New Medtronic product aids spinal surgery

Fridley-based Medtronic launched a new product for use in spinal surgery in the U.S. It is a new, highly flexible ceramic scaffold that can be used in combination with a patient’s own bone to fuse multiple levels of the posterolateral spine.

The Mastergraft Strip was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration earlier in the year. It provides surgeons with a bone grafting option that offers a continuous latticework for longer grafting procedures at the back of the spine – procedures that are often performed when the spine loses stability or its natural shape.
