Valencia Pedicle Screw System

Surgical Technique Guide

Product Overview

The Altus Spine Valencia Pedicle Screw System’s low torque design fully locks in at 65 in-lbs (7.3 N-m), which is nearly half of the torque required by most competitive designs. The low torque design also fosters high tactical feedback and reduces anatomical loads during final construct tightening.Additionally, the unique screw thread form incorporates a progressive, multi-diameter design intended to maintain purchase with changes in screw position.
