US Spine receives clearance for Preference 2 system


US Spine has announced that the FDA has cleared its Preference 2 Complex spine system for use in the US. The system features hooks, rods and screws designed to treat complex spinal conditions.

Advanced correction instrumentation, cobalt chrome rods, lateral offset connectors, hooks, rod-to-rod connectors and a low-profile cross connector are among the many new components that make up the system. All anchoring implants within the system feature the helical flange closure mechanism, which eliminates head splay and drastically reduces cross threading.

According to US Spine, leading spine surgeons with backgrounds in both paediatric and adult deformity developed the system, with the goal of providing a low-profile, flexible and powerful offering that gives surgeons a no-compromise solution to treat complex spinal disorders.
