OrthoPediatrics has launched its new BandLoc 5.5/6mm system, which has been both CE-marked and US Food and Drug Administration-approved.
BandLoc is designed to offer a pedicle-sparing, band passage technique for treating a wide variety of complex spinal pathologies, including scoliosis. The implant features a pre-assembled design, which incorporates the company’s Response set screw technology, and accepts multiple rod diameters in cobalt chrome or titanium.
BandLoc’s instrumentation is intended to be innovative and ergonomic.
Dayton, USA-based paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Mike Albert, who collaborated with the company on the design of the product, says “Utilising sub-laminar polyester bands and intuitive instrumentation, this system allows me to correct complex paediatric spinal deformities.”
