OrtoWay's OrtoWell Distractor Now Used for Trauma Surgery


OrtoWay's OrtoWell® Distractor instrument for spinal surgery may now be used in spinal trauma or tumor removal applications. This determination follows animal and cadaver testing, results of which show that the device may offer benefits in time savings, access and accuracy in implant positioning.

The hydraulically-powered OrthoWell instrument, which may be used with any prosthesis, separates vertebrae during anterior procedures such as disc implantation, ALIF cages and spinal tumor removal. The product is CE Marked (under the company's former name, Ortoviva) and reported to have regulatory clearance for sale in the U.S.
