About this procedure

Instrumented Fracture Treatment is intended to be used to stabilise or fuse a fractured vertebral body or spinal segment of the thoracic and lumbar spine. The posterior stabilisation is the golden standard for instrumented fracture treatment. In some pathologies, an anterior approach may be considered which allows a partial or complete corpectomy and stabilisation using a vertebral body replacement device with either additional posterior stabilisation or a lateral plating.

Less or minimal invasive procedures are enhancing instrumented fractures while reducing the soft tissue damage. Especially in stabilisation procedures of A-type fractures for instance, an MIS technique is recommended. Additional augmentable techniques complement the fracture solution when required.

Controlled and predictable reconstruction of the spine and sagittal profile is key for long term clinical outcome.
