Clever system, nice video (no blood)
Traditional rod/hook/screw systems were fairly agricultural affairs. One company, K2M, Inc., features in its portfolio some of the most elegant solutions to complex spinal problems. In what is a beautifully executed video the company shows its “beam-shaped” rods system and just how cleverly it can be applied to correct spinal curvature deformities. By having a rod shape that is not simply round, K2M’s so-called MESA deformity device offers greater fixation than a simple round rod, in a system which is relatively simple and intuitive to use.
