C-VBR is a vertebral body replacement device indicated for use in the cervical spine (spanning C2-T1 vertebral bodies) in skeletally mature patients to replace a diseased or damaged vertebral body caused by tumor, fracture, or osteomyelitis, or for reconstruction following corpectomy performed to achieve decompression of the spinal cord and neural tissues in cervical degenerative disorders. The C-VBR System is intended to be used with supplemental fixation cleared by the FDA for use in the cervical spine.
These implants are intended for use with autograft or allogenic bone graft comprising cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone graft, as an adjunct to fusion. The C-VBR System is also intended to restore the integrity of the spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a limited time period in patients with advanced stage tumors involving the cervical spine in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion, with bone graft used at the surgeon’s discretion.
The Cardinal Spine STGC is a generally rectangular vertebral body replacement (VBR) device having a trapezoidal cross section and is provided in various heights to meet the needs of reconstructive spinal surgeons.
