icotec Announces Launch of Award-Winning VADER®one Pedicle Screw System at NASS 2019

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- icotec Medical, Inc. a US-based subsidiary of Swiss icotec AG today announced that it will unveil its VADER®one pedicle screw system during the 34th annual meeting of the North American Spine Society in Chicago, September 25-28, 2019.

X-ray image of a stabilized section of the thoracic spine. The radiolucency of BlackArmor® material uncovers a clear view on the anatomical structures. Only markers remain visible to allow for verification of correct implant position. In the two cranial levels of the instrumented spine the implant contours are visualized for illustrative purposes.

VADER®one, made from icotec's unique BlackArmor® Carbon/PEEK material, is cleared by the FDA for restoration of the spinal column in advanced stage tumor patients. By avoiding imaging artifacts, the radiolucent BlackArmor® material specifically enhances the outcome of x-ray, CT and MRI modalities. Patients can now be considered for a larger variety of treatment options with improved therapy planning, dose delivery and follow-up evaluation.

A panel of leading surgeons selected the VADER®one pedicle screw system for the 2019 Spine Technology Award. The winning entries will be announced at NASS 2019. "We are extremely proud that VADER®one was selected as one of the most innovative, enduring and practical products in 2019," says Roger Stadler, CEO of icotec AG, Switzerland.

With icotec's system, surgeons don't have to change their standard surgical technique as VADER®one allows for minimally invasive or open surgical spine approaches. During NASS 2019 experienced US tumor surgeons will be present at icotec's booth to share their expertise and experience peer-to-peer with their colleagues each day during the meeting breaks. Hands-on demonstrations to the instrument and implant sets as well as insights into the unique BlackArmor® technology will be presented.

The icotec team is looking forward to meeting you at booth #3727 during NASS 2019 in Chicago.
