ATEC’s booth will showcase the Company’s complete portfolio of innovative spine solutions, including the following:
The PTP Approach. Designed by the team that created the lateral technique for spine fusion, PTP advances lateral surgery with a more predictable and reproducible approach for a wide range of patient pathologies. Positioning the patient prone allows for a streamlined surgical approach that addresses many of the challenges that have limited adoption of lateral spine fusion. Specifically, the PTP approach is designed to deliver the benefits of less invasive surgery, while minimizing unnecessary patient repositioning, enhancing time efficiencies, providing surgeons with increased optionality and improving the reproducibly of achieving spinal alignment objectives. The comprehensive approach seamlessly integrates the PTP Patient Positioning System, the SIGMA-PTP Access System, IdentiTi indication-specific interbody solutions, the InVictus Spinal Fixation System, and the SafeOp Neural InformatiX System, which objectively monitors the direction and relative proximity of nerves, as well as the health of the lumbar plexus.
EOSedge™. Capable of capturing standardized, full-body and localized weight-bearing imaging while optimizing radiation exposure, EOS edge is designed to enable a 3D model of patients’ skeletal systems, providing unprecedented diagnostic and surgical planning capabilities. EOS technology is being integrated with ATEC’s approach-specific solutions to better inform surgery and enhance the predictability of outcomes by allowing surgeons to more effectively assess the patient’s full-body alignment, establish surgical objectives, and simulate surgery with optimized implants.
SafeOp™ Neural InformatiX System. The SafeOp Neural InformatiX System meets an unmet need for objective, intraoperative neural information during surgery by seamlessly integrating critical neural information into ATEC procedural solutions. SafeOp is designed with electromyography (EMG) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) to provide surgeons with actionable information regarding both the location and the health of nerves at risk during surgery. The system integrates seamlessly into operating rooms with a small footprint and wireless connectivity.
InVictus™ Posterior Fixation System. The InVictus System is a comprehensive cervico-thoracic-lumbo-sacral spinal fixation platform uniquely designed to address the spine from occiput to illium. InVictus has been engineered to provide adaptable, predictable surgical treatment of a range of pathologies from complex deformity to degenerative conditions through open, MIS, or hybrid approaches. Featuring familiar and consistent instrument design and dependable Helical Flange® technology, the system offers robust instrumentation for even the most challenging procedural scenarios. The platform is fully compatible with the SafeOp Neural InformatiX System, enabling real-time trajectory and placement confirmation during stylet and screw insertion, providing a predictable fixation solution.
ATEC, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Alphatec Spine, Inc., EOS imaging S.A. and SafeOp Surgical, Inc., is a medical device company dedicated to revolutionizing the approach to spine surgery through clinical distinction. ATEC’s Organic Innovation Machine™ is focused on developing new approaches that integrate seamlessly with the Company’s expanding AlphaInformatiX Platform to better inform surgery and more safely and reproducibly achieve the goals of spine surgery. ATEC’s vision is to become the Standard Bearer in Spine. For more information, visit us at www.atecspine.com.
