CoreLink announced today that it launched its Tiger MIS x-tab pedicle screw system designed for the correction of the thoracolumbar spine.
St. Louis-based CoreLink’s percutaneous system further expands its Tiger platform with numerous screw and rod options for treating patients with a variety of spinal pathologies with minimal tissue disruption, according to a news release.
Tiger MIS x-tab integrates with CoreLink’s standard, tower-based Tiger MIS system with polyaxial, extended tab pedicle screws to offer cross-compatibility for mini-open and percutaneous approaches.
The system’s low-profile, extended tabs stand at 130 mm long to facilitate implantation in larger patients, while a breakaway top allows for the extensions to cross when implanting in the lower lumbar spine.
“This addition to our proven tower-based Tiger MIS system allows for true percutaneous screw placement and more efficient surgeries,” CoreLink CEO Jay Bartling said in the release. “We anticipate several more product launches this year as we continue to provide more comprehensive solutions. This system was a necessary addition for surgeons looking for a minimally invasive fixation device to complement our robust lateral fusion platform.”
