MEDICREA (Paris:ALMED) announced today it has received clearance from the U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the PASS LP Iliac Fixation withinthe United States. This new Iliac Fixation supplements the PASS LP range, aultra Low Profile Polyaxial Spine System launched recently.
The PASS LP Spinal System includes polyaxial anchorages such as pedicle screws,sacral plates, hooks/claws, rods/rod-plates, sacral/iliac screws and a UNIQUEvariety of active connectors that permit realignment of vertebrae (fracture) orcorrection of vertebral axial rotation (full 3D correction of a deformity).
The PASS LP Spinal System is ideal totreat long or complexdeformities orcurvatures (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis). Adequate reduction canbe achieved by evenly distributing forces applied to both rods at the same timethus limiting excessive load and stress on the anchorage points. The rods arepre-bent to the desired curve in the sagittal plane. Progressive reduction ofthe deformity is achieved by alternately tightening all the nuts on both rods atthe same time thereby significantly reducing the stress applied on the screwsand hooks compared to other fixation systems on the market.
