NuVasive launched the NuVasive Tube System and Excavation Micro for minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusions and decompressions, the devicemaker said Nov. 7.
The launch expands NuVasive's P360 portfolio, according to a company news release. NTS and Excavation Micro are designed to boost workflow speed and improve safety and reproducability.
"The tube systems on the market haven't really changed much in the past 20 years," neurosurgeon David Yam, MD, said in the release. "Now with NTS, I'm able to tackle two procedures with the same system through the incredible access design ... "Even with more complex surgeries, I'm able complete the case through a tube, rather than reverting to an open procedure."
