Integrated Global Alignment is a platform comprised of procedurally based technologies designed to enhance clinical and economic outcomes by increasing the predictability of achieving global alignment in all spinal procedures. Integration across the surgical workflow allows the surgeon to:

  • Calculate alignment parameters with preoperative planning tools.
  • Correct the anterior and posterior column with comprehensive procedural solutions with the industry’s only real-time intraoperative assessment.
  • Confirm the restoration and preservation of global alignment postoperatively.

iGA OverviewWhy Alignment Matters

Current and emerging data illustrates a direct correlation between spinal alignment and long term clinical outcomes.* Specific spinopelvic parameters, including the mismatch of pelvic incidence (PI) and lumbar lordosis (LL), are key predictors in determining successful patient outcomes in all spinal procedures from single- to multi-level pathologies. NuVasive is committed to a global approach for assessing, preserving, and restoring spinal alignment in an effort to promote surgical efficiencies, lasting patient outcomes, and improved quality of life.

NuvaPlanning Portfolio

Platform of 3 software solutions designed to intuitively navigate through the surgical workflow to restore and preserve patient alignment.

SIMPLIFIED PREOPERATIVE PLANNING

Preoperatively calculate and evaluate alignment parameters and implant integration by accurately modeling surgery to create a reliable plan with clear results.

REAL-TIME INTRAOPERATIVE ASSESSMENT

Intraoperatively correct the spine and receive immediate feedback on alignment values, with the industry’s only real-time intraoperative assessment tool, to help ensure alignment goals are gained and maintained.

INTUITIVE POSTOPERATIVE CONFIRMATION

Postoperatively confirm the success of the procedure and effect on alignment by reviewing surgical results and easily comparing those results to the surgical plan.

XLIFACR and ALIFACR

Alternative methods to traditional open posterior procedures that allow surgeons to address sagittal alignment from the anterior column, while adhering to standard deformity principles.1

DECREASED MORBIDITY

XLIF ACR potentially decreases or eliminates the need to perform extensive posterior osteotomies resulting in decreased morbidity.

RESTORATION OF ALIGNMENT

2/3 of lumbar lordosis is achieved between the L4 and S1 lumbar levels. ALIF ACR enables surgeons to rebuild lumbar lordosis at the base of the spine, where it matters most.

Bendini

The Bendini® spinal rod bending system expedites manual rod manipulation via computer-assisted bend instructions.

DECREASED O.R. TIME

Predictable, reproducible rod bending helps surgeons create rods, often requiring a single pass.1

RESTORED ALIGNMENT

Surgeon-driven menus enable rapid intraoperative alignment assessment and rod customization. Coronal and sagittal design tools help guide surgeons to achieve alignment goals prior to exiting the O.R.

MINIMIZED SCREW PULLOUT

Patient-specific rods are designed to minimize forces on the screw bone interface and prevent unnecessary preloading of the construct.2
