OrthoPediatrics (NSDQ:KIDS) today said it launched its Response neuromuscular scoliosis system.
The Warsaw, Ind.–based company designed the system to treat pediatric patients who have neuromuscular scoliosis. It has a complete set of implants and instruments to simplify insertion and has specific options to address extreme hyperlordosis and sacral/pelvic fixation.
“Neuromuscular scoliosis patients can present with a wide array of extreme 3-dimensional deformities, which can require highly individualized and complicated surgical treatment. The addition of the neuromuscular scoliosis system to the OrthoPediatrics Response offering was designed to improve the speed and efficacy of the instrumentation, correction and stabilization of these complicated deformities, with the aim of optimizing outcomes. This now makes the OP Response system the ideal one for all types of pediatric spinal deformity,” Scott Luhmann, pediatric orthopedic surgeon and chief of staff and Shriner’s Hospital for Children in St. Louis, Mo., said in a news release.
The neuromuscular scoliosis system also works with other OrthoPediatrics scoliosis products, including the BandLock Sublamiar banding system and the Firefly 3D printed pedicle screw guides.
“We are excited about the launch of the Response NM and this first of its kind offering completely focused on implants and instruments for treating neuromuscular scoliosis,” OrthoPediatrics VP of scoliosis Jeff Smithey said.
