Indications for Use

INDICATIONS

 

The DePuy Synthes ANTEGRA & ANTEGRA-T Plate Systems are indicated for use via the lateral or anterolateral surgical approach above the bifurcation of the great vessels or via the anterior surgical approach, below the bifurcation of the great vessels as an adjunct to fusion. This system is indicated in the treatment of lumbar and lumbosacral (L1-S1) spine instability as a result of fracture (including dislocation and subluxation), tumor, degenerative disc disease (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient history and radiographic studies), pseudoarthrosis, spondylolysis, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, lordotic deformities of the spine, spinal stenosis, or a failed previous spine surgery.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

 

Use of the DePuy Synthes ANTEGRA & ANTEGRA-T Plate Systems is contraindicated when:

 

  1. There is active systemic infection, infection localized to the site of the proposed implantation, or when the patient has demonstrated allergy or foreign body sensitivity to any of the implant materials.
  2. Severe osteoporosis may prevent adequate fixation and thus preclude the use of this or any other orthopaedic implant.
  3. Metastatic tumors are present in the adjacent vertebral bodies.
  4. Conditions that may place excessive stresses on bone and implants, such as severe obesity or degenerative disease are relative contraindications. The decision whether to use these devices in such conditions must be made by the physician taking into account the risks versus the benefits to the patient.

Use of these implants is relatively contraindicated in patients whose activity, mental capacity, mental illness, alcoholism, drug abuse, occupation, or lifestyle may interfere with their ability to follow postoperative restrictions and who may place undue stresses on the implant during bony healing and may be at a higher risk of implant failure.

 

WARNINGS

 

These devices are not approved for screw attachment or fixation to the posterior elements (pedicles) of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine.
