The PathFinder NXT System consists of polyaxial cannulated screws and rods and is intended to provide temporary stabilization following surgery to fuse the spine. A range of spinal rod lengths included with PathFinder NXT allows the surgeon to place polyaxial pedicle screws through an open or mini-open procedure.
The PathFinder NXT System is designed to aid in the surgical correction of several types of spinal conditions. This system is intended only to provide stabilization during the development of a solid fusion with autograft or allograft. These implants are intended to be removed after the development of a solid fusion mass.
Refer to the PathFinder NXT Minimally Invasive Pedicle Screw System Indications for Use for complete information on the PathFinder NXT System. The PathFinder NXT System only allows the placement of 5.5 mm titanium rods.
Refer to the PathFinder NXT Surgical Technique Manual for instructions on implantation.
