Minimally invasive fusionless technique for adolescent scoliosis

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

ApiFix Ltd. says its minimally invasive, fusionless technique for treating adolescent idiopathic scoliosis effectively remedies three hotly contested areas in spine: motion preservation, minimally invasive techniques and deformity correction. The device consists of an implantable ratcheting rod that only increases in length over a short segment of the spine, at the apex of the scoliotic curve, compared to a long segment) required for fusion surgery, and it requires only two pedicle screws to anchor the rod.
