NuVasive to launch Integrated Global Alignment platform for select international markets at EUROSPINE 2015


NuVasive will introduce its Integrated Global Alignment (iGAT) platform to select international markets at EUROSPINE 2015 (2–4 September, Copenhagen, Denmark).

iGA is a proprietary, procedurally-integrated, digital platform of specialised products designed to help surgeons achieve more precise spinal column alignment. The platform prioritises the importance of proper alignment and its potential to impact positive patient outcomes.

The iGA platform includes a collection of products, including next generation posterior fixation, anterior and posterior implants, updated neuromonitoring and computer-assisted surgical planning technology.

The suite of proprietary, procedurally-based technologies that comprise iGA are designed to enhance clinical outcomes by increasing the predictability of achieving global alignment in spinal procedures and to help the surgeon:

  • Calculate alignment parameters with NuvaMapT and NuvalineT preoperative planning tools;
  • Correct the anterior and posterior columns with comprehensive implant solutions using real-time intraoperative assessment via NuvaMap OR; and
  • Confirm the restoration and preservation of global sagittal alignment postoperatively, again through NuvaMap and Nuvaline.

Jason Hannon, executive vice president, International, said, “The expansion of iGA into the global marketplace is yet another step forward as NuVasive looks to reshape the spine market through game-changing innovation and address the next frontier in spine surgery—alignment. We believe this new platform marks a significant advancement in the historical approach to spine surgery with revolutionary technology to help drive better patient outcomes in surgery through the global alignment of the spine with the only integrated surgical platform that allows for intraoperative reconciliation to ensure global alignment is achieved. Following on the successful launch of iGA in the USA earlier this year, we are pleased to expand access to our most innovative solutions as NuVasive leads the way as a clear technology disruptor in the global marketplace.”
