Precision Spine® Launches Nationally the SureLOK™ MIS 3L Percutaneous Screw System

HRS Scientific Sessions: Boston Scientific LBCT

During the Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions this week, Boston Scientific announced positive LBCT data underscoring the safety and efficacy of multi-site pacing (MSP) over conventional cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), as well as poster presentations on real-world use of the WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) device and next-generation WATCHMAN FLX LAAC device as alternatives to oral anticoagulation therapy for stroke risk reduction in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.

The SureLOK MIS 3L Percutaneous Screw System, which provides spine surgeons with outstanding versatility and flexibility in terms of procedural approaches and application of its various components.

“The inherent versatility of the SureLOK MIS 3L System enables it to be used in Open, Mini-Open or Percutaneous MIS approaches, or even a combination of any of those approaches during the same procedure,” said Phillip Kravetz, MD, who worked with the Precision Spine design team in the development of the system. “This flexibility provides surgeons with a range of options intended to optimize efficiency and effectiveness in both planning and performing successful spinal procedures.”

Component versatility is another key element of the SureLOK MIS 3L System, which consists of cannulated pedicle screws, straight and pre-curved rods, and locking caps, all of which are available in a variety of sizes that enable surgeons to more closely match each patient’s anatomy. The screws feature a 150mm Extended Tab designed to allow for low profile, MIS Percutaneous placement with 50mm of controlled rod reduction. In addition, an Open Tulip design helps ease rod introduction while the proximal tapered triple lead thread helps enhance efficiency in placing screws and optimize pull-out strength. The screw’s self-tapping tip is designed to help ease insertion and a square thread locking cap assists in reducing the potential for cross threading. The system’s easy-to-use percutaneous rod inserter features a bulleted tip, keyed hex end and 15° rod angle which helps ease rod insertion and release; the inserter shaft is designed to glide easily through the tulips for fast and efficient rod delivery. The system also includes a reliable compression/distraction system.

The indications of the SureLOK MIS 3L System provide further versatility. The system can be used in the immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine. It may also be used for non-cervical pedicle screw fixation for severe spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, curvatures, spinal tumor, pseudarthrosis and failed previous fusion.

“The SureLOK MIS 3L Percutaneous Screw System represents another example of how Precision Spine is making good on its commitment to develop minimally invasive devices that feature the versatility and flexibility surgeons need to help improve OR efficiency and achieve positive patient outcomes,” said Chris DeNicola, Chief Operating Officer of Precision Spine.
