The Vertefix™ Pedicle Screw System is designed to create rigid bone union between vertebral segments in the lumbar and lower thoracic vertebrae, using a pedicle screw frame construction. The system is premised on the widely accepted posterior approach, and includes an optional cross-linking mechanism for enhanced stability. The pedicle screw is available either with a fixed head design or a poly-axial swivel design. Further refinements include a multi-axial screw with an extended u-shaped head for complications related to spondylolisthesis; a cross-linking device; and a wide variety of laminar hooks for the treatment of scoliosis. The Vertefix system has been in clinical use for nearly two decades, and is the culmination of long-standing partnerships and dialogue with leading specialists in the field of corrective spinal surgery.
