Precision Spine, Inc. will introduce its MD-Vue Lateral Access System at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting October 26-29 in Boston, MA.
The strong, lightweight MD-Vue System was designed in collaboration with prominent lateral spine surgeons and offers a nested 3-blade design that prevents blade creep during insertion. An adjunct 4th Blade Anterior Retraction option enables surgeons to increase the retraction field if necessary.
MD-Vue features infinite resolution retraction, multiple fixation options and integrated LED lighting. The system is one of several in the Precision Spine product development pipeline the company expects to become significant revenue drivers during the next phase of the its aggressive growth.
The MD-Vue Lateral Access System’s patented, nested 3-blade design is a feature that enables surgeons to prevent blade creep in lateral procedures. It incorporates a large blade diameter for increased surface area contact, which minimizes the pressure on neural structures during retraction. In addition, the system’s radiolucent retractor increases visibility of critical anatomical structures during intraoperative C-Arm use.
The system also features infinite cranial/caudal resolution, which is designed to prevent unwanted nerve pressure by permitting the surgeon to dial in precisely the desired amount of retraction, in contrast to other systems which permit only traditional incremental step retraction. In addition, the system features an industry-leading integrated, adjustable dual light source.
