St. Louis-based CoreLink designed CentraFix as a posterior thoracolumbar pedicle screw for less invasive spinal fixation, often used with a medial-to-lateral approach known as cortical bone trajectory (CBT).
According to a news release, that technique allows for maximum contact of the pedicle screw with cortical bone with the aim of reducing incision size, limiting muscular and vascular injury and improving initial fixation.
CentraFix also features modular cobalt chrome tulip heads and titanium alloy screw shanks in various lengths and diameters for allowing screw placement in denser cortical bone, CoreLink said. he tulip heads minimize tissue disruption and simplify distraction without compromising strength.
“The CentraFix System provides unmatched intraoperative visualization and surgical flexib…
