Fortress™ Pedicular Fixation

The Fortress Pedicular Fixation System is part of the  innovative ACT MediaLIF™ procedure,  which provides surgeons  with a minimally invasive, anatomy-conserving posterior midline approach designed to reduce the incision length, dissection, and retraction requirements associated with traditional open posterior procedures. The procedure still allows for excellent visualization and access to the spine for decompression.   

Minimally Invasive

The Fortress system enables the use of a divergent cortical screw trajectory to minimize incision length, dissection, and retraction requirements. Instrument designs are minimized and/or integrated to meet the reduced exposure demands of the ACT MediaLIF procedure.

Maximum  Fixation

Bone specific thread design offers maximum fixation in both cortical and cancellous bone. 

Anatomy-Conserving Technology

Compact, low-profile design screw design and “T” feature rod design help reduce hardware encroachment on the adjacent level facets.
