Medtronic has been rewarded with a CE Mark for a new non-surgical procedure it has devised that is suitable for young children suffering from life-threatening curvature of the spine. It provides a new option for patients with spinal deformities and is being launched across the European economic area, delivering growth-guided instrumentation to mimimise the number of operations children require. Employing the SHILLA Growth Guidance System, the procedure can correct and maintain curvature in cases of early-onset scoliosis to permit natural growth of patients' bodies.
