RTI Surgical has received Us Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the Streamline OCT occipito-cervico-thoracic system.

This clearance expands the indication for polyaxial screw placement to include the cervical spine, and also includes clearance for a dual diameter transition rod.

The system’s newly expanded indications span from the occiput to T3, but additional levels of fixation can be accomplished by connecting to other RTI pedicle screw systems through the newly cleared transition rod or currently available rod-to-rod connectors, according to a company release.
