Like the Classic PediGuard, the Curved PediGuard takes the place of the standard gearshift and facilitates pilot hole preparation for accurate screw placement. PediGuard’s bipolar tip can alert the surgeon prior to a breach by accurately analyzing the electrical conductivity of the surrounding tissues. The surgeon is informed in real time by changes in pitch and cadence of audio feedback and a flashing LED light.
The Curved PediGuard offers the following benefits:
- A tapered tip to ease penetration through the pedicle and removal from the pedicle when drilling is complete.
- A sense of directionality. As surgeons become comfortable with the direction of the curve, we anticipate enhanced awareness of the location of a possible breach for proper redirection.
- Surgeons who prefer a curved gearshift will appreciate the tactile feel of the Curved PediGuard.
