K2M Group Holdings, Inc. According to the company, application features of the MESA system include closed-head screws and previously cleared axial connectors, providing a surgical solution for patients less than 10 years of age to obtain and maintain correction of severe, progressive, life threatening, early-onset spinal deformities associated with thoracic insufficiency, including early-onset scoliosis.
With this additional spine application, the company says surgeons can "utilize components from a traditional fusion construct for a growth-enabling construction, allowing implants to be surgically lengthened on a periodic basis as the patient grows. This growing spine application also offers a growth guidance option, combining standard instrumentation and placement of unlocked closed-head screws at non-fusion levels, to allow for rod passage as the patient grows.
The implants may be used with any cleared K2M rod construct ranging in diameter from 4. Company President and CEO Eric Major said the regulatory milestone, "coupled with our recent data announcement of findings surrounding our motion-preserving scoliosis technology, reinforce our ongoing commitment to achieving the highest level of excellence in developing innovative technologies that provide enduring treatments for young patients suffering from complex spinal deformities, such as early-onset scoliosis and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
In July, K2M announced findings from a multi-year study surrounding the company's acquired motion-preserving scoliosis technology from K-Spine. To watch a video of the MESA being implanted, click here.

New Long-Term, Multicenter Data Supports Silicon Nitride Silicon nitride is one of the oldest spinal fusion materials with a long-term study started in the s. Purdue Unlocks Bacterial Killer Potential in Implant Metals Engineers at Purdue University have found a novel way to imbue metals with significantly effective bacteria killing ability—without adding a separate anti-bacterial compound like silver or coating.
The innovative process laser etches nano-scale textures on the metal surface and, because of the geometry of the resulting surface topography, imbues implant metals with the ability to […]. The group used Medicare reimbursement claims and PearlDiver to identify patients and expenses […]. Well…we embellish. Jeffrey A. Goldstein, M.
Mesa 2 Deformity
Cricket is designed to provide surgeons with the ability to efficiently complete challenging correction manoeuvres in all three anatomical planes, with the goal of achieving three-dimensional balance in patients with complex spinal deformities. The Mesa 2 Cricket is intended to offer a degree approach to more easily capture, manipulate, and align a deformed spine as compared to traditional Mesa deformity correction instrumentation. To date, more than 56, surgical cases using the Mesa deformity spinal system have been completed. Write to us Editor: Will Date will bibamedical. Spinal News International. Latest News. Prioritisation of realignment associated with superior clinical outcomes for surgical cervical deformity patients.
K2M’s MESA Cleared for Kids With Spinal Deformities
The MESA 2 Cricket provides surgeons the ability to efficiently complete challenging correction maneuvers in all three anatomical planes, with the goal of achieving three-dimensional balance in patients with complex spinal deformities. The MESA 2 Cricket offers an innovative, degree approach to more easily capture, manipulate, and align a deformed spine as compared to traditional MESA deformity correction instrumentation. BACS provides solutions focused on achieving balance of the spine by addressing each anatomical vertebral segment with a degree approach to the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes, emphasizing Total Body Balance as an important component of surgical success. K2M Group Holdings, Inc. Since its inception, K2M has designed, developed, and commercialized innovative complex spine and minimally invasive spine technologies and techniques used by spine surgeons to treat some of the most complicated spinal pathologies. K2M has leveraged these core competencies into Balance ACS, a platform of products, services, and research to help surgeons achieve three-dimensional spinal balance across the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes, with the goal of supporting the full continuum of care to facilitate quality patient outcomes.
