Vectre Facet Fusion System: Intuitive Fixation
The TranS1® Vectre™ System is a multi-component system including a titanium alloy implantable device and instrumentation.
The Vectre™ Facet Fusion System offers a cannulated facet screw inserted over a guidewire to reduce muscle and tissue trauma. The facet screw, combined with a washer, provides solid, tactile feedback when fully seating the screw.
The Vectre™ System is designed to offer a safe, reproducible posterior fixation option that includes:
- A threaded working cannula
- Implant retention on screw driver
- Bone graft ability to the facet
Vectre™ INDICATIONS: The TranS1® Vectre™ Facet Screws are to supplement legally marketed anterior fusion products in order to create an anterior/posterior fixation construct as an aid to fusion. The facet screws may be implanted using a transfacetpedicular technique. The screws are inserted bilaterally through the superior side of the facet, across the facet joint at a single level (usually) and into the pedicle. Bone graft must be used. The system is indicated for the posterior surgical treatment at L3-S1 (inclusive) spinal levels for the following: Pseudarthrosis or failed previous fusions which are symptomatic; Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) as defined by back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies and/or degenerative disease of the facets with instability.
