Ulrich Medical USA has announced the full US commercial launch of the Momentum MIS posterior spinal fixation system at the 2023 North American Spine Society (NASS) annual meeting (18–21 October, Los Angeles, USA). Momentum MIS was initially launched at the beginning of the year and the limited launch phase recently came to a successful completion, according to a company press release.
“I have been very pleased with the new Momentum MIS system,” said Grant Buttram (University of North Carolina [UNC] Health, Chapel Hill, USA). “It is streamlined, intuitive and performs exactly as an MIS system should. The addition of compatibility with Medtronic’s StealthStation will allow surgeons who prefer navigating their procedures to offer their patients a reliable fixation option.”
Momentum MIS provides a percutaneous solution to address the growing minimally invasive surgery market. Ulrich claims that its design offers a comprehensive, tab-based system with a narrow profile, extended screw tabs, removable rings for reinforced support, and integrated reduction. The system also features a novel guidewire lock, and shares the benefits of the successful Momentum posterior fixation platform that includes conical screws with cannulated, fenestrated screw options, the recent release adds.
“Momentum MIS is truly among the leading, next-generation MIS [minimally invasive surgery] solutions on the market in terms of performance and adaptability”, said Jim Bruty, chief operating officer at Ulrich. “The launch of this system is a significant milestone in the company’s evolution toward offering a comprehensive spine portfolio for its surgeon customers.”
