Lumbar interbody fusion with VERTEBRIS

The VERTEBRIS stenosis instrument set is specially designed for advanced indications in full-endoscopic spine surgery. This system expands the full-endoscopic surgical range to many more indications in the lumbar spine beyond decompressions.

In the case of spinal fusion, the VERTEBRIS stenosis set combines effective discectomy, precise laminectomy and foraminotomy with the key benefits of full-endoscopic spine surgery.  

It also enables the safe placement of an interbody fusion device, by optimal preparation of all anatomical structures and clear visualization.

While exhibiting a small outer diameter, the working channel of 5.5mm allows comparably large tools to reach the target area and resect osseous structures fast and effectively. With the small outer diameter, this advanced surgery stays truly minimally invasively. 

New line of working instruments for full-endoscopic fusion procedure

These state-of-the-art instruments are designed to provide surgeons with the precision and speed they need to achieve optimal results in endplate preparation. Each instrument is specifically engineered for disc and bone resection under endoscopic visualization.


Benefits of using the new line of working instruments for endoscopic procedures:

  • Precise and fast endplate preparation
  • Effective disc and bone resection
  • All time visual control
  • Ergonomic and easy to use

New working sleeves

New additional working sleeves give surgeons the flexibility to use different implants for endoscopic fusion procedures. The double-nose-tip design guarantees a unique fixation of the sleeve at the disc level, allowing for fast and stable implantation of a cage.

TipControl Burr

A key benefit of endoscopic surgical procedures for the spinal column is that the angled direction of view enables users to "look around corners" and this permits greater visualization over a larger area during an operation. It is absolutely crucial that the working instruments (and abrading instruments) can be adjusted and angled to the match the field of view in order to perform efficient interventions during endoscopic procedures.

Precise Laminectomy and Foraminotomy

The optimized and powerful cutting performance of all VERTEBRIS burrs enables surgeons to perform all kind of bone resection very precisely and efficiently.

The unique TipControl articulating burr allows a large intraoperative resection radius under permanent endoscopic view due to its distally bendable burr tip.

In full-endoscopic procedure, a discectomy can be performed under permanent visual control.

For the removal of the disc material the VERTEBRIS set offers a solid range of rigid and deflectable forceps and punches for a wide intradiscal range of motion. 

The motor controlled TipControl Nucleus Resector is a unique instrument which perfectly fulfills the demand of effective disc removal. Nucleus material can be removed with this deflectable instrument under endoscopic view and control and can immediately be aspirated from the surgical field.

Visual Inspection

Visual endoscopic control of sufficient decompression of all neural structures is excellently feasible with high-resolution endoscopic imaging.

To guarantee the correct position of an interbody fusion device, visual control is essential. An endoscope gives surgeons the possibility of a clear inspection following implantation.
