About this product

Division: Spine
Category: Deformity Correction

The EXPEDIUM® VBD System design allows for an easy and quick attachment & release to the screws involved in the correction manoeuvre, without compromising the security surgeons require in such connection. The set also includes a selection of instruments that let the surgeon connect the derotation instrumentation at each vertebral level (Segmental Derotation), at multiple vertebral levels along the spine (En Bloc Derotation) or both ways.

Intended Use

Indications

The EXPEDIUM® Spine System is intended to provide immobilisation and stabilisation 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® Spine System is intended for non-cervical pedicle fixation and non-pedicle 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); tumour; pseudoarthrosis; and failed previous fusion in skeletally mature patients.

Features & Benefits

The EXPEDIUM® VBD System design allows for an easy and quick attachment & release to the screws involved in the correction manoeuvre, without compromising the security surgeons require in such connection. The set also includes a selection of instruments that let the surgeon connect the derotation instrumentation at each vertebral level (Segmental Derotation), at multiple vertebral levels along the spine (En Bloc Derotation) or both ways.

The input of each surgeon designer relative to their derotation technique, allowed DePuy Synthes Spine to develop a set that will accommodate the techniques mentioned above, as well as muscle sparing approaches involving DePuy Synthes Spine’s Minimally Invasive System, the VIPER® 2 System.

The EXPEDIUM® Family of Products includes a wide selection of deformity specific implants and instruments to support the DePuy Spine philosophy of patient driven, pathology specific solutions.

 

Features

  • All components are easy & quick to attach/remove.
  • The instrument design in connection with the TOP NOTCH™ System Instrument feature provides strong attachment to the screw head.
  • Set offers multiple options to link the derotation instruments:
  • Quick sticks can be connected along or across the spine with the Frames and/or Alignment Fork
  • Quick sticks can be connected to the new EXPEDIUM® System Flex Clip insert through Frames and/or Alignment Fork


All components are compatible with MIS Deformity Instrumentation

 

Benefits

  • INTUITIVE & SECURE - Easy to use instrumentation that provides complete control while pushing down or pulling up the spine for derotation manoeuvres.
  • VERSATILE - By allowing for multiple configurations (along and/or across the spine) the VBD Set adapts to each surgeon's preferred derotation technique (i.e., En Bloc, Segmental, both, etc.) as well as to the patient's anatomy (e.g., Thoracic curve vs. lumbar curve).
  • 100% COMPATIBLE - Surgeons can build hybrid constructs, combining Viper 3D with EXPEDIUM® ® VBD Instruments for a muscle sparing approach.
