RMM incorporates extremely low-profile modular implants and advanced system instrumentation to address alignment and potentially reduce adjacent segment transition syndrome.

The system, when combined with NuVasive access and interbody technologies, is designed to provide a minimally invasive approach to bilateral decompression under complete visualization, interbody fusion and stabilization with pedicle screws. Delivering screw modularity, RMM allows for greater procedural flexibility while enhancing visibility and access.

Furthermore, RMM tulip pull-off strength is comparable to preassembled pedicle screws. Enhanced fixation is achieved with NuVasive’s cortical cancellous traction thread form. The system’s 5.0mm cobalt chrome construct is low in profile and boasts fatigue strength comparable to 5.5mm titanium.

“RMM posterior fixation represents the most advanced midline cortical pedicle screw system on the market,” said minimally invasive spine surgeon Dr. Nitin Khanna, Clinical Faculty of Orthopedic Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine and partner at Orthopedic Specialists of Northwest Indiana.

“The introduction of modular, low-profile tulip heads was designed to address concerns with adjacent segment facet joint impingement. This system furthers NuVasive’s midline portfolio as best-in-class.”

The NuVasive RMM solution utilizes adaptable, streamlined instruments to support both cortical and standard trajectory techniques. The midline approach is further simplified with the integration of access, interbody and fixation, while modular screw assembly is confirmed with visual and tactile feedback.

“Innovation is in our DNA and we are constantly looking for ways to take our existing solutions to the next level,” said Matt Link, executive vice president, strategy, technology and corporate development for NuVasive.
