Precision Spine today said it has launched its Reform Posterior Occipital Cervical Thoracic System in the U.S.
The Reform POCT System is a posterior spinal fixation system that enables stability in the occupy, cervical and thoracic spine during spine fusion. The system is so far indicated for DDD, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, trauma (fracture or dislocation), occipital-cervical dislocation, atlantoaxial fracture with instability, revision or previous cervical spine surgery and tumors.
“The Reform POCT Sytem provides surgeons with outstanding versatility,” Steven Yocom, a doctor at Cooper University Health Care who worked with Precision Spine engineers to develop the system, said in a news release. “In order to reduce manipulation and help achieve an implant construct that closely matches each patient’s anatomy, there are a variety of roles, occipital plates, occipital screws, polyaxial screws, cross-connectors, lateral offsets, domino connectors and hooks. The system instrumentation is easy to use and ergonomically designed to assist in bringing greater efficiency to implant placement and insertion.”
A flexible rod template can be used with the system as a guide to help select the correct rod lordosis. Pre-lordosed rods are available in a number of lengths and a rod cutter could be used to shorten rods to desired lengths. The system’s single-sided cap screws can also be used with the counter-torque wrench to ease alignment of the cap screw.
“The Reform POCT System is an important addition to our growing portfolio of devices,” chief operating officer Chris DeNicola said. “It is further evidence of Precision Spine’s continuing commitment to work with surgeons in the design and commercialization of advanced products that help bring greater versatility, efficiency and cost-effectiveness to the OR.”
