Medtronic announces global launch of the CD Horizon Solera Voyager spinal system


Medtronic has launched the CD Horizon Solera Voyager spinal system for minimally invasive spine procedures.

Available in countries around the world, the system expands upon the transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion procedure by offering multiple, minimally invasive rod insertion options and enabling a seamless 3D-navigated surgical experience. The announcement was made during the 22nd annual international Meeting on Advanced Spine Techniques (IMAST; 8–11 July, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).

With the new system, surgeons have the flexibility to use either a percutaneous or Wiltse minimally invasive approach for rod insertion depending upon their preference. The system also features a low-profile, extended-tab screw with inner threading, which eases rod insertion and facilitates rod reduction.

In addition, the system is part of Medtronic’s Surgical Synergy Spinal Platform—what the company believes is the most integrated portfolio of navigated surgical technologies—which seeks to minimise the operating room from interruption and constraints and gives surgeons the freedom to focus wholly on their patients.
