This is the VIPER PRIME™ System, a novel technique for percutaneous pedicle screw placement that eliminates the need for guidewires, Jamshidi needles and pedicle preparation instruments. Featuring a new screw tip design and a stylet that is fully controlled by the screwdriver, only the VIPER PRIME System enables surgeons to target pedicles and insert screws in one single instrument pass.

Improved OR Efficiency

  • Reduction in pedicle prep and screw insertion job steps
  • More organized back table with fewer instruments required

Improved Procedure Flow

  • Eliminated guidewires and Jamshidi needles
  • Fewer instrument passes between the surgeon and the back table

Streamlined Instrument Set

  • Instrument Set footprint reduced from 6 trays to 2 trays*
  • Reduce waste and processing costs associated with steam autoclaved sets*

*As compared to the existing VIPER®System. See Adaptive SEA 103339245.
