Pioneer Surgical Technology launches SlimFuse system


Pioneer Surgical Technology recently announced the market availability of the SlimFuse Anterior Cervical Plate System. The system designed to optimise anterior cervical fusion procedures while addressing the clinical needs of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery.

SlimFuse provides a choice between a rigid, semi-rigid, or translationally dynamic system without additional instrumentation. SlimFuse’s narrow plate width and scalloped cutouts provide improved interoperative visualisation and standard and dynamic, one- and two-level plates require only one screw per level.

“Pioneer’s unique low profile plate design reduces the amount of retraction required for plate implantation,” said to Dr Randy Davis, Baltimore Washington Medical Center. “A smaller wound site reduces the chances of dysphagia, a swallowing disorder, and helps improve a patient’s rate of recovery.”

The SlimFuse System will be available throughout the United States and Europe.
