“The main focus of DIPLOMAT is the optimized balance between clinical performance and user-friendliness,” says SIGNUS Managing Director, Uwe Siedler. The system combines maximal clinical efficiency with all the important properties required for optimal patient treatment.
DIPLOMAT impresses users not only with its high level of safety but also with its ease of handling during surgery. Because all the pedicle screws are cannulated, as well as being fenestrated from a diameter of 5.5 millimeters, the surgeon can perform augmentation at any time, allowing intraoperative issues to be more easily resolved. The comfortable screw-cannula diameter of 1.9 millimeters also allows the use of stronger guide wires, which noticeably stabilizes the insertion of the pedicle screw during MIS procedures. The DIPLOMAT pedicle screws have a self-tapping double thread that provides the best possible fixation and perfect anchoring in the bone. The high thread pitch enables faster insertion which considerably shortens surgery time.
