Indications

 

The VADER®one Pedicle System MIS and LightMore® Pedicle System 6.0 are intended to restore the integrity of the spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a limited time period in patients with advanced stage tumors involving the thoracic and lumbar spine in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion.
