ALACHUA, Fla. (October 26, 2016) – RTI Surgical (RTI) (Nasdaq: RTIX), a global surgical implant company, is pleased to announce a recent 510(k) clearance for the Streamline OCT Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System. This clearance expands the indication for polyaxial screw placement to include the cervical spine, and also includes clearance for a dual diameter transition rod.
The system’s newly expanded indications span from the Occiput to T3, but additional levels of fixation can be accomplished by connecting to other RTI pedicle screw systems through the newly cleared transition rod or currently available rod-to-rod connectors.
“We are excited about the launch of the transition rod, as well as the receipt of the posterior cervical screw indication,” said Brian Hutchison, chief executive officer. “These updates to our Streamline OCT System reflect our passion to deliver surgical solutions that provide a higher standard of patient care and deliver the highest value to our customers.”
