Medtronic announced the latest additions to its minimally invasive spine surgery ecosystem, making it the only company to combine spinal implants, biologics, navigation, robotics and AI-powered data for surgeons and patients.
New additions to the Medtronic MIS+ portfolio include:
Catalyft™ PL and PL40, the first releases in the new Catalyft™ Expandable Interbody System. Catalyft™ PL and PL40 feature a unique design for anterior rim engagement, a beveled tip for ease of insertion, seamless integration with StealthStation™ Navigation, simplified bone graft delivery, and active expansion at the precise angle and lift that surgeons need for minimally invasive, patient-specific solutions to meet sagittal alignment goals.
The Space-D™ Access System, which enables pedicle-screw-based distraction, retraction and compression, compatible with Medtronic's leading MIS screw system, CD Horizon™ Solera™ Voyager™, enabling simpler, all-in-one access for surgeons, making procedures more efficient and reproducible.
Accelerate™ Graft Delivery System with Grafton™ DBF, which enables more controlled and efficient delivery of graft material into the disc space or other locations. Accelerate enables placement of more bone graft2 to facilitate fusion and is nine-times faster than traditional graft delivery methods.3 Bone grafting is also more controlled and easier for surgeons to visualize.
The new additions to Medtronic's MIS+ portfolio create the most complete MIS+ TLIF solution available for surgeons. A complete procedural solution allows surgeons to provide the benefits of minimally invasive spine care – including lower infection and complication rates, less blood loss, smaller incisions, reduced hospital stays and less pain – to more patients. Compared to open TLIF, MIS+TLIF requires a smaller incision and less muscle and tissue disruption, which can mean a faster recovery time after the operation. Together, these technologies improve clinical and economic value while reducing OR time with a fully streamlined procedure.
