Westmont, Ill. SpineCraft is pleased to announce the global completion of 15,000 APEX SPINE SYSTEM surgeries. The APEX SPINE SYSTEM is a comprehensive and versatile posterior instrumentation system designed for complex deformity correction as well as tumor, trauma and degenerative procedures. APEX is available in both the US and international marketplace and includes a wide range of implants and instrumentation that has made APEX a proven and reliable system for surgeons throughout the world.
To date and since it was launched in 2006, APEX Spine System has treated more than 15,000 patients globally and has completed over 3,000 deformity and complex spine surgeries. This milestone represents a significant achievement for SpineCraft. This robust and very comprehensive spine system, now in its third generation and substantially expanded, has been used to treat patients with Cerebral Palsy, Marfans Syndrome, idiopathic scoliosis (adult and adolescent), hyperkyphosis from congenital deformities, post traumatic scoliosis, neuromuscular scoliosis, Marquio’s Syndrome and post TB kyphosis. This system has been also used in treating complex revision spine surgeries, and a wide range of degenerative spine problems. As demonstration of the flexibility of the APEX system, the youngest patient to be operated on using it was 8 years old and the oldest patient was 81.
SpineCraft has also been keen to participate in providing the much needed care by making available the APEX system to patients in less developed countries as well as through Scoliosis research Society (SRS) global outreach program and educational & training activities to surgeons who are seeking such knowledge.
APEX SPINE SYSTEM is designed for use with 6.0 mm and 5.5 mm titanium and cobalt chromium rods. All rods are interchangeable within the same implants and instrumentation providing the surgeon valuable intraoperative flexibility while reducing the hospital inventory requirements. In addition, APEX includes a wide-range of screw, hook and connector options.
