Written by Anuja Vaidya | April 26, 2016 | Print  |

RTI Surgical launched the Release Laminoplasty Fixation System.

Here are four key notes:

 

1. The Release system is intended for central spinal cord decompression from C3 to T3 in laminoplasty procedures.

 

2. The system is comprised of plates and screws that secure the opened lamina to the lateral mass at each affected level, maintaining expansion of the spinal canal.

 

3. The system also features a low-profile plate to help minimize the risk of plate impingement on adjacent, healthy facet joints.

 

4. The screw design features a thread form that aims to enhance bone purchase.

 

"With the addition of the Release Laminoplasty Fixation System to our spine portfolio we are able to enter the posterior laminoplasty market, which is a new market segment for us," said Brian K. Hutchison, president and CEO of RTI Surgical.
