Medtronic Earns FDA Clearance for Patient-Specific Spinal Rods

June 7, 2021

The FDA has given Medtronic 510(k) clearance for its UNiD patient-specific rods for use with several of the company’s spinal systems.

The rods, which are tailored before surgery to best match the individual patient, have been cleared to be used with Medtronic’s Horizon, Solera, Voyager and Infinity occipito-cervico-thoracic spinal systems.

The systems are used to precisely align the patient’s spine and treat scoliosis, trauma, tumors and complex degenerative conditions in adults, as well as idiopathic scoliosis in adolescents.
