About this product

Division: International
Category: Thoracolumbar Fixation

The EXPEDIUM VERSE® System was designed to enable surgeons to perform complex spinal surgeries in a time and cost efficient manner compared to traditional systems without compromising the safety profile and stability of the construct.

Examples of patient pathology types that the EXPEDIUM VERSE System could help treat include: adult deformity, complex degenerative, pediatric AIS (adolescent idiopathic scoliosis) and trauma.

 

Intended Use

The EXPEDIUM VERSE® System is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine.

The EXPEDIUM VERSE System is intended for noncervical pedicle fixation and nonpedicle fixation for the following indications: degenerative disc disease (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies); spondylolisthesis; trauma (i.e., fracture or dislocation); spinal stenosis; curvatures (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis); tumor, pseudoarthrosis; and failed previous fusion in skeletally mature patients.

When used in a posterior percutaneous approach with MIS instrumentation, the EXPEDIUM VERSE System is intended for noncervical pedicle fixation and nonpedicle fixation for the following indications: degenerative disc disease (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies); spondylolisthesis; trauma (i.e., fracture or dislocation); spinal stenosis; curvatures (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis); tumor, pseudoarthrosis; and failed previous fusion in skeletally mature patients.

When used for posterior noncervical pedicle screw fixation in pediatric patients, the EXPEDIUM VERSE System metallic implants are indicated as an adjunct to fusion to treat adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The EXPEDIUM VERSE System is intended to be used with autograft and/or allograft. Pediatric pedicle screw fixation is limited to a posterior approach.

Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
TOP NOTCH® Feature

The TOP NOTCH Feature helps various instruments easily connect to the implant and implifies intraoperative maneuvers.

Head Drag

A drag mechanism enables the implant head to retain alignment, simplifying rod capture.
Hypermobile Head with a Favored Angle
 
The favored angle provides up to 84° of angulation,* providing the benefits of a side loading implant with the ease of use of a top tightening system.
X25 Drive Feature
 
For the first time in an EXPEDIUM® 5.5 System, the EXPEDIUM VERSE® System provides an X25 Drive Feature which allows for 43%** more torque to be delivered compared to the T20 Drive Feature provided in the EXPEDIUM 5.5 System.
Fully Threaded Dual Lead Shank
 
The double lead thread, self tapping and self centering shank is designed to provide faster screw insertion, enhanced bone purchase, and help ensure accurate placement within the pedicle.

Fenestrated Cortical Fix Polyaxial screw

Double-lead thread for cancellous bone and quad-lead cortical thread in the proximal 15mm of screw shank.
Allowing:

  • Double number of contact points within the cortical wall of the pedicle, improving screw fixation and increasing the cross-sectional area of the proximal portion of the implant shank
  • Increased resistance to axial pull-out forces (compared to standard EXPEDIUM and VIPER screws) fenestrations for screws 45mm and longer
  • 3 fenestrations for screws 40mm and shorter

Allowing:

  • Injection of bone cement through the screw for additional fixation.

The fenestrations are at the distal part of the shank to reduce potential cement retropulsion

 

Extended Tabs with Loading Zone

Powerful integrated reduction with an alignment feature
The black line on the tab indicates the side of the Favored Angle

Correction Key

The Correction Key delivers independent locking of the Polyaxial head and rod, providing the benefit of a Polyaxial screw with the correction control of a monoaxial screw.

Unitized Set Screw

One step locking of the polyaxial head and rod can be achieved with the Unitized Set Screw when independent locking is not required.
