FDA Clears Pedicle Screw System for Spinal Disorders

March 26, 2008 – Pioneer Surgical Technology Inc. has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its LowTop pedicle screw system to treat a variety of spinal disorders.

LowTop’s low-profile design, coupled with its “no torque” locking feature, offer surgeons a pedicle screw system complete with poly axial and fixed screws in a variety of modular and pre-assembled size ranges aimed a reducing operating room time and improve patient outcomes. In addition, the poly axial screw has the ability to be locked in any position prior to the locking of the rod, allowing for compression, distraction and rod rotation prior to the final lock.

Pioneer acquired global rights to LowTop’s novel pedicle screw locking system design in 2007 from AlpineSpine LLC. LowTop is expected to be in limited market release later this year.
