The Minuteman is a minimally invasive, percutaneously placed interlaminar fusion device. It is designed for attachment to the spinous process through its spiked wing plates and its spiked end cap plate, and it is intended for use with bone graft fusion material placed within the device.
The Minuteman’s stabilization and fusion of the spinous process is designed to treat patients afflicted with degenartive disc disease, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis. The unique threaded design of the Minuteman allows it to be easily placed under fluoroscopy into the lumbar spina (L1-L5) through a 2.5 cm lateral incision. The Minuteman implant is delivered sterile and individually packed for improved safety.
