Medtronic makes Infinity OTC spinal system available in US: 4 key notes

Spinal Tech

Medtronic launched the Infinity Occipitocervical-Upper Thoracic System in the U.S.

Here are four things to know:

1. The Inifinity OCT System integrates navigation and biologics with Medtronic's devices and instruments to improve efficiency with spinal fusion workflows. When the system is paired with the O-Arm Imaging System and StealthStation from Medtronic, it can be a fully enabled procedural solution for efficiently performing complex posterior cervical procedures.

2. The system is designed to immobilize and stabilize the spine during fusion. The system has a multi-axial screw with 60 degrees of angulation in any direction, a set screw with a quick-start thread to minimize cross threading and 3 mm and 5.5 mm diameter screws to fit a broader clinical application.

3. The technology is indicated for degenerative disc disease, instability or deformity, tumors, traumatic spinal fractures and traumatic dislocations.

"With Infinity, I can focus on delivering the best patient care during complex procedures knowing that every component was precisely designed with modularity and versatility in mind," said Greg Trost, MD, a neurosurgeon at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison. "And an integrated procedural solution with Stealth navigation and Infinity was game-changing as a 3D-view of the anatomy allows me the precision to place pedicle screws with confidence and accuracy."

4. The product launch comes nearly a week after the company announced plans to fully acquire Mazor Robotics for $1.64 billion. The company plans to continue developing integrated solutions with the robotic-assisted technology.
