IMAST: Positive Data from Study of Pedicle Screws Placement with Robotic Guidance

Mazor Robotics, Ltd., a developer of innovative guidance systems and complementary products, announced results of data being presented July 16-19 at the 21st International Meeting on Advanced Spine Techniques (IMAST) meeting in Valencia, Spain.

An e-poster entitled, Retrospective, Five-Center Analysis of 3,270 Pedicle Screws Placed with Robotic Guidance in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), reports that 223 patients with AIS in five centers, had a total of 3,270 pedicle screws placed using the Renaissance system with over 99 percent accuracy.

A podium presentation, entitled, Retrospective Analysis of Feasibility and Performance of Robotic Guidance for Placement of Pedicle Screws in 223 Adolescents with Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), highlights that 3,270 screws were placed with the Renaissance system while fluoroscopy use was limited to 1.58 seconds per screw.

“Anatomic constraints in AIS frequently confound placement of pedicle screws, especially when instrumenting the most deformed regions of a curved spine,” said Dr. Dennis P. Devito of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the lead investigators of the study. “The accuracy of screw placement and reduced exposure to radiation per case results in safer operations for both the patient and surgical staff.”
