SAN DIEGO, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), a leading medical device company focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally-integrated solutions, today announced it will showcase the Company's new RELINE® Trauma portfolio and O.R. virtual reality (VR) simulation at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting held April 22-26, 2017 in Los Angeles.
Launched earlier this week, RELINE Trauma will help define the standard of spine trauma care by providing surgeons the flexibility to customize their approach intra-operatively, including traditional open, MAS® (Maximum Access Surgery) or hybrid procedures, depending on the pathology and patient needs. Seamlessly integrated with the Company's Integrated Global Alignment® (iGA) platform, RELINE Trauma allows for controlled fracture correction throughout the procedure, with or without a rod present in the construct.
"RELINE Trauma is the most versatile trauma system on the market," said Jason Hannon, NuVasive's president and chief operating officer. "In collaboration with our surgeon partners, we've succeeded in creating a platform designed not only to improve clinical outcomes, but also to reduce the total cost of care."
Additionally, NuVasive will showcase an immersive VR experience designed to familiarize surgeons with the techniques of the RELINE Trauma system. The VR simulation provides step-by-step instruction of the procedure, while helping develop the associated muscle memory required to address a burst fracture in an interactive O.R. setting.
