Medtronic launches Powerease system for spine surgery

Medical Company Product News

Medtronic has announced the launch of its new Powerease system of electronic instruments for use in instrumented or reconstructive spine surgery.

It is used for drilling, tapping and driving specialised implants during spinal operations and has been shown to be significantly more time-efficient than manual methods, while also offering better control and reducing fatigue among surgeons.

The system offers compatibility with the CD Horizon Solera Spinal System and the TSRH 3Dx Spinal System, two of the market's leading pedicle screw platforms, while also being integrated with other advanced Medtronic surgical technologies.

Medtronic's spinal and surgical technologies business units allied to develop Powerease, which makes use of the latter division's Integrated Power Console technology.

Doug King, senior vice-president and president of Medtronic Spinal, said: "We're pleased to couple advanced power technology with our proprietary neuromonitoring and surgical navigation systems, which enable a more informed procedure."

Last month, the company announced results from a clinical trial of its Symplicity renal denervation system, showing the long-term benefits of the technology.
