Biedermann Motech, the developer of the world’s first polyaxial pedicle screw (MOSS System) and pioneer in the spinal market for more than 30 years, announced today the launch of the iMAS 360™ procedure at the North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting in Los Angeles, September 26-28, 2018.

The iMAS 360 is a mini-open, microsurgical 360 fusion procedure for the lumbar spine developed by spinal surgeon Robert L. Masson, M.D., Orlando. It incorporates many of the traditional fusion techniques combined with advanced implants and instruments to create a less invasive muscle sparing procedural solution. The key takeaway of the iMAS 360 is the ability to treat any level of the lumbar spine between L2 and S1 with one small posterior midline skin incision.

“iMAS 360 is a lumbar fusion technique that is tissue sparing, has an optimized surgical field, allows for bilateral direct decompression and restoration of lordosis. The MOSS 100™ modular pedicle screw system and the TELIX K™ steerable interbody system have been specifically designed with the iMAS 360 procedure in mind,” says Ray Oktavec, Biedermann Motech’s Director of US Sales & Marketing, Spine.

Robert L. Masson, M.D., said, “The iMAS 360 evolved over time to optimize accuracy, strategy, sequence and ultimately systems. It is an advanced procedural solution integrating technologically sophisticated equipment and techniques focusing on a specific 3D reconstructive plan…”

There will be presentations for surgeons discussing the clinical value of the iMAS 360 procedure at the Biedermann Motech booth # 2435 all three days during NASS with Robert L. Masson, M.D., Tim Keenen, M.D., Syed Aftab, FRCS, and PD Dr. med. Ali Reza Fathi.
