Limited U.S. Launch of Arsenal Deformity Adolescent Scoliosis System

By Julie A. Vetalice

Alphatec Spine commenced limited U.S. launch of the Arsenal™ Deformity Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis system (AIS) and noted successful completion of initial cases.

Arsenal AIS features uniplanar screws, designed to ease screw positioning and rod placement through a tulip with 360 degrees of rotation, while restricting motion in the medial/lateral plane for derotation correction.

U.S. expansion of the Arsenal system is among Alphatec's growth initiatives following the 3Q16 acquisition of its ex-U.S. assets by Globus Medical.
