About Bendini

The Bendini spinal rod bending system offers tools which can assist in complex degenerative deformity cases. The procedure is designed to benefit surgeons and patients by providing intraoperative flexibility and restored alignment.

Benefits of Bendini

Decreased O.R. Time
Predictable, reproducible rod bending helps surgeons create patient-specific 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 minimize forces on the screw-bone interface and prevent unnecessary preloading of the construct.2

Integration with NuvaMap® O.R.

  • NuvaMap O.R. is an NVM5® software application which enables intraoperative assessment of various patient anatomical parameters, such as cervical lordosis or lumbar lordosis, through the use of lateral fluoroscopic images.
  • When used in conjunction with NuvaMap O.R., the alignment parameter display in the Bendini application helps to facilitate quantified and informed sagittal rod bending to assist restoring alignment.
