Globus Medical ExcelsiusGPS Shows 99% Screw Placement Success -

Globus Medical's ExcelsiusGPS® Robotic navigation system demonstrated a 99% screw placement success rate in the first 100 cases at a single center. No malpositions or post-op returns to the O.R. related to screw placement were reported. ExcelsiusGPS combines the ability to use three imaging workflows (pre-op CT, intra-op CT and fluoroscopy) with navigation and guidance to place pedicle screws with real-time feedback. In this study, 562 lumbar pedicle screws were placed across six vertebral levels during 55 single-position lateral, 16 anterior and 29 posterior interbody fusions. This indicates the system's versatility for various approaches, which is of benefit to eliminate patient reposition that can affect operational efficiency, costs and patient outcomes.
