The ROMEO®2 MIS K wireless system – A new milestone in minimally invasive spine surgery

With its new ROMEO®2 MIS system, Spineart has achieved a new milestone in minimally invasive spine surgery by offering surgeons the worldwide first minimally invasive "K-wireless" spinal fixation system. The unique "K-wireless" feature is based on the streamlined tip of the pedicle screw, designed to allow an effortless and self-centering insertion of the screw into the pedicle canal.
The opportunity to remove the K-wires from the surgery is designed to predict favorably for marked improvements in procedural efficiency, infection risk, and radiation exposure.
The ROMEO®2 MIS system furthermore includes a unique screw or blade based M.I.S. retractor system not requiring any table attachment, as well as the possibility to reduce spondylolisthesis bilaterally, progressively and accurately.
