Participation in SIGNUS Medizintechnik roundtable

On the 14 of May, in Alzenau (Germany) SIGNUS Medizintechnik, which supports physicians and medical specialist personnel with innovative and safe solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders – for optimal patient mobility in everyday situations, hosted a roundtable for discuss on the relevance and application of the LSZ endocorrector (Laka-Sampiev-Zagorodniy) developed at the RUDN University Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics.

The LSZ system was developed for the surgical treatment of scoliotic deformity by plate endocorrectors, helping to individualize the approach in choosing an implant for a particular patient depending on the assigned treatment tasks, take into account the age, the volume of soft tissues in the field of surgical intervention the size and strength of the bony formations of the vertebrae at the site of fixation of the structure.

Endoscopic correctors LSZ allow to correct the deformation of the spine in three planes during the operation, reduce traumatism, reduce the time of the operation and keep the achieved result unchanged. Using plate endocorrectors, there is no need for intervention on the anterior spine (discotomy, discectomy, osteotomy of vertebral bodies, etc.), spondylodesis is not performed, although the LSZ system does not interfere with this. We analyzed 373 cases of operative treatment of idiopathic scoliosis according to this method. Among the patients of males there were 47 (12.60%), female - 326 (87.40%). The age of the patients ranged from 7 years to 44 years. The average age was 14.42 + 2.37.

Professor A.Laka and Professor M.T. Sampiev, as well as Dr. D.Kaizer (Germany), told about the application of the endocorrector of the spine in children in the treatment of scoliosis. Among the listeners were doctors from Germany, England, Belgium, Brazil and Spain. Then the Russian professors organized a master class on models with demonstration of the main stages of surgical intervention. Russian innovative development aroused great interest among many specialists. In their statements, foreign colleagues asked to implement this technology more quickly in their countries, create training centers, publish books and methodologies on this technology. In conclusion, Professor N.V. Zagorodniy expressed his hope for the great success of Russian developments in the field of scoliosis treatment in both children and adults, as well as fruitful cooperation with SIGNUS.
