 Press Releases

  • Leesburg, Va.—Oct. 5, 2020Stryker announced today that it has surpassed one million Mesa Pedicle Screw implantations globally since its launch in 2006. To celebrate this milestone, Stryker will feature the Mesa Spinal System in a virtual exhibit space during the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting, occurring virtually from Oct. 6-9, 2020.

    Featured across various spinal systems, Mesa Pedicle Screws provide a 60-degree range of motion, variability in the sagittal plane provided by the polyaxial screws along with a derotation capability provided by the monoaxial screws, and rod placement accommodations designed to eliminate screw height adjustment. Its seamless instrumentation is designed to address challenging correction maneuvers in complex spine surgery.

    “When I first started my practice I used almost every system available, then fortunately I came across the Mesa System,” said William Accousti, MD, a spine surgeon at Children’s Hospital New Orleans. “Comparable systems usually require attaching additional equipment to perform derotation after certain corrective maneuvers. With the Mesa System, I am able to correct all three planes of deformity simultaneously.”

    “Mesa has been a significant advancement in pedicle screw technology in the last 30 years,” added John P. Kostuik, MD, former President of the North American Spine and Scoliosis Research Societies, Chief of Orthopedics at Johns Hopkins, and Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of K2M. “With its low profile, locking simplicity and versatility, we created an enhanced system designed to treat pathologies from the cervical spine to the sacrum. I am proud to have been a part of its development and am pleased that it continues to provide value to surgeons worldwide as part of Stryker’s innovative product offering.”  

    Stryker’s Mesa Spinal Platform consists of several top-loading, low-profile systems, including Mesa Deformity, Mesa 2 Deformity, Mesa Degenerative, Mesa Mini, Mesa Rail and Mesa Small Stature.

    “At Stryker, we are driven to continue leading the way in complex spine innovation,” said Eric Major, President of Stryker’s Spine division. “This extraordinary milestone demonstrates our ongoing commitment to advancing state-of-the-art solutions, like Mesa, which have helped surgeons produce positive outcomes in patients who present with many of the world’s most debilitating spinal pathologies.”

    Stryker will showcase its comprehensive Mesa Deformity Platform this week at the 2020 North American Spine Society’s Virtual Annual Meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 11:00 a.m. EDT.

  • Stryker to showcase new Bone Vac autologous bone dust collector at the North American Spine Society annual meeting

    Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA – October 6, 2020 – Stryker will showcase its new Bone Vac autologous bone dust collector at the North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting taking place virtually this week, October 6-9.

    The Bone Vac autologous bone dust collector conveniently collects drilled bone dust for use as autograft material during ortho/spine, cranial, otology or other procedures where bone regeneration is desired. Bone Vac cleanly ejects all collected material via one push with no inverting mesh baskets or scraping out loose bone dust. The result is a putty-like consistency enabling efficient shaping and placement. Bone Vac can be used multiple times during a case to capture all available bone dust.

    “Bone Vac gives our customers the opportunity to maximize the regenerative benefits of gold standard, autologous bone, without disrupting their existing workflow,” said Jim Marucci, General Manager of Stryker’s Neurosurgical business. “We look forward to the positive impact this solution will have on our customers and their patients.”

    Bone dust can contain viable bone-forming cells and expression markers, even after drilling, and reflects osteogenic, osteoinductive and osteoconductive potential 1-6, making it a valuable adjunct to other bone growth agents.

    More information on Stryker’s Bone Vac is available at strykergoodasgold.com.

  • Stryker Unveils Niagara Lateral Access System at NASS 2020
    Latest addition to its comprehensive minimally invasive portfolio for lateral spine surgery

    Leesburg, Va. — Oct. 7, 2020 — Stryker announced today the expansion of its lateral spine portfolio with the full launch of the Niagara Lateral Access System following the completion of 600 surgeries. With the addition of Niagara, Stryker offers a comprehensive and integrated portfolio of minimally invasive lateral solutions for treating spinal deformities in skeletally mature patients. The company will showcase its lateral portfolio during the virtual North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting, Oct. 6-9, 2020.

    The Niagara Lateral Access System is designed to allow surgeons control through precision, visibility, and flexibility. The broad array of instruments is designed for all types of lateral lumbar fusion surgery. From straightforward to complex procedures, total blade precision allows for direct device deployment and thorough disc preparation to streamline workflow and potentially help reduce operative time with lumbar fusion procedures, anterior to psoas approaches, corpectomies and complex cases, including multi-level and deformity correction.

    “As someone who routinely performs lateral spine surgery, Niagara has given me unprecedented precision and versatility for a tubular retractor,” said John Williams, MD, SpineONE, a division of Ortho NorthEast. “The ability to independently move all three blades and drop the intradiscal shim with dilators still intact gives me the necessary control to achieve placement accuracy and mitigate my need for repositioning mid-procedure.”

    The Niagara Lateral Access System’s PEEK-infused carbon fiber features integrated illumination to further enhance visibility intraoperatively, which can reduce the need for intraoperative, image-driven adjustments. This material formulation was specifically engineered to give surgeons the visibility of carbon fiber with the strength and firmness of steel, and even demonstrated equivalence to metal-based retractors in a benchtop test.1

    “Niagara offers visibility that clearly distinguishes this system from other retractors currently on the market,” said Justin Bundy, MD, Augusta Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists. “Design aspects like the PEEK-infused carbon fiber material can help decrease the number of X-rays I need to confirm implant location and placement.”

    The Niagara Lateral Access System complements Stryker’s existing lateral portfolio, including the Cascadia Lateral 3D Interbody System featuring Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology, the Aleutian Lateral Interbody System, the Cayman United Plate System and the Ravine Lateral Access System.

    “Niagara reiterates our mission – together with our customers, we are driven to make healthcare better – which has held strong throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Eric Major, President of Stryker’s Spine division. “Designed in collaboration with leading surgeons specializing in lateral lumbar interbody fusion, Niagara represents a key addition to our minimally invasive lateral portfolio to help ensure that surgeons have the most advanced tools they need to meet a wide variety of operative needs.”
