Establish a data repository of patients who have undergone thoracic and/or lumbar
instrumented arthrodesis procedure supplemented by the Implanet Jazz System.
The purpose of this study is to create a data repository of patients who have undergone
spinal arthrodesis procedures supplemented with the Implanet Jazz System. This device is
designed to provide a stable interface between spinal constructs and the rods; it can be
secured around vertebral structures (such as the lamina, transverse or spinous processes)
from T1 to L5 and is intended to provide temporary stabilization as a bone anchor during the
development of a solid bony fusion.
Patients who are candidates for hybrid thoracolumbar fixation with the Implanet Jazz System
during arthrodesis surgery will be asked to participate in this protocol. Clinical data will
be collected as indicated at 6 weeks, as well as 3, 6, 12, 24, 36 48, and 60 months post
surgery in the database. Data collected will include demographic and surgical information,
physiological data, neurological assessments and patient reported outcomes. This
comprehensive database will allow for gathering of relevant information for potential future
- Patients who are candidates for spinal arthrodesis surgery (thoracic and/or lumbar)
supplemented by the Implanet Jazz System are eligible to participate in this study.
- Patients under the age of 18 are excluded because the investigators do not routinely
perform spinal arthrodesis surgery on these patients.
