Securis Cannulated Screw System
Available from Custom Spine Inc
The specially designed Securis screw system allows the screw to be fully seated in the bone while maintaining full polyaxial motion of the screw head. This design creates a stronger bone fixation with a reduced risk of screw loosening providing patients with a stronger construct for fusion.
Securis Screw features:
» Low Profile: Smaller screw head and smaller rod diameter allows placement in close proximity to the bone.
» Stronger Bone Fixation: Advanced design allows the screw to be fully seated in the bone to create a stronger bone fixation when compared to proud screws.
» Reduced Risk of Screw Loosening: Data shows that fully seated screws can withstand 63% greater shear force than proud screws due to the bone to screw interface. Proud screws must withstand much higher stresses at the screw-bone interface increasing the risk of breakage or loosening.
» Smaller Rod, Superior Stiffness: Chrome-cobalt rods provide superior stiffness when compared to a titanium alloy rod of the same diameter. The 5.0mm chrome-cobalt rods allow for a lower profile construct without sacrificing strength.
» Cannulated Screw, System Versatility: The cannulated screws are available in a variety of diameters and lengths for flexible intraoperative selection. In addition, the screws can be used with an open, mini-open or percutaneous access technique.
» Optimal Screw Profile: Designed to withstand higher pullout forces and can be inserted 40% faster than standard bone screws.
