OrthoPediatrics (NASDAQ:KIDS) has announced the launch of BandLoc DUO, a temporary implant for use in orthopedic surgery.

As quoted in the press release:

The system allows a pedicle-sparing, band passage technique for treating a wide variety of complex spinal pathologies, including spinal trauma, degenerative, and reconstructive surgeries such as scoliosis.

The BandLoc DUO enables bilateral fixation with a single sublaminar passage of the band, making it a simpler and more efficient solution. The implant features a unique pre-assembled design, which incorporates the Company’s RESPONSE set screw technology and accepts multiple rod diameters in Cobalt Chrome or Titanium and includes innovative and ergonomic instrumentation. While BandLoc incorporates the Company’s RESPONSE Spine System, it is compatible with any 5.5mm or 6.0mm spinal correction system on the market and thus can be used in conjunction with competitive systems.

Jeff Smithey, OrthoPediatrics’ Vice President of Spine, commented, “We are excited about the release of BandLoc DUO, which was developed with pediatric orthopedic surgeons to provide another superior option for their pediatric patients in treating complex spinal deformities. Our dedication to improving the lives of children around the world continues to drive our state-of-the-art pediatric solutions. This innovative technology expands our scoliosis portfolio and further represents our commitment as the only company completely focused on providing comprehensive, high-quality solutions for pediatric orthopedic patients.”

Pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mike Albert of Dayton Children’s Hospital in Ohio has championed the technology, stating, “The primary advantages of the new BandLoc DUO are related to increased patient safety and operating room efficiency.  Any technology that reduces risks to children while making surgery simpler with an improved process and instrumentation is a win!”
