Medacta Launches Customizable MySpine MC Surgical Guides -

Medacta announced FDA 510(k) clearance and launch of the MySpine Midline Cortical Pedicle Screw Placement Guide (MySpine MC). Using 3D-printed guides, MySpine MC technology guides the pedicle screw via established cortical bone trajectory (CBT). With CT-based pre-op planning of a more caudomedial entry point vs. traditional pedicle screw trajectories and a less extreme caudal-cranial angle than CBT, the technique avoids interference with cranial facet joints and accommodates larger screw diameters and lengths, with four points of cortical bone purchase for biomechanical fixation.
