Features & Benefits


Features Benefits
USS Low Profile is a further development of the USS Universal Spine System. It is based on a modular concept with three modules:
  • USS basic instrument set
  • USS Low Profile pedicle screw set
  • USS Low Profile hook set
The implants provide the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of pathologies and variations in patient anatomy. USS Low Profile is fully compatible with the existing USS side opening pedicle screw system but provides the following enhancements:
  • Optimised pedicle screw with blunt tip and dual core thread design
  • Minimised profile height of implants
  • 12-Point Nut and hex fixation of screw and hook holders for easier handling
  • Colour coded screws and hooks for easy differentiation

Please refer to the surgical technique guide or package inserts if included for a complete list of indications, contraindications, precautions and warnings. For further information on DePuy Synthes Products, please contact your local DePuy Synthes Representative .
