Surgical Treatment – PRECICE® Internal Lengthening Device

Surgical Treatment – PRECICE® Internal Lengthening Device 2017-10-18T20:39:40+00:00

The PRECICE internal lengthening process, like external fixation, works on the principle of bone regeneration. However, new technology makes bone lengthening with a telescopic device inside the bone’s marrow cavity possible, eliminating the need for an external fixation apparatus.

The PRECICE Intramedullary Limb Lengthening System is a novel adjustable state-of-the-art device.

The key to the NuVasive® platform technology is the magnetic interaction between the PRECICE intramedullary (IM) device and remote control.

The proprietary technology includes a complex internal gear system remotely activated and controlled by permanent magnets. This advancement in limb lengthening allows for a precision controlled distraction phase with the ability to non-invasively customize treatment.

The External Remote Control (ERC) is a portable, handheld unit that precisely lengthens or shortens the IM device through the touch of a button. The ERC is fully customizable to each patient based on their distraction needs. The ERC is designed to be used in a clinic setting or the comfort of the patient’s home.
