Pioneer Surgical Technology offers new solution for ACDF surgery procedures

Pioneer Surgical Technology : 24 July, 2008  (New Product)
Pioneer Surgical Technology has introduced the SlimFuse Anterior Cervical Plate System which has been designed to optimize anterior cervical fusion procedures while addressing the clinical needs of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery.
SlimFuse provides surgeons the flexibility to choose between a rigid, semi-rigid, or translationally dynamic system without additional instrumentation. Compared to traditional systems, SlimFuse's narrow plate width and scalloped cutouts provide improved interoperative visualization. Standard and dynamic, one and two level plates, require only one screw per level.

'Pioneer's unique low profile plate design reduces the amount of retraction required for plate implantation,' according to Dr Randy Davis with the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, Glen Burnie, MD. 'A smaller wound site reduces the chances of dysphagia, a swallowing disorder, and helps improve a patient's rate of recovery.'

SlimFuse received FDA 510K clearance in January 2008. The SlimFuse System will be available throughout the USA and distributed in Europe through Pioneer's wholly owned subsidiary based in the Netherlands.
