Spinal Simplicity’s Minuteman® is an interspinous-interlaminar fusion device. It is intended for the stabilization and fusion of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine. The device is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral fixation plates. The Minuteman® is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device.
The Minuteman® provides immobilization, stabilization, and fusion 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® G5 Fusion Plate is a posterior, non-pedicle fusion device, intended for use at a single interspace in the non-cervical spine (T1-S1). It is intended for plate fixation/attachment to spinous processes for the purpose of achieving instrumented posterior arthrodesis (i.e., fusion) in the following conditions:
- Lumbar Spinal Stenosis;
- Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies); and/or
The Minuteman® G5 Fusion Plate is intended for use with bone graft material. The device may be implanted via a lateral transverse approach (L1-S1) or a posterior approach (T1-S1).
