The Virage System is an Occipital-Cervico-Thoracic (OCT) fusion system that will change your perspective on posterior fixation. Virage, meaning a “change in perspective,” or “a movement in a new direction,” reflects how Zimmer’s 360° Omnidirectional Extreme-Angle Screw brings a new experience to posterior fixation surgery.
The Zimmer Biomet Spine Virage™ OCT Spinal Fixation System is a posterior system intended for the Occipital-Cervical-Thoracic spine (Occiput-T3). The system consists of a variety of rods, anchors, transverse connectors, screws, and polyaxial screws to achieve an implant construct as necessary for the individual case. The system also includes the instruments necessary for inserting and securing the implants. The implant system is intended to be removed after solid fusion has occurred.
The Virage System implants are fabricated from medical grade titanium alloy and medical grade cobalt chromium alloy. Implants made from medical grade titanium, medical grade titanium alloy, and medical grade cobalt chromium may be used together. Never use titanium, titanium alloy, and/or cobalt chromium with stainless steel in the same construct. All implants are single use only and should not be reused under any circumstances.
Refer to the Virage OCT Spinal Fixation System Surgical Technique manual for additional information on how to use this device. Contact your Zimmer Biomet Spine Sales Representative or Zimmer Biomet Customer Service for a copy of the current Surgical Technique.
The Virage OCT Spinal Fixation System is intended to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments as an adjunct to fusion for the following acute and chronic instabilities of the craniocervical junction, the cervical spine (C1-C7) and the thoracic spine from T1-T3; traumatic spinal fractures and/or traumatic dislocations; instability of deformity; failed previous fusions (e.g., pseudoarthorsis); tumors involving the cervical spine; and degenerative disease, including intractable radiculopathy and/or myelopathy, neck and/or arm pain of discogenic origin as confirmed by radiographic studies, and degenerative disease of the facets with instability. The Virage OCT Spinal Fixation System is also intended to restore the integrity of the spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a limited time period in patients with advance stage tumors involving the cervical spine in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion.
In order to achieve additional levels of fixation, The Virage OCT Spinal Fixation System may be connected to the Instinct Java and Sequoia Spinal Systems offered by Zimmer Biomet Spine, using rod connectors and transition rods. Refer to the Instinct Java and Sequoia Spinal System package insert for a list of the system specific indications of use.
The titanium Lentur™ Cable System to be used with the Virage OCT Spinal Fixation System allows for cable attachment to the posterior cervical or thoracic spine.
