Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone.

Spinal fusion is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused by abnormal movement of the vertebrae through immobilization. Supplemental bone tissue, either autograft or allograft, is used for promoting bone tissue growth. Fusion is accomplished by using either an instrumented or non-instrumented surgical approach.

Instrumented fusions incorporate fixation devices to secure and stabilize the fusion site and interbody devices to fill the intervertebral disc space as well as enhance and promote fusion. Non-instrumented fusions use bone tissue to promote growth but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures. Interbody device markets, including those used in the thoracolumbar region of the spine, are discussed in a subsequent chapter. All procedures and markets in this analysis are instrumented fusions because they involve the implantation of plates, screws, rods, wiring or cable fixation devices.

Thoracolumbar spinal fusions and their associated fixation implants represent the second-largest segment of the European spinal implant market. This chapter will review the procedures and markets associated with instrumented spinal fusions where a fixation stabilization device is installed within the lumbar and thoracic regions of the spine.

To ensure that the spine is held in a proper healing position for fusion to occur, pedicle screws/rods, plates and interbody devices are installed surgically and implanted permanently into the patient. Thoracolumbar fixation is typically segmented by pathology, including devices used in the treatment of degenerative, deformity and trauma/tumor cases. Pedicle screw/rod fixation devices are only installed from a posterior surgical approach, whereas plates are installed either from an anterior or a posterior approach.
