NEO MEDICAL is once again featured in a powerful new publication, showing Neo´s innovative set screw tightening technology supports controlled fixation with the aim to reduce implant loosening, hardware failure and reoperations.

This study, performed in Switzerland with the aim to compare the mechanical performance of different innovative set screw tightening technologies, published in “Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery and research” shows that Neo´s new controlled fixation tightening technology improves the correction potential and the tightening of our unique pedicle screw system over current technologies.

In a nutshell the authors, Prof. Ardura (Spain), David Chenaux (Switzerland), Prof. Pascal-Moussellard (France), and Prof. Hessmann (Germany), conclude that NEO MEDICAL unique “technology shows significantly better construct alignment and stability under constraint with axial gripping forces being about 40% higher in comparison to the flat screw technology” which is being widely used currently on the market.

Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research is the official journal of the French Society for Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (SoFCOT), a peer-reviewed medical journal publishes original scientific work related to all domains oforthopaedics. The impact factor is 1.809.
