The SYNFIX® Evolution Implant, a stand-alone anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) implant, employs the SYNFIX® Implant technology which has been used clinically in the SYNFIX® LR Implant since 2004.
The SYNFIX Implant technology is a zero-profile construct that includes four diverging locking screws. This design negates, in most circumstances, the need for additional fixation.
Features & Benefit
Feature: Posterior Bullet Nose
Benefit: Eases insertion into collapsed disc spaces
The SYNFIX Evolution Spacer System is a stand-alone anterior interbody fusion device indicated for use in patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels from L2 to S1. DDD is defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies. DDD patients may also have up to Grade I spondylolisthesis at the involved level(s). These patients should be skeletally mature and have had six months of non-operative treatment.
Additionally, the SYNFIX Evolution Spacer can be used in patients diagnosed with spinal deformities as an adjunct to fusion with DePuy Synthes Spine supplemental internal fixation products (e.g. pedicle screw system) for use in the lumbar spine in addition to integrated screws. These patients should be skeletally mature and have undergone six months of non-operative treatment prior to surgery.
These implants are used to facilitate fusion in the lumbar spine using autogenous bone and/or allogenic bone graft comprised of cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone graft.
