Spineology has introduced the ACT MediaLIF platform with the full US market release of its new Fortress pedicular fixation system and Medius midline retractor system.
The ACT MediaLIF procedure significantly reduces the incision, dissection and retraction requirements associated with traditional posterior spinal fusion procedures while still providing the surgeon exceptional access to the spine for fusion, fixation and decompression, a company press release states. The procedure combines the advantages of Spineology’s new Fortress pedicular fixation system, Medius midline retractor system and Rampart interbody fusion systems.
The Fortress system is a midline pedicle screw system that offers a divergent cortical screw trajectory for screw placement to provide an anatomy-conserving alternative to traditional pedicular fixation. The Medius system, a low profile, feature-rich retractor, is designed to minimise muscle disruption and tissue retraction. The Rampart system offers impacted and steerable transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion and posterior lumbar interbody fusion options.
“The ACT MediaLIF platform offers a best-in-class midline cortical-cancellous screw, exceptional surgical access, and proven interbody technologies,” says John Booth, chief executive officer of Spineology. “The ACT MediaLIF procedure provides both patients and surgeons numerous benefits and further broadens Spineology’s anatomy-conserving product portfolio.”
