Medtronic launches new Pure Titanium Coating fusion devices

22nd October 2014

Medtronic has announced the international launch of a new range of titanium-coated peek interbody fusion devices for the spine.

The Pure Titanium Coating (PTC) platform includes four products: the Capstone PTC Spinal System, Clydesdale PTC Spinal System, Anatomic Peek PTC Cervical Fusion System and Cornerstone-SR Ti- Coated Anatomical Cervical Cage.

They help to restore normal disc height for patients experiencing pain caused by compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots. Disc height restoration procedures have been shown to reduce the pressure on the nerve roots and the spinal cord, reducing pain levels.

Medtronic's range is constructed using a combination of the two materials most commonly used in interbody fusion procedures, titanium and polyetheretherketone.

Doug King, president of the spine business and senior vice-president at Medtronic, said: "We will continue to leverage our innovation to produce more advanced and differentiated products for surgeons to use to treat their patients."

The firm recently announced a new executive leadership team that will soon take charge of Medtronic following the completion of its planned takeover of Covidien.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801755922-ADNFCR
