CHICAGO, IL: DePuy Synthes Spine launches EXPEDIUM VERSE spinal system powering medical practitioners with all-in-one pedicle screw system. It allows the surgeons to perform multiple spinal maneuvers during spinal fusion surgery with a single implant type with minimal requirement of instruments.

The system comes with correction key which is equipped to expand implant functionality and provides intraoperative flexibility by reducing the number of screws needed. It is tailor built to reduce procedure time, decrease the number of instrument trays required and also help in sterilization cost reduction.  The most striking feature includes the reduced risk of screw pullout or migration when compared to traditional screws and acts as a single source to address complex spine needs.

"The EXPEDIUM VERSE Spinal System was designed with the changing healthcare environment in mind. Our goal from the beginning was to develop an implant-based system that would benefit patients while supporting procedural efficiency and value. We have achieved that goal with the EXPEDIUM VERSE Spinal System, which has the potential to optimize surgical correction, improve patient outcomes and reduce costs,” says Dan Wildman, Platform Leader, DePuy Synthes Spine.

The system is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine. The EXPEDIUM system is a hook, rod and screw system comprised of variety of implants options including Polyaxial, Uniplanar, Monoaxial, and Reduction Pedicle Screws.
