Alphatec released two new elements for use with the ATEC transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedure. The Sigma Access System and the InVictus Modular Pedicle Screw fully integrate with the SafeOp Neural InformatiX system, the SingleStep implant delivery system and IdentiTi TLIF implants.
The Sigma TLIF Access System is ATEC’s first pedicle-based access system, engineered to provide direct visualization of anatomical landmarks and improve the reproducibility of the MIS TLIF approach.
The InVictus Modular Pedicle Shank attaches directly to the Sigma TLIF Access System. It offers visual, tactile and audible confirmation of tulip attachment and can obviate the need for guide wires.
Pat Miles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The Sigma TLIF Access System and InVictus Modular Screw solutions are not makeovers of existing products. These products are just two examples of the approach-based innovation that we are releasing in 2020.”
