ST. PETERSBURG, FL, September 2018 — Shukla Medical is launching the upgraded Xtract-All® Spine Universal Implant Removal System this September to the worldwide orthopedics market.
The Xtract-All® Spine is engineered to be a truly universal revision solution for spine surgeries. “The system includes over 130 drivers, with more than 40 implant-specific drivers,” states Nitin Chawla, Product Manager for Shukla Medical. Dedicated cases for both cervical and thoracolumbar revisions are available separately and can be purchased together for complete Xtract-All® Spine revision capabilities. There are 56 extractors included in the cervical case and 76 extractors in the TL case. Together, more than 40 proprietary implant configurations are covered in addition to standard hex, torx, & cruciform drivers.
Innovative helicopter sockets are available in the instrumentation case. The robust sockets allow difficult screw constructs to be removed while still attached to the spinal rod. After cutting the rod in-situ on either side of the assembled screw, the surgeon uses a helicopter socket to apply reverse torsion to the entire configuration until the screw backs out of the bone. The case also holds tools for several revision methods, from sophisticated ratcheting handles to a series of extensions, wrenches, a power adapter, rod grippers, & pliers.
Orthopedic surgeons should know that the Xtract-All Spine system is the MOST comprehensive spinal implant removal system on the market. Period. With a low barrier of entry to the spine implant market, there are new implants with new compatibility needs constantly emerging. Our goal was to create a system that could be continually updated, with open slots for additional removal tips, for those who have purchased the system and want to add compatibility for a specific proprietary system. The Xtract-All Spine is a living system that is constantly updated with additional removal tips as they become known to us.
