IMPLANT

CONTINUOUS PRECISION ANGULATION FOR PATIENT ENDPLATE MATCHING

SELF-ADJUSTING MULTI-AXIAL END CAP

Up to 38° of total angulation with optional modular end caps

Distributed Surface Contact

Prevents point loading and reduces the risk of subsidence

INSERTER

Lean, Strong, and Agile

For simplified delivery, the inserter is designed to fit the approach.

Illustration of the T2 Stratosphere inserter approaches on a white background. Posterior, lateral/oblique, and anterior cervical approaches are labeled.

POSTERIOR APPROACHES

Two inserter options to get the right angle to the defect

LATERAL/OBLIQUE APPROACH

Straight inserter designed with extra length to accommodate the patient depth

ANTERIOR CERVICAL APPROACH

Small 13 mm inserter for implant balance and control    

Multi-functional,  All-in-one  Instrument

The T2 Stratosphere uses one instrument to insert, expand, and lock the implant. (Final lock is with the driver through the inserter.)

Low Profile

The low profile of the T2 Stratosphere inserter enables visualization of anatomy and access around the spinal cord and nerve roots.

 

MEASURE, VISUALIZE, AND DELIVER THE IMPLANT

Rely on SynergyCorpectomy with StealthStation navigation and O-Arm imaging to measure, visualize, and deliver the implant.

Targeted Bone Removal and Decompression

Targeted bone removal and decompression is enabled by the navigated Stealth Midas™ drill and navigated posterior and lateral disc prep instruments.

One Step Implant Selection Using StealthStation Template Measuring

Simple implant footprint and height sizing utilizing navigated templates allows you to quickly measure the defect.

3D Visualization in All Planes

Use the navigated inserters to precisely place the implant in the defect.

T2 STRATOSPHERE EXPANDABLE CORPECTOMY SYSTEM

INDICATIONS

CERVICAL (C2-C7) - 13MM CENTERPIECES ONLY

The T2 Stratosphere™ Expandable Corpectomy System is used in skeletally mature patients to replace a collapsed, damaged, or unstable vertebral body caused by tumor, trauma (i.e. fracture), or osteomyelitis, or for reconstruction following corpectomy performed to achieve decompression of the spinal cord and neural tissues in cervical degenerative disorders. The T2 Stratosphere™ System is also intended for patients with advanced stage tumors in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion, with bone graft used at the surgeon’s discretion. The device is intended to be used with supplemental fixation and when used at more than two levels supplemental fixation should include posterior fixation. The T2 Stratosphere™ System is intended for use with autograft or allogenic bone graft comprised of cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone graft as an adjunct to fusion.

THORACOLUMBAR (T1-L5) - ALL IMPLANTS

The T2 Stratosphere™ Expandable Corpectomy System is used in skeletally mature patients to replace a collapsed, damaged, or unstable vertebral body due to tumor or trauma (i.e. fracture). The T2 Stratosphere™ System is also intended for patients with advanced stage tumors in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion, with bone graft used at the surgeon’s discretion. The device is to be used with supplemental fixation. The T2 Stratosphere™ System is intended for use with autograft or allograft as an adjunct to fusion.

**Note: T2 Stratosphere Navigation is for the Thoracolumbar Spine only.

RISKS 

A successful result is not always achieved in every surgical case. Potential risks associated with the device include, but are not limited to:

  • Subsidence, implant migration, or vertebral body fracture
  • Tissue damage, nerve damage, or loss of neurological function
  • Implant loosening, breakage, fracture, or debris
  • Postoperative change in spinal curvature, loss of correction, height, and/or reduction
  • Site complications including pain, infection, or wound healing problems

GRAFTON DBM DBF

INDICATIONS

Grafton DBM DBF can be used in orthopedic or reconstructive bone grafting procedures. The product can also be used in bone grafting procedures in combination with autologous bone or other forms of allograft bone, or alone as a bone graft.

Note: T2 Stratosphere Navigation is for the Thoracolumbar Spine only.

RISKS

The presence of infection at the transplantation site is a contraindication for the use of this allograft. This allograft may contain trace amounts of antibiotics (gentamicin), surfactant, and other processing solutions. Caution should be exercised if the patient is allergic to these antibiotics or chemicals.
