From a sacroiliac joint compression device to a surgical platform, here are five spine and orthopedic product launches that have caught the attention of readers in 2021:

1. Globus Medical launched the Creo One robotic screw for spine surgery in April. It's the first screw designed to be used with the Excelsius GPS robot. It simplifies the pedicle preparation of Globus Medical's modular pedicle screw platform while maintaining navigational accuracy.

2. Orthopedic device company Sacrix launched the third iteration of SacroFuse, a threaded compression device designed for immediate stabilization of the sacroiliac joint. The new design is a screw-cage hybrid intended to facilitate insertion and osseointegration, the company said in January. The device is self-drilling, self-tapping and compresses across the sacroiliac joint.

3. NuVasive launched its Cohere TLIF-O implant for posterior spine surgery in October. It utilizes NuVasive's PEEK technology and is designed with lordosis in the oblique plane to maintain coronal alignment and restore sagittal balance.

4. NuVasive's Pulse platform for spine surgery received FDA 510(k) approval, and it was launched in July. Pulse is an integrated platform made to increase safety and efficiency in spine surgery.

5. Alphatec launched the InVictus OsseoScrew expandable spinal fixation system in September. It is designed to be an alternative to the conventional use of cemented fenestrated screws in patients with compromised bone and helps restore spinal column integrity.
