The mont blanc implants consist of various forms and sizes of screws, locking screws, rods, hooks and connectors.
The mont blanc implants can be combined for creating a posterior spinal implant system.
They are used with dedicated instruments which allow preparation of the site, insertion of implants and removal.
The mont blanc implants are supplied for single use.
Implants material: titanium alloy (ISO 5832-3) or CoCrMo alloy (ISO 5832-12).
Instruments material: stainless steel, titanium, silicone, polyphenyl sulfone, nitinol, CoCrMo alloy and polypropylene.
The mont blanc system is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral/iliac spine.
This mont blanc system is intended for posterior noncervical pedicle fixation and non-pedicle fixation (from T1 to S1) for the following indications in skeletally mature patients:
- degenerative disc disease (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies);
- trauma (i.e., fracture or dislocation);
- spinal stenosis;
- deformities (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis);
- spinal tumor;
- pseudoarthrosis; and
- failed previous fusion.
The mont blanc system is intended to be used with autograft and/or allograft.
When used in adolescent patients, the mont blanc system is indicated as an adjunct to fusion to treat idiopathic scoliosis.
