Guaranteed for 50 years.METRx ® tubular system for spinal surgery is a less invasive version of traditional spine surgery in which tubular retractor is applied by using microsurgical techniques to achieve nerve and spinal cord decompression and spine stability. For the first time invasive surgeries like microdiscectomy, laminotomy, foraminotomy and inner decompression of the spinal cord can be performed in a less invasive way and without the use of general anesthesia. The METRX system combines the reliability of conventional microsurgical methods with the advantages of a minimally invasive technique. The advantage of METRX system over traditional microsurgical methods is that now the neurosurgeon can perform spine surgery by using segmental dilators and tubular retractors and apply a technique that minimizes the amount of damage to muscle tissue which is the main factor of spine stability.
