Spinal Elements announced initial procedures using Katana™, its minimally invasive lateral system.
Surgical access with Katana is created in the plane of the muscle, preventing muscle entrapment, while a posterior-forward design helps prevent the nerve compression. Katana implants are treated with the company's Ti-Bond® porous titanium surface technology.
In mid-3Q16, the company announced a one-year warranty for all Ti-Bond devices.
