German MIS spinal technologies specialist joimax®, has taken the opportunity presented by this week’s 66th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery (DGNC) to introduce its new iLESSYS® Delta system for spinal stenosis treatment.
joimax is primarily focused on the development, production and marketing of technologies and methods for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery.
The company’s newly launched iLESSYS Delta, an advanced development of the joimax iLESSYS technology, is suitable for dorsal and dorso-lateral treatment of central spinal canal stenosis. The system enables a large area to be decompressed by means of the interlaminar access, guided by endoscopic-assisted vision.
The instrument set includes specially developed tools that enable extensive, yet gentle, tissue-sparing decompression. The 6 mm working channel of the new endoscope allows for the use of large shaver blades designed for bone resection and endo-kerrisons.
“Since the access to the spine is the same as with the already well-established iLESSYS technique, usage is very straightforward.” said Dr. Guntram Krzok, orthopedic surgeon from Waltershausen, Germany after testing the new system at a joimax workshop early this year. “I was impressed by the new scope which delivers outstanding image quality. With the specialized instrument set, it is finally possible to achieve decompression of central spinal canal stenosis.”
“iLESSYS Delta is a logical addition to our portfolio. Not only is the system suitable for endoscopic decompression, but it also allows the parallel implantation of cages. This way we can achieve dorsal decompression and stabilization in one step,” comments Wolfgang Ries, CEO and founder of joimax.
