THE MAGEC SYSTEM: A NOVEL APPROACH TO EOS TREATMENT
NuVasive®, along with thought leaders in pediatric spinal deformity, recognized the need for an alternative form of EOS treatment – the MAGEC system. MAGEC may reduce the number of or eliminate the need for a series of invasive distractive surgeries, while still allowing patient growth throughout treatment.
Noninvasive Magnetic Growing Rods
The MAGEC System uses growing rods similary implanted as with traditional approaches, but with subsequent noninvasive distraction. Planned distractions take place in an office setting, typically at the cost of a regular office visit. These noninvasive distractions are generally quick and painless, and the child can return to activity immediately after the office visit (per the doctor’s guidance on acceptable activities). The doctor will decide when the patient has matured enough to remove the MAGEC rods.
