About Vitality®+ Spinal Fixation System

The Vitality®+ Spinal Fixation System is a thoracolumbar and sacroiliac fixation system designed to aid in the surgical correction of several types of spinal conditions. The system consists of Vitality+ POWER for simple, controlled pedicle preparation and pedicle screw insertion; Vitality+ PSO for optimal pedicle subtraction osteotomy and vertebral column resection procedures; and Vitality+ HOOKS with an extensive array of additional fixation options. These devices are indicated as an adjunct to fusion for degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, deformities or curvatures, tumor, stenosis, pseudo-arthrosis, and failed previous fusions.

For degenerative thoracolumbar procedures, Vitality®+ is available in a two-kit pedicle screw instrument configuration. This system is intended for the treatment of severe spondylolisthesis of the L5-S1 vertebra in skeletally mature patients receiving fusion by autogenous bone graft and having implants attached to the lumbosacral spine and/or ilium with a removal of the implant after attainment of a solid fusion.

About Vital™ Spinal Fixation System

The Vital™ Spinal Fixation System is a subsystem of the Vitality®+ Spinal Fixation System. The minimized two-kit configuration includes all pertinent instruments required for degenerative spine surgeries with an easy-to-follow color-coded tray layout. The upgraded Vital™ screws incorporates T27 hexalobe drive feature, one of the largest drive standards in the industry, designed to provide 30% more strength than the T25 hexalobe. The Vital™ Spinal Fixation System's dual lead screws require fewer revolutions for insertion, as they can be inserted twice as fast as comparable single lead screws, without sacrificing pull-out strength.

510(k) Clearance for Pedicle Preparation and Screw Insertion Under Power

The Launch of Vitality+ POWER is followed by Zimmer Biomet's 510(k) clearance for pedicle preparation and screw insertion under power in September 2017. The Department of Health & Human Services approved to legally market the Vitality®+ Spinal Fixation System and Vitality®+ Power Instrument System, subject to the general controls provisions of the Act.

The Vitality®+ Power Instrument System includes instrumentation to be used with power for the preparation of the pedicle and ilium and insertion of Vitality®+ Spinal Fixation System screws.
