INDICATIONS AND USAGE
CAUTION: Federal (USA) Law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician (or properly licensed practitioner) who has appropriate training or experience.
The CONCORDE™, CONCORDE Bullet, CONCORDE Curve, COUGAR®, DEVEX®, and LEOPARD® Systems are indicated for use as intervertebral body fusion devices in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease (defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient history and radiographic studies) at one or two contiguous levels of the lumbar spine (L2-S1). Patients should have six months of non-operative treatment prior to surgery. These implants are used to facilitate fusion in the lumbar spine and are placed via either a PLIF (CONCORDE, CONCORDE Bullet), TLIF (CONCORDE, CONCORDE Bullet, CONCORDE Curve, DEVEX, LEOPARD Systems) or anterior (COUGAR Systems) approach using autogenous bone. When used as interbody fusion devices these implants are intended for use with DePuy Spine supplemental internal fixation products.
