FIRST SPINE SUMMIT OF THE YEAR!
25 surgeons from around the United States converged on Park City this past weekend for our Winter National Spine Summit.
The first day of the summit addressed cervical disorders (artificial disc, osteoporosis, Anterior Scoliosis correction). Lumbar disorders were primarily the topic of day two.
The robust discussions were led by our expert faculty, Dr. Bob Banco and Dr. Dimitriy Kondrashov.
Our participants came prepared and eager to engage with their peers. We’re so grateful for the knowledge they shared and enjoyed valuable time with all!
NEW SPINEART DEFORMITY SYSTEM PERLA® TL LC – FIRST WORLDWIDE SURGERIES
Spineart is proud to announce the first surgeries involving the PERLA® TL LC system, the new PERLA® TL add-on dedicated to the treatment of spine deformity.
PERLA® TL LC is the extension of the PERLA® TL Posterior Thoracolumbar Fixation System and includes:
- Brand new tower reducers with unilateral / bilateral clip-on versions, long run, powerful reduction and quick release for per-op flexibility
- Exclusive 25D semi-polyaxial screw for optimized control of the vertebral rotation
- Extensive range of implants including hooks, Z-rods and rod connectors
Dr. DECKEY, Orthopaedic Specialty Institute (Orange, CA, USA) declared that “The PERLA® TL LC system is a clear advance for Spineart in treating a wide range of spine deformity cases. The variety of screw insertion, rod reduction and in-situ bending instrument options provide the versatility I need for even my most complex cases. “
Dr. OBEID, University Hospital of Bordeaux (Bordeaux, FRANCE) reported that “PERLA® TL LC allows all strategies of correction for adolescent and adult. The tower reducers are easy to use, efficient and progressive, limiting the risk of screw pull-out. Short and long versions of instruments reduce efforts on surgeon’s shoulders.“
Dr. PEIRO, Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children’s Hospital (Barcelona, SPAIN) commented that “The range of instruments available allows the surgeon to perform any kind of correction maneuver. The new tower reducers combined with 25D screws are powerful tools to perform big corrections. PERLA® TL LC is a great system that makes complex spine deformity surgeries easier.“
Prof. STRUBE, German Center for Orthopedics (Eisenberg, GERMANY) said that “PERLA® TL LC is a solid and efficient deformity solution with lots of improvements. It is easy to handle and enables all parts of 3D-correction with the help of the fantastic 25D screw feature.“
PERLA® TL LC is under limited release.
PERLA® TL and PERLA® TL MIS systems for degenerative open and minimally invasive surgeries are respectively fully available since July 2021 and October 2022.

ENROLLMENT COMPLETION OF THE BAGUERA® L STUDY
Spineart is delighted to announce that 73 patients have been included, thus completing the enrollment of the BAGUERA® L study!
BAGUERA® L is a prosthesis intended as a replacement for a lumbar intervertebral disc, in patients with symptomatic lumbar disc disease. The patients were treated with BAGUERA® L from 2013 to 2018 in France and Germany. This study is monitoring the long-term safety and performance of BAGUERA® L.
We look forward to the results of this study and would like to thank Dr. Pedram from the Centre Aquitain du dos (France), Dr. Janata from the Grenzland MVZ (Germany), as well as their clinical teams, for their involvement and dedication to this clinical study and for reaching this milestone!
Here are a few words from them on the BAGUERA® L:
“BAGUERA® L is a reliable implant for total disc replacement with very good long-term results. The instruments are user friendly and allow exact placement of the implant at the disc space.” commented Dr. Janata.
“BAGUERA® L combines ease of installation, MRI compatibility and the ability to choose a mobile or fixed core according to anatomical conditions.” said Dr. Pedram.
COMPLETION OF THE TRYPTIK®2 C-PLATE STUDY
Spineart is delighted to announce that the TRYPTIK®2 C-Plate study has been recently completed with 42 patients enrolled!
These patients were treated with TRYPTIK®2 C-Plate Anterior Cervical Plate System between 2018 and 2020 in Spain, and retrospective/prospective data were collected to at least 1 year post surgery as per standard practice, to support the clinical safety, performance, and benefit of our device.
We would like to thank Dr. Garcia from the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, as well as his team, for their involvement and dedication to this clinical study.
Dr. Garcia on the TRYPTIK®2 C-Plate: “TRYPTIK®2 C-Plate is easy to use and ensure a very good stability”.
OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE NEW MIS THORACOLUMBAR POSTERIOR FIXATION SYSTEM PERLA® TL MIS
Spineart is proud to announce the official full launch of its new Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) System PERLA® TL MIS.
Built on a successful limited release period, the new MIS system is ready for use worldwide.
At Spineart, as an expert in Spine surgery, we strive to support all innovations that may support the transformation of spine surgery. While MISS appears in the literature as an approach resulting in less tissue trauma, less patient morbidity, and quicker recovery compared with conventional techniques, it has not yet been uniformly adopted globally by spine surgeons. The barriers to adoption may vary, and today with PERLA® TL MIS, Spineart is launching a system designed to simplify and to ease the instrumentation handling during surgery.
PERLA® TL MIS features many novelties designed for smooth procedures, optimizing OR time and allowing the system use in a wide variety of MISS cases.
In line with our tradition of simplicity in its purest senses, the system comes with only 2 sets of smart instruments featuring a secured and guided rod insertion. Designed with the company’s commitment to Quality, Innovation and Simplicity in mind, the PERLA® TL MIS screw offers:
- Extended Tabs and Built-in reduction, enabling OR time optimization
- 6 Cutting edges screw tips for a soft and precise insertion
PERLA® TL MIS benefits from the same attention to details, design and features as the PERLA®, Spineart’s most recent Posterior Fixation platform.
The launch of PERLA® TL MIS demonstrates our continuous commitment to transform spine surgery for the surgeons, patients and hospitals.
