ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CoreLink, LLC, a leading designer and manufacturer of spinal implant systems, today announced the commercial launch for the Tiger® MIS X-Tab Pedicle Screw System. This percutaneous solution expands the Tiger platform and is designed for correction of the thoracolumbar spine. It delivers a breadth of screw and rod options to treat patients suffering from a wide variety of spinal pathologies with minimal tissue disruption.
“This addition to our proven tower-based Tiger MIS system allows for true percutaneous screw placement and more efficient surgeries,” said Jay Bartling, CEO of CoreLink. “We anticipate several more product launches this year as we continue to provide more comprehensive solutions. This system was a necessary addition for surgeons looking for a minimally invasive fixation device to complement our robust lateral fusion platform.”
The Tiger MIS X-Tab System integrates seamlessly with the standard tower-based Tiger MIS System with polyaxial, extended tab pedicle screws in various lengths and diameters. This allows for full cross-compatibility for mini-open and percutaneous approaches as well as the creation of longer hybrid constructs. Additionally, the low profile extended tabs are 130mm long to facilitate implantation in larger patients. They feature a break-away top allowing for the extensions to cross when implanting in the lower lumbar spine.
