RTI Surgical Inc. announced the full market launch of the Streamline OCT System, which is designed to promote fusion of the occipto-cervico-thoracic spine.
“The Streamline OCT System is another exciting addition to our spine portfolio,” Brian K. Hutchison, RTI Surgical president and chief executive officer, stated in a press release. “We are proud to have a system that offers a range of implants where surgeons can tailor treatment for their patients and provide a more streamlined surgical experience.”
The system offers a high-angle pedicle screw that can achieve 60° of angulation in any direction, which provides intraoperative flexibility and options for screw placement, according to details in the press release. It also offers an occipital plate design to reduce the need for extreme rod bends.
The Streamline OCT System is intended for use in the treatment of such conditions as spinal stenosis, tumors, degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis. It also allows a rigid construct to be created from occiput to T3 through its wide range of implants, according to the press release.
