Indications for Use

INDICATIONS

 

The DePuy Synthes XRL Device is a vertebral body replacement device intended for use in the thoracolumbar spine (T1-L5) to replace a collapsed, damaged or unstable vertebral body due to tumor or trauma (i.e., fracture). The DePuy Synthes Spine XRL Device is intended to be used with DePuy Synthes Spine supplemental internal fixation systems (e.g., USS, including MATRIX, PANGEA, and TSLP). The interior of DePuy Synthes Spine XRL can be packed with bone (i.e., autograft or allograft). The DePuy Synthes Spine XRL Device is designed to provide anterior spinal column support even in the absence of fusion for a prolonged period.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

 

  1. Use of the Synthes XRL Device is contraindicated when 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 orthopedic implant
  3. Conditions that may place excessive stresses on bone and implants, such as severe obesity or degenerative diseases, are relative contraindications. The decision whether to use these devices in patients with such conditions must be made by the physician, taking into account the risks versus the benefits to the patient
  4. 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, thereby placing undue stresses on the implant during bony healing. This could result in a higher risk of implant failure.
