Alphatec launched the InVictus OsseoScrew expandable spinal fixation system, according to a Sept. 29 news release.

The device is designed to be an alternative to the conventional use of cemented fenestrated screws in patients with compromised bone and helps restore spinal column integrity. InVictus OsseoScrew integrated with the InVictus minimally invasive and open platforms, along with Alphatec's SafeOp automated EMG.

Christopher DeWald, MD, of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush in Chicago, described the system as "a solution for an underserved patient population."

"The system allows the surgeon a controlled expansion to optimize fixation with improved screw purchase, while helping to minimize the clinical challenge of pedicle screw failure by pull out," he said in a news release. "It can be elegantly integrated with SafeOp to provide a more predictable technique and reinforce confidence during screw insertion."
