
