The system is designed for a minimally invasive spinal fixation in lumbar fusion procedures, including those that treat degenerative disc disease, spinal tumors and trauma. The system is placed between the spinous processes away from the neural elements, including the spinal cord and spinal nerves, with the implant placed through a two to four centimeter incision.
Implant insertion and compression is achieved without multiple instruments and the implant allows for the maximum amount of bone graft material to optimize bony fixation between the spinous process.
