Accelus Introduces LineSider Modular-Cortical System For Posterior Fixation – Medical Device News Magazine

LineSider open Sets

The cortical modular set was designed to facilitate an improved midline approach, offering dual-to-quad lead shanks for increased purchase in cortical bone. The shanks in each system are available in cannulated and solid options. The cortical modular set includes a new midline lumbar retractor with retractor blades in 23mm and 46mm widths, further augmenting the system’s efficacy and Accelus’s commitment to providing comprehensive and adaptable spinal surgery solutions.

“I highly recommend utilizing the LineSider Modular-Cortical System to complement the FlareHawk expandable interbody fusion device,” said Dr. Ryan Martyn, orthopedic spine surgeon at Spine Colorado. “There are very tight tolerances in the machining, so there is no toggle between the shank and the driver when inserting the screw, and the modularity of the system allowed me to do my facetectomies much easier with no tulip in the way.”

In addition to in situ assembly, the LineSider Modular-Cortical System can also be utilized in a pre-assembled fashion, giving surgeons the flexibility of a non-modular screw system as needed. The LineSider Modular-Cortical System builds on Accelus’s legacy of developing adaptable, surgeon-centric solutions. To date, more than 10,000 LineSider screws have been implanted in the United States, and 20,000+ FlareHawk interbody fusion devices have been implanted in 23 countries worldwide.

“The LineSider Modular-Cortical System exemplifies our commitment to elevating the surgical experience and improving patient outcomes. The system not only enhances surgical visibility and flexibility but also maintains our previously set standard for reducing the number of LineSider trays required, helping to optimize O.R. setup and procedural workflow.”
