Spine and orthopaedics company Orthofix Medical (Orthofix) has launched two access retractor systems for minimally invasive spine (MIS) procedures.

The commercial launch of the Lattus lateral access system and the Fathom pedicle-based retractor system bolsters the company’s access solutions portfolio.

The Lattus system is easy to use and provides versatility. The blade retraction strength along with the ‘down-and-out’ splay feature allows surgeons to access challenging anatomy.

The full suite of disc prep instrumentation facilitates the implantation of Orthofix Medical’s Regatta NanoMetalene and WaveForm L interbody devices. This enables Lattus to optimise the lateral procedure.

Swift Institute president and spinal neurosurgeon Dr James Lynch said: “The Lattus lateral access system addresses five important areas of lateral spine surgery: access to the spine, preparation or removal of the disc, interbody placement, plate fixation and easy integration with intraoperative monitoring through an advanced interface.

“This improved lateral portfolio optimises each procedural element from access to fusion so that I can efficiently and effectively treat each patient’s unique spinal condition.”

The Fathom retractor system features three points of active telescoping blade fixation. It offers a rigid in situ construct that is specific to each patient by providing the surgeon with the ability to manipulate the precise length of each blade and dial in a customised lateral to medial tilt.

Furthermore, the system facilitates a reproducible surgical workflow and better visualisation with minimal disruption of soft tissues.

Monmouth Medical Center orthopaedic spine surgeon Dr Justin Kubeck said: “Fathom is the first and only pedicle-based retractor to offer continuously telescoping cranial/caudal blades and active control to shorten or extend the length of the medial blade in situ.

“With its offering of modular components, the Fathom Retractor affords me the ability to perform a minimally invasive TLIF surgery with retractor placement customised to each patient unlike anything else currently on the market.”

The launch of the two products comes after the company announced the full commercial launch of the Mariner Deformity Pedicle Screw System earlier this year.

In October last year, Orthofix signed a definitive merger agreement with medical technology company SeaSpine to create a global spine and orthopaedics company with complementary portfolios. The merger was completed in January this year.
