The Minuteman® is a minimally invasive, interspinous-interlaminar fusion device intended for the fixation and stabilization of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine while awaiting bony fusion to occur. The Minuteman® is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral locking plates, and it is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device. It provides immobilization and stabilization 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® is delivered sterile and individually packed.

Features & Benefits

Full Control Over Implant Wings

______

Allows the user to deploy and retract the wings intraoperatively

Single Piece Implant Body

______

Minimizes device profile without the need to remove a portion of the threaded body

60° Wing Angle

______

Designed to provide improved biomechanical stability in response to axial rotation and lateral bending loading

Lower Profile Compared to Minuteman® G3-R

______

Allows the implants to be inserted down a smaller diameter sleeve from the MIS Lateral approach

Hydroxyapatite Coated Fixation Hex Nut
______

A substance that helps promote bone on-growth and fusion. Maximizes bone-implant contact area to promote stability and fusion.

Safer Zone
______

Lateral MIS approach is above the facet joints, avoiding the neural and vascular structures

Minimally Invasive
______

Alternative to traditional pedicle screws and other spinous process plates

Lateral MIS Approach
______

Eliminates the dissection of the healthy tissue (neural monitoring is not required)

Ligament Preservation
______

Of the supraspinous ligament helps maintain stabilization of the spine

Large Graft Window
______

Allows easy placement of bone graft material to facilitate a posterior fusion

Threaded Body
______

Allows the implant to thread between the spinous processes in a controlled fashion

5 Anatomical Sizes
______

(8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, and 16mm) to accommodate variations in patient anatomy

Sterile Packed
______

Promotes patient safety and compliance at hospitals

MR Conditional
______

The Minuteman G5 implant is considered MR Conditional. A patient may be safely scanned under very specific conditions, which may be found by visiting the MRI Safety.

Minuteman® Lateral Fusion

Indications for Use

The Minuteman® MIS Fusion Plate is a posterior, non-pedicle supplemental fixation device, intended for use at a single level in the non-cervical spine (T1-S1). It is intended for use with bone graft material and is not intended for stand-alone use. The Minuteman® MIS Fusion Plate may be implanted via a minimally invasive lateral (L1-S1) approach. It is intended for plate fixation/attachment to spinous processes for the purpose of achieving supplemental fusion in the following conditions: Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Spondylolisthesis, Trauma, and Tumor.
