Product Description

A Better Angle on MIS
The next generation in minimally invasive spine surgery, the ProView MAP System introduces extraordinary benefits for both patient and surgeon. With an intuitive, step-by-step procedure, the ProView MAP System offers procedural simplicity and a versatile approach for straightforward implant delivery.

Putting Surgeons First
The benefits of minimally-invasive surgery make it the preferred surgical choice for minimally-invasive minded surgeons. The unique characteristics of the ProView MAP System are indicative of the paradigm shift in the way surgery is being performed today: starting small but thinking big.

Minimal Approach With Maximum Impact
The ProView MAP System consists of three elements: straight and beveled tubular retractors in multiple lengths, a unique 3-blade independently-controlled expandable retractor and an easy-handling percutaneous screw delivery system.

Tubular Retractors System
The Tubular Retractors System uses a step-by-step procedure to dilate the tissue concentrically for optimal viewing. A full complement of tubular retractor diameters and lengths are available to accommodate patient anatomies and surgeon needs. The inserter handle locks to the tubular retractor for complete control during insertion. The flexible arm provides variable positions, with rigidity that adjusts with a single knob. The arm can even be locked to the retractor for optimal security.

Expandable Retractor System
The Expandable Retractor System enables dilating of muscle and tissue without enlarging incision. Individually controlled arms and independent angulating blades allow the surgeon to focus on isolated areas with optimal flexibility and visual access. Top loading blades, available in multiple lengths, allow for blade changes without the need to remove the retractor. Additional shims for blade extension, reusable and disposable fiber optic lighting, and a bilateral fitting make the system exceptionally versatile.

Indication
The ProView MAP System consists of surgical instruments intended to aid the surgeon’s visualization of the surgical area and allow for performance of spinal procedures such as herniated disc repair, visualization of the circumferential decompression of the nerve roots, aiding in the search and removal of nucleus material, spinal fusion, or insertion of spinal implants.
