Hot on the heels of telling us about its plans to launch ViviGen cellular bone matrix, DePuy Synthes Spine is also trumpeting the introduction of enhancements to its SYNAPSE™ System, so called SYNAPSE Advanced enhancements. This is a collection of new implants and instruments for the SYNAPSE Platform, which is used for posterior stabilization of the upper spine. These enhancements are designed to provide more surgical options and enhance usability during posterior stabilization of the upper spine.
The company has also gained U.S. FDA clearance to market its SYNAPSE System and EXPEDIUM® Spine System together for the first time through the use of Titanium Dual Diameter Rods. This clearance will provide surgeons with many more options for treating disease spanning from the cervical region of the spine into the thoracic and lumbar regions. The two systems are global market leaders in the treatment of both cervical and thoracolumbar spinal conditions.
