SINGLE LEVEL FUSION KIT
A convenient pedicle screw kit is available for single level fusions. The kit includes:
• (4) titanium polyaxial pedicle screws with titanium set screws
• (2) 5.5 x 80 mm titanium rods
Arcas Titanium Polyaxial Pedicle Screw kits are packaged as a set containing 4 screws, 4 set screws, and 2x 80 mm length stabilization rods. Rods can be custom sized for your application.
The 3.5 mm hex driver is used to place the screws into the bone and to attach the set screw to the pedicle screw tulip head. The counter torque instrument is used to hold on to the tulip head as the pedicle screw body is tightened into the bone to prevent shifting. Tools may be re-autoclaved for repeated use.
