SAN DIEGO – May 14, 2019 – NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), the leader in spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally integrated solutions, today announced the Company continues its commitment to the Society of Lateral Access Surgery (SOLAS) as a Global Partner, the leading sponsorship level in the partnership program, at the 12th annual SOLAS meeting being held May 16-18, 2019 in Miami, Florida. NuVasive will also participate in exhibit and workshop programs, featuring its comprehensive approach to lateral single-position surgery with the X360™ system integrated with Surgical Intelligence™.
During the meeting, NuVasive will host a lunch symposia, X360 powered by Surgical Intelligence, presented by Brett Braly, MD, and Brian Kwon, MD, on May 17, 2019 from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m. ET. This symposia will discuss the X360 approach, clinical utilization of NuVasive’s Modulus® and Cohere® XLIF® interbody implants and clinical case reviews.
In addition, Dr. Braly will present his paper, “The effect of radiation reduction technology on fluoroscope radiation emission during lumbar interbody fusion for degenerative spinal conditions,” during the scientific sessions highlighting new technologies and techniques on May 17. These preliminary, comparative results suggest the low-dose fluoroscopic images NuVasive’s LessRay image enhancement platform provides are of similar diagnostic capability needed to successfully perform lateral-position interbody fusion and posterior fixation, with nearly 60% reduction in radiation emission.
“NuVasive’s ongoing partnership and support of SOLAS is representative of our deep commitment to advancing the latest knowledge and technological advancements within lateral access surgery,” said Matt Link, president of NuVasive. “As the only SOLAS Global Partner, NuVasive continues to lead lateral spine surgery with enabling technologies, surgeon education and clinical research to help surgeons deliver more reproducible clinical outcomes in spine surgery.”
SOLAS and NuVasive align in their missions to advance minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in spine. MIS is the fastest growing sub-market in spine, driven by innovation from NuVasive that continues to push the boundaries of lateral surgery. Sixteen years ago, NuVasive revolutionized spine surgery with XLIF, the only lateral approach spine procedure supported by extensive clinical evidence in more than 400 peer-reviewed publications. Now, with the recent introduction of the X360 system, NuVasive has delivered the most comprehensive approach to lateral single-position surgery, leveraging advanced techniques and technologies to deliver best-in-class care, while enhancing operating room workflow and efficiency.
