The Aspen System is a complete portfolio of spinous process fixation devices that offers a less invasive alternative to pedicle screws and facilitates interbody and posterior fusions.
The Aspen MIS Fusion System consists of a family of spinous process fixation devices designed for rigid, posterior fixation to promote fusion from T1 to S1.
A randomized, controlled, multi-center clinical trial showed that the Aspen System could be a significantly faster and less invasive alternative to pedicle screw fixation in support of interbody fusion1.
Biomechanical testing has demonstrated comparable stability of the Aspen System to pedicle screw fixation in support of both TLIF and ALIF3,4.
Zimmer Biomet Spine’s comprehensive thoracolumbar products are engineered to treat spinal deformities, degenerative, and complex cases with clinical effectiveness, always with a commitment to patient safety.
