Captiva Spine TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screw

Captiva Spine Announces TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screw Receives Clearance

Captiva Spine Receives Clearance to Market TowerLOX-EXT Extended Tab Pedicle Screws

Jupiter, FL, September 2018 – Captiva Spine, Inc., which designs, manufactures and distributes elegant and intuitive spine fusion solutions announced today it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market TowerLOX-EXT® MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screw complementing its TowerLOX® MIS Pedicle Screw System.

TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screw

TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screws provide the narrow insertion of an extended tab pedicle screw and the versatility, reliability, and security of a tower-based MIS pedicle screw.  TowerLOX-EXT’s narrow insertion path coupled with TowerLOX’s patented articulating rod delivery/reduction options expand the capabilities of the system.  Most notably, TowerLOX-EXT allows percutaneous tower attachment after the extended tabs have been removed, establishing a new standard for MIS pedicle screw systems. This is especially important intraoperatively, or for use when extending the fusion at a later date.

Dale Mitchell, President of Captiva Spine, stated “The design rationale and goals developed with our surgeon collaborators guided the creation of TowerLOX-EXT Extended Tab Pedicle Screw.  Our intent was to reduce insertion pathway, eliminate counter-torque wound expansion, and retain the versatility provided by TowerLOX’s unique instrumentation for rod delivery, rod reduction, and spondylolisthesis reduction.”

TowerLOX® MIS Pedicle Screw System already supports MIS, mini-open, and open cases with simple and less invasive rod insertion (using patented Pivotec® Technology) and efficient internal/external rod reduction. TowerLOX-EXT screws provide 15mm of controlled built-in rod reduction above the break-off and in-situ tower attachment capabilities provide a MIS rescue/revision option not available with other extended tab systems.

Captiva Spine’s TowerLOX-EXT MIS Extended Tab Pedicle Screw is one of five new product launches that will be featured at Booth 1649 during the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting held in Los Angeles, September 26-28, 2018.

Captiva Spine’s TowerLOX MIS Pedicle Screw System Receives Clearance for Enhanced Rod Insertion and Reduction

Captiva Spine, Inc., a medical device organization dedicated to creating and maintaining sincere, honest, collaborative relationships to deliver smart, elegant, and intuitive spinal solutions, announced today it has received 510(K) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its enhanced TowerLOX MIS Pedicle Screw System.

  • PivoQuik™ Rod Inserter (patent pending) and Tower Guide offer simple and quick rod alignment and placement.
  • Modular Open Tower – proprietary locking mechanisms (patent pending) designed to prevent inadvertent tower detachment and allow for rod insertion and visualization through the central shaft of the tower.
  • Reduction Set Screw Driver – allows for rod reduction through the tower without wound expansion while simultaneously driving the set screw thus reducing unnecessary steps.
  • PivoRod LP™ (low profile) – provides efficient rod angle adjustment and “fiddle free” detachment for the inserter.

Captiva Spine continues to add new capabilities to the TowerLOX MIS Pedicle Screw System for surgeons who appreciate controlled, repeatable, and less invasive rod delivery and reduction. Dale Mitchell, President and Founder of Captiva Spine said, “We’ve obsessively invested time collaborating with leading MIS spine surgeons, discovered new resources through our vendor partners, and delivered coordinated enthusiasm through all aspects of this project.” Mitchell also stated that, “During our collaborations with numerous spine surgeons it became very clear that aside from creating a thoughtful and elegant MIS pedicle screw system, it was very important that these enhancements allowed the surgeon to approach challenging surgical situations with confidence.”
