On January 24/25th approximately 100 participants attended the 31st International Course for Percutaneous Endoscopic Spinal Surgery and Complementary Minimal Invasive Techniques”, in the Bethanien Hospital, Zurich.

During the 70 lectures, held by spine specialists from all over the world, many visitors also have been interested in the exhibition area.

For the first time SpineSave presented their new SpineShape System IV to an international audience. Stefan Freudiger and team informed about this new system that works with connecting rods in three different stiffness instead of only one compared to previous systems.


The shown film
demonstrated impressively the considerable number of in-vitro-tests and fatigue tests (1 Mio – 10 Mio cycles) reflecting the longevity of the new system. The VaristabTM additionally offers a dynamic connection for the protection of the adjacent segment.


In his speech, Stefan Freudiger explained the advantages of System IV directly to the experts. More information about the speech may be found directly under: http://www.spinesave.com/contact/

In summary a very successful symposium presentation of SpineShape System IV with interesting contacts worldwide.
