OrthoPediatrics Expands Product Portfolio in Canada

OrthoPediatrics obtained 14 product registrations in Canada over the past 12 months. This list includes Orthex, PNP|FEMUR and PediFoot trauma and deformity correction products as well as the RESPONSE Scoliosis family, comprising RESPONSE 4.5/5.0 (pictured above) and 5.5/6.0 Systems and the pedicle-sparing BandLoc sublaminar banding technology.

RESPONSE offers advanced suite of instruments and implants to treat the needs of pediatric patients with spinal deformities. The 4.5/5.0 version offers a hybrid implant design, allowing either a 4.5mm rod in CoCr or 5.0mm rod in titanium or cobalt chromium/chrome, as well as multiple implant connector options and new instrumentation.

Further, OrthoPediatrics expanded clinical use of the ApiFix system throughout Canada. The posterior dynamic deformity correction system is for use in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients with Lenke type 1 and Lenke type 5 curves of 35° to 60° and acts as an internal brace.
