The Polaris 5.5 Spinal System is a load sharing, top loading, low profile system. The system is designed to address degenerative pathologies and is a streamlined lumbar fixation system that uses a superior locking mechanism. The seat enables secure interface with the instruments for maximum manipulation agility. The design goals were to aid the surgeon with intra-operative efficiency and effectiveness while maintaining integrity and ease.

Product Features

  • Minimizes Cross Threading: Upon initial contact, the upward and downward oriented thread lips easily align and guide the threads together, thus minimizing cross threading.
  • Minimized Seat Splay: Final torquing directs the forces across the upward and downward oriented thread lips in an inward fashion to significantly minimize seat splay.
