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.
