MySpine: a proven technology to help in pedicle screws placement critical steps

The MySpine technology, along with the M.U.S.T. screw system, leads to a more accurate screw positioning for both junior and expert surgeons as reported in the study “Accuracy of patient-specific template-guided vs. free-hand fluoroscopically controlled pedicle screw placement in the thoracic and lumbar spine: a randomized cadaveric study” by Dr. Farshad et. al. (Eur Spine J. 2016).

Medacta is proud to announce that the MySpine Pedicle Screw Placement System, awarded at NASS as best new technology in Spine for its ability to reduce radiation in the OR, decrease operating room time and improve screw placement accuracy, has been used to implant over 3’000 M.U.S.T. Pedicle Screws.
 
MySpine is a tailor made patient specific spine instrument, created to lead the surgeon through the critical steps of accurate pedicle screw placement whilst reducing the surgical time and intra-operative X-ray radiation.
 
The MySpine technology, along with the M.U.S.T. screw system, leads to a more accurate screw positioning for both junior and expert surgeons as reported in the study “Accuracy of patient-specific template-guided vs. free-hand fluoroscopically controlled pedicle screw placement in the thoracic and lumbar spine: a randomized cadaveric study” by Dr. Farshad et. al. (Eur Spine J. 2016).
 
In this study, worthy results in terms of screw positioning mean time have been achieved with the MySpine technique; the overall time is reduced by about 30% vs the free hand technique.
 
The dedicated MySpine Low Dose CT protocol minimizes the X-ray exposure for the patient (more than 30 times less irradiation than using C-Arm or O-Arm technologies), moreover MySpine pedicle screw placement potentially allows for a complete reduction of intraoperative fluoroscopy without sacrificing accuracy (as reported by Dr. Farshad; up to 50 full spine X-rays less than free-ha technique).
 
Thanks to an online portal with interactive 3d planning, the surgeon determines the entry points for the pedicle screws and sets their trajectory along with the main geometrical parameters.
 
MySpine cases are managed entirely online with no need to install additional software. The case database is available to the surgeon at any time, from anywhere and the information on the website is always kept  up-to-date.
 
MySpine system comprehends Standard guides, suitable for challenging deformities and long constructs, along with Low Profile guides, ideal for lower lumbar regions and degenerative cases.
 
 
MySpine guides are positioned on the vertebra using dedicated contact areas, such as the lamina, spinous and transverse processes, in order to achieve the maximum stability.
MySpine guides are designed to preserve the patient’s anatomy.
Distal windows enhance the field of view during all surgical steps.
 
 
Both standard and low profile guides are now available in Australia, EMEA, Japan, and US.
