Precision Spine has launched the SureLOK MIS 3L Percutaneous Screw System to provide versatility and flexibility to surgeons in terms of procedural approaches and application of its different components.

The system was designed for immobilisation and stabilisation of spinal segments in adults as an adjunct to fusion to treat acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine.

Additionally, it may be used for non-cervical pedicle screw fixation for pseudarthrosis, severe spondylolisthesis, trauma, curvatures, spinal stenosis, spinal tumour and failed previous fusion.

The system components are available in various sizes and include cannulated pedicle screws, straight and pre-curved rods and locking caps.

The component versatility enables clinicians to match each patient’s anatomy more accurately.

The screws come with a 150mm extended tab that allows low profile, MIS Percutaneous placement with 50mm of controlled rod reduction.

Furthermore, an open tulip design makes rod introduction easy, while the proximal tapered triple lead thread helps improve efficiency in placing screws and optimise pull-out strength.

Precision Spine CEO Chris DeNicola said: “The SureLOK MIS 3L Percutaneous Screw System represents another example of how Precision Spine is making good on its commitment to developing minimally invasive devices that feature the versatility and flexibility surgeons need to help improve OR efficiency and achieve positive patient outcomes.”

The percutaneous rod inserter of the SureLOK MIS 3L system features a bulleted tip, keyed hex end and 15° rod angle to ease rod insertion and release.

For quick and efficient rod delivery, the inserter shaft is designed to glide easily through the tulips. The SureLOK MIS 3L also features a reliable compression / distraction system.
