Stryker’s Spine Division to Feature Comprehensive Product Portfolio at AANS 2017 Conference

Stryker’s Spine division will exhibit its comprehensive suite of spinal products at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting, April 22–26, 2017, at the Los Angeles Convention Center (booth No. 1301). This exhibition includes a number of advanced spinal products and technologies that Stryker’s Spine division has introduced in the past year. The company also will offer a Lunch-and-Learn educational program for AANS members attending the meeting.

“This is an exciting time, both for the field of spinal surgery and for Stryker’s Spine division,” said Bradley Paddock, President of the company’s Spine division. “Our expanding portfolio of spinal procedural innovations and differentiated technologies demonstrates our commitment to bringing state-of-the-art products to physicians and their patients. We will continue to increase and strengthen our leadership position in this segment and are thrilled to showcase our latest technology advances at the AANS conference.”

Stryker’s Spine division’s products offer advancements for both traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Recently introduced technologies that will be highlighted at the meeting include:

  • The Tritanium Posterior Lumbar (PL) Cage, a 3D-printed interbody fusion device designed to aid in lumbar spinal fixation for patients with degenerative disc disease, including up to Grade 1 spondylolisthesis, and degenerative scoliosis. It is manufactured using Stryker’s proprietary Tritanium Technology, which allows for the creation of porous structures that are designed to mimic cancellous bone in pore size, level of porosity, and interconnectivity of the pores.1 The cage is now offered in a variety of new sizes, which were introduced at the 2017 AAOS conference in March.
  • Aero-C Cervical Stability System (Aero-C), the only StraightForward anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) device that offers uniform compression across the interbody space.2 Using Aerofoil™ Compression Technology, Aero-C is designed to pull the vertebral bodies toward the implant as it is inserted, creating compressive forces at the implant-to-endplate interface.2
  • Xia CT (Xia 4.5 Cortical Trajectory), which includes implants and instruments used in less invasive LITe LIF posterior lumbar interbody fusion procedures for patients with degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, and trauma. The cortical trajectory procedure facilitates a smaller midline incision to help achieve decompression, fixation, and fusion.3 It also is intended to be more muscle sparing than standard open procedures that require lateral dissection, and its reduced incision may allow for more efficient exposure and closure time.3
  • The LITe BIO Delivery System, a hand-held device used to facilitate delivery of bone graft material to spinal surgery sites, simplifies graft delivery, accommodates a surgeon’s preferred graft materials,4 and allows for direct visualization of graft placement. The unique design of the LITe BIO Delivery System provides surgeons with a single-handed method to deliver any type of autograft, allograft, or synthetic bone graft material without obstructing visibility. The innovative delivery tool provides tactile, visual, and audible confirmation of bone graft delivery, and the mallet-free system eliminates the impaction of bone graft.

Stryker’s Spine division will host the Lunch-and-Learn seminar, “Tritanium: A Novel Highly Porous Titanium Alloy for Interbody Fusion Procedures,” Monday, April 24 from 1:10–1:55 p.m. The seminar will be presented by Matthew J. McGirt, M.D., from the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of North Carolina.
