Global medical device firm Medtronic has launched its comprehensive minimally-invasive spinal fusion procedure, Mast Aligned, into the global market.

The procedure comprises several options to access the spine, including oblique lateral, interbody, navigation and biologics.

The Mast Aligned procedure uses the company’s multi-level percutaneous fixation system, CD Horizon Longitude II, which provides spinal stabilisation and correction as an adjunct to fusion in patients suffering with painful and function-limiting disorders in the middle and lower back.

"The procedure comprises several options to access the spine, including oblique lateral, interbody, navigation and biologics."

The procedure can also be used with the Nim-Eclipse system, Stealthstation navigation and O-ARM imaging systems and the Powerease system designed for drilling, tapping and driving screws during spinal surgery.

Medtronic spinal business senior vice president and president Doug King said that through the launch of the procedure the company is extending the benefits of Mast-based therapies to patients with advanced-stage conditions.

"In doing so, the team is also extending the range of capabilities of a proven platform, the CD Horizon Solera spinal system," King said.
