Halo device – a special device for rigid external fixation of the cervical spine. The device provides reliable stabilization, makes it possible to eliminate dislocations of the cervical spine in all planes. This preserves the mobility of the patient, who can serve himself without assistance. The design is usually used for traumatic injuries of the cervical vertebrae, however, its use is also possible in some diseases (tumors, osteomyelitis, progressive post-traumatic deformities and rheumatoid lesions of the cervical vertebrae, etc.).
The device is intended for external multiplanar reposition, additional correction and fixation of the cervical spine in one-stage and two-stage surgical treatment of its injuries.
In the treatment of pediatric scoliosis.
Regardless of the modification, this device for external fixation combines the advantages of conservative and surgical treatment.
In comparison with standard orthoses, the halo device is the most effective way to limit movements in the cervical spine and maintain the achieved correction of existing deformations.
– Minimally invasive and the possibility of gradual correction of deformation.
– Reliable fixation and safety of application.
– The strength of the fixation of the spine, which is achieved, provides the possibility of early activation of patients in the postoperative period.
– The number of supporting structures in the standard configuration of the halo apparatus is sufficient to ensure rigid immobilization in traumatic deformations.
– Presence of standard sizes of separate parts of the device allow to pick up system individually taking into account the size of the patient.
