Medtronic unveils new spine fixation system

Medtronic : 25 October, 2007  (New Product)
Medtronic has announced the availability of its CD Horizon Legacy Anterior Spinal System in the USA.
The CD Horizon Legacy Anterior Spinal System is a system that offers an anterior (frontal) fixation solution for complex spinal surgery.

The fixation system is designed to assist with stability of the thoracic and lumbar spine when performing modern spinal fusion surgery and will help patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, trauma, tumours, severe curvatures and other degenerative diseases of the spine.

The CD Horizon Legacy Anterior Spinal System consists of a series of vertebral body staples, rods, screws, Crosslink Plates, and connecting components that allows for distraction to accommodate bone graft.

'The new CD Horizon Legacy Anterior Spinal System affords the surgeon a flexibility not previously available in other spinal systems for the treatment of tumor, trauma and deformity cases,' said David G. Schwartz, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon with Orthopaedics Indianapolis in Indiana, USA.

The CD Horizon Legacy Anterior Spinal System also features:

Titanium construction
Low profile screw design
Top-loading, top-tightening screws
Colour coding to assist with construct implantation.
