Procedure: Surgery
Phase 4

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Post Market Surveillance Validation to Evaluate the Effectiveness of the Following System: Polaris Deformity Spinal System

Further study details as provided by Biomet, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maintenance of Deformity Correction [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary outcome measure for this trial will be the percentage of subjects who have maintained their degree of deformity correction within 10% from immediate post-op to the 6 month follow-up visit.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fusion Success [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects with radiographic evidence of fusion consolidation

  • Decreased Operative Time [ Time Frame: 6 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of Operative times vs. literature

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: September 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Surgery
    All subjects will have spinal surgery between the levels of T1 and Ilium using the Polaris Deformity Spinal System
    Other Names:
    • Polaris Deformity Spinal System
    • Trivium Deformtiy Correction System
Detailed Description:
The purpose of this Post Market Surveillance Validation is to document the performance and clinical outcomes of the Polaris Deformity Spinal System & Trivium 3D Spinal Deformity Correction System. We have extended the study tol collect further outcomes data at the 12 month time point.

Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
All subjects with a spinal defomrity with a Risser score of a minimum of 3 where the physician has determined that the patient requires a spinal fusion of the thoracic or lumbar spine are eligible for entry into the post market surveillance.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • 200 subjects at 10 clinical centers.
  • All subjects undergoing spinal fusion surgery between the levels of T1- Ilium (Thoracic 1 to Ilium)
  • All subjects are skeletally mature with spinal deformity.
  • Risser score must be ≥ 3.
  • Subjects or their representative must be willing and able to give informed consent and assent (if applicable).
  • Subjects who do not meet any of the following contraindications: spinal infection or inflammation, morbid obesity, mental illness, alcoholism, drug abuse, pregnancy, metal sensitivity, foreign body sensitivity, patients with inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site, open wounds local to the operative area, any case not described in the specific indications

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any subject who does not meet the inclusion criteria
