icotec Medical is launching the VADER®one pedicle screw system, FDA 510(k)-cleared to restore the spinal column in advanced stage tumor patients.
VADERone is made from BlackArmor® Carbon/PEEK material, which comprises continuous carbon fibers combined with polyetheretherketone, produced using injection molding CFM (Composite Flow Molding) technology. Radiolucent BlackArmor material enhances the outcome of x-ray, CT and MRI modalities. Its translucency allows optimal delineation of a tumor from healthy tissue, which can facilitate radiotherapy planning, improve radiosurgery treatment and allow immediate and precise monitoring of tumor recurrence.
