Atlas Spine launches radiolucent MIS compatible spacer for thoracic surgery

Atlas Spine : 23 May, 2008  (New Product)
Atlas Spine has launched the Stature Vertebral Body Replacement System in the USA, which is a radiolucent MIS compatible spacer system designed to utilise a self-distracting technique in the treatment of various pathologies of the thoracic and lumbar spine.
'After significant developmental work and clinical evaluation, it is rewarding to see the enthusiasm towards Stature by an increasing group of clinicians. Their feedback and support drives our confidence in Stature's performance as its use multiplies in surgeries across the nation,' said Bart Doedens, president and chief executive officer of Atlas Spine.

The Stature VBR is an evolution in the PEEK spacer arena. Traditionally spacer products have been met with the tedious challenges of implanting an appropriately sized device through a small access. These challenges often require more aggressive methods with compromised results. The Stature VBR's geometry and self-distracting capabilities overcome these challenges and allow the surgeon to more easily and effectively restore the natural anatomic height and sagittal balance in severely compromised spaces.

The implants are manufactured from PEEK Optima, an Implant grade material with biomechanical characteristics similar to that of natural cortical bone. They are available in a variety of sizes and geometric options to accommodate the patient's specific anatomical requirements.

The Stature system is complemented by the Back-Pak DS Atlas Spine's comprehensive disc preparation set. The Back-Pak DS is MIS compatible and includes proprietary instruments designed to maximise proficiency and provide optimum weight, balance, feel and control for surgeons.
