Hydrocision Launches New Oval tip SpineJet XL(R) Fusion Instruments


11/14/2007 12:41:22 PM

BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HydroCision Inc. (www.hydrocision.com) announced today the U.S. launch of its new SpineJet XL oval tip fluidjet instruments. Specifically designed to enter tight disc spaces, the new oval tip provides surgeons with a new tool that offers a solution to the disc preparation challenges inherent in spinal fusion procedures. The SpineJet XL Fusion Preparation System allows surgeons to more effectively prepare disc spaces for graft implantation during open or minimally invasive lumbar interbody fusion procedures. This fluidjet powered tool combines the power of fluidjet technology with a unique curette design permitting surgeons to simultaneously cut, ablate, and remove hard or soft tissue – such as disc nucleus and endplate cartilage – quickly, safely and effectively, significantly reducing the need for additional instruments. The SpineJet XL removes 95% more posterior contralateral nucleus than conventional devices1 and its unique tip design protects against annular penetration. Designed to work in conjunction with all currently available minimally invasive access systems, it is ideal for posterior fusion procedures.
