Captiva Spine received FDA 510(k) clearance for its TowerLOX-EXT Extended Tab Pedicle Screws for minimally invasive surgery.
Here are three things to know:
1. TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screws are designed to allow percutaneous tower attachment after the extended tabs have been removed.
2. TowerLOX-EXT's narrow insertion path is designed to complement the TowerLOX MIS Pedicle Screw System's patented articulating rod delivery/reduction options and expand the system's capabilities.
3. According to Captiva Spine President Dale Mitchell, the company intended to "reduce insertion pathway, eliminate counter-torque wound expansion and retain the versatility provided by TowerLOX's unique instrumentation for rod delivery, rod reduction and spondylolisthesis reduction."
