Spinal Simplicity aims to provide surgeons with innovative, minimally invasive, simple solutions to treat complex spinal disorders.
The Minuteman® G3 is a minimally invasive, interspinous-interlaminar fusion device intended for the temporary fixation of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine while awaiting bony fusion to occur. It is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral locking plates, and it is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device. The Minuteman® G3 provides immobilization and stabilization of the spinal segments. The core threaded post allows for optimal placement and a wide range of sizes allows for enhanced anatomical fit. The Minuteman® G3 is delivered sterile and individually packed. *See instructions for full prescribing information
Features and Benefits
- Minimally invasive alternative to traditional pedicle screws and other spinous process plates
- Lateral MIS approach eliminates the lateral dissection of the healthy tissue (neural monitoring is not required)
- Safer zone Lateral MIS approach is above the facet joints, avoiding the neural and vascular structures
- Ligament preservation of the supraspinous ligament helps maintain stabilization of the spine
- 5 anatomical sizes (8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, and 16mm) to accommodate variations in patient anatomy
- Threaded body allows the implant to thread between the spinous processes in a controlled fashion
- Large graft window allows easy placement of bone graft material to facilitate a posterior fusion
- Reversible Auto-Lock technology enables the device to variably tighten without compromising fixation
- Sterile packed to promote patient safety and compliance at hospitals
- Degenerative disc disease (DDD) (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history
and radiographic studies)
- Trauma (i.e., fracture or dislocation); and/or
The Minuteman® G3 is intended for use with bone graft material and is not intended for stand-alone use.
The device may be implanted via an MIS Posterior (T1-S1) or MIS Lateral (L1-S1) approach.
