Surgalign launched its next generation of the Holo Portal spine guidance system, the medtech company said March 20.
The new upgrades include more than 250 software enhancements, hardware updates and integration with new instruments, according to a news release. The developments were designed to bolster support for lumbar pedicle screw placement.
"As part of our limited market release of Holo Portal last year, we worked closely with our surgeon partners to incorporate their feedback from clinical use to advance Holo Portal’s capabilities," Surgalign President and CEO Terry Rich said in the release. "We expect this release to increase the utilization of Holo Portal among both current and future surgeons, as it better supports screw placement in open procedures, which represents about 80 percent of lumbar fusions, while providing a better workflow and operating environment."
Additional upgrades are planned later in 2023, Mr. Rich said.
