About Universal Clamp Spinal Fixation System
The system is now cleared for treatment of idiopathic and neuromuscular scoliosis in patients eight years of age or older.
Introduced in Europe in 2006 and the U.S. in 2008, the system was designed for use in conjunction with spinal deformity procedures. Since its introduction, the system has been used in more than 24,000 procedures worldwide and is used in conjunction with spinal fusion surgeries.
Tthe system uses a pedicle-sparing approach for malformed or small thoracic pedicles while still providing similar stability to pedicle screw constructs. A clamp band spreads contact forces over a greater surface area, thereby, says the company, reducing the risk of pulling through the lamina compared to wires and hooks. The system's reduction instrumentation allows surgeons to sequentially reduce deformity and spread the reduction forces over multiple levels.
