NUCLEOTOME SETS THE STANDARD FOR SAFETY AND EFFICACY IN PERCUTANEOUS DISCECTOMY
Nucleotome uses an automated shaver and continuous irrigation to remove disc nucleus. Surgical intruments are available for use through the working cannula, giving physicians the capability to reach the desired end point. The Nucleotome has a blunt distal tip and produces no heat, which translates to safety and patient comfort. Nuclear material is aspirated and collected for post-op examination.
The Nucleotome percutaneous discectomy kits are indicated for patients with contained herniated discs following failed conservative treatment. Numerous studies have proven the efficacy to be 75% and higher in properly selected patients.
There are minimal risks to patients. Complication rates are consistently less than 1%. Most percutaneous procedures are performed under local anesthesia. Patients can be discharged the same day and return to an active lifestyle quickly.
Nucleotome percutaneous kits allow physicians to safely extract enough nucleus to sufficiently decompress the disc. This is achieved through a small puncture without removing bone or disturbing the epidural space. With the Nucleotome, you can visualize and quantify the tissue removed.
