SLIDER is an unique implant consisting of two independent sliding parts equiped with „shark teeth”. This construction enables the correction of spondylolisthesis due to DRrB Method (Distraction by rotation, Reposition & Blockage). All benefits are being realized one after the other using single cage inserter (3in1). SLIDER provides a very firm and stable fixation. It can be implanted form anterior & posterior approach. Additional transpedicular fixation is recommended.
Due to available international reports around 5% of all spinal fusion surgeries are related to spondylolisthesis. The correction of this condition was mainly related to so called „spondylo-screws”, which shall help restore and maintain the curvature of the spine. However, problems related to pull-out and breakage of screws were reported in many clinical reports.
acceleration of bone ingrowth& overgrowth of implant;
quick patient recovery;
Restoration of natural spine geometry;
Reduction of invasiveness;
FEATURES & BENEFITS
3in1 DrRB method Distraction by rotation Reposition and Blockage in one insertion;
Correction of spondylolisthesis based on single cage (not screws!):
time saving procedure;
3 shapes to match most of intervertebral conditions;
for Spondylo- / Retro – listhesis;
Posterior / Anterior approach;
Uniquely shaped “shark teeth” for:
supreme primary stability;
enlargement of load bearing surfaces;
prevention against migration & expulsion;
Surgical technique – main steps
Well-chosen stabilizing implant is designed to achieve a biomechanical function only in those cases, where, after suitable surgical preparation, it is followed by osseous concrescence and interception of this functions through the musculosceletal system. The range of sizes enables to deal with every anatomical variation and allows restoration of the natural-balanced height of the intervertebral space as well as the restoration or maintenance of adequate lumbar lordosis. Contraindications for use are listed in the „General Instruction for Use of Spinal System DERO”. The implantation procedure of stabilizer is reserved for spine surgery specialists trained in the use of the specific instrumentation conceived for this implant. This main procedure steps are shown for illustrative purposes only. The technique actually employed in each case will always depend upon the medical judgment of the surgeon exercised before and during surgery as to the best mode of treatment for each patient. Presented instrumentation should be used solely with ”General Instruction for Use of Spinal System DERO”. Please see the IFU for the complete list of indications, warnings, precautions and other medical information.
