Successful at the Annual Meeting of the Deutsche Wirbelsäulengesellschaft (DWG) 2015 in Frankfurt, Germany
The icotec team enjoyed three intensive days at the DWG congress with many interesting encounters and discussions. The booth had substantial traffic and the future VADER® System with a cannulated and fenestrated pedicle screw (for cement augmentation) as well as the brandnew instruments set "Rosso" generated a lot of attention and very positive resonance.
A special highlight for icotec was the E-poster presentation of Dr. Markus Rühli regarding his twelve months experience with degenerative cases using icotec's Carbon/PEEK Pedicle System. The excellent clinical results were well received and stimulated vivid discussions.
At the same time, Thomas Nydegger presented a biomechanics E-poster on behalf of Prof. Schmölz, demonstrating the equivalent performance of Carbon/PEEK pedicle screws in terms of bony anchorage compared to titanium devices.
We thank all visitors for their interest and are looking foward to another welcome during the next congress!
