MySpine MC, Midline Cortical approach for pedicle screw placement
Medacta announced the addition of the MySpine Midline Cortical Pedicle Screw Placement Guide (MySpine MC) to its MySpine 3D printed patient specific portfolio.
Four things to know:
MySpine MC can be used for inpatient and potential outpatient settings.
It is designed to provide a muscle-sparing approach to posterior lumbar surgery. The MySpine MC technique uses low radiation dose CT-based preoperative planning with a more caudomedial entry point than traditional pedicle screw trajectories and a lower caudal-cranial angle than cortical bone trajectory.
The technique is intended to avoid interference with the cranial facet joints and is designed to accommodate larger screw diameters and lengths, with four areas of cortical bone purchase for enhanced biomechanical fixation.
Intraoperative utilization of 3D-printed guides for pedicle screw placement may reduce cumulative radiation exposure.
