Scope of Application

Scope of Application

The VADER® Pedicle System, VADER®one Pedicle System MIS and the 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, prior to oncological treatment, is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion.

VADER® Pedicle System only: When used in conjunction with G21 V-Fast or V-Steady Bone Cement and PicoMix™ V and/or V-HP Gun with the icotec Cement Cannula for mixing and injection of bone cements, the fenestrated VADER® pedicle screws 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, prior to oncological treatment, is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion. The fenestrated VADER® pedicle screws 6.0 augmented with G21 V-Fast or V-Steady Bone Cement are limited to the use at spinal levels where the structural integrity of the spine is not severely compromised.

The VADER®one Pedicle System MIS is indicated to provide the surgeon with a minimally invasive approach for posterior spinal surgery.

The LightMore® Pedicle System 6.0 is indicated to provide the surgeon with an open approach for posterior spinal surgery.

The VADER® Pedicle System is indicated to provide the surgeon with a minimally invasive and open approach for posterior spinal surgery.
