Indications

For the correction and/or stabilisation of fractures, tumours, infections of the thoracolumbar spine and for posttraumatic deformities.

Contraindications

Not recommended for the use above T6; additional anterior defect filling is required in comminuted fractures.

Features and Benefits

  • The unique screw thread with dual core provides stable anchorage and immediate purchase between screw and bone. Cancellous bone is compressed between the thread for high pull-out resistance.
  • Free angular range of ± 18° allows for a controlled reduction.
  • Ligamental resistance becomes perceptible due to the independent distraction with the USS spreader forceps.
