Brief Summary:

Prospective, multicenter non comparative and observational study (post-market clinical follow-up).

Patients operated with PASS OCT® manufactured by MEDICREA® INTERNATIONAL between July 2016 and July 2017.

The inclusion period will be 12 months and the follow-up 24 months

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Intervertebral Disc Disease Spondylolisthesis Spinal Stenosis Spinal Neoplasms Spinal Fractures Device: PASS OCT® Spinal System

Detailed Description:

The primary endpoint is to evaluate the safety of the PASS OCT® system.

The secondary endpoints are to analyze the efficacy of the system with several point of view:

  • The quality of fusion and the time of fusion through X rays
  • the pain with VAS
  • the quality of life thanks to questionnaires: NDI (Neck Disability Index) and JOA for myelopathy
  • the daily of the patient: return to work, sport
  • the surgeon satisfaction.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Observational Model: Cohort

Intervention Details:
  • Device: PASS OCT® Spinal System
    Posterior osteosynthesis of the cervical and upper thoracic spine

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 months postoperatively ]
    To quantify and describe adverse events

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fusion [ Time Frame: 1-6 months, 12 months, 24 months postoperatively ]
    Radiological assessment of bony fusion

  2. Disability [ Time Frame: 1-6 months, 12 months, 24 months postoperatively ]
    To assess disability using NDI score

  3. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 1-6 months, 12 months, 24 months postoperatively ]
    To assess quality of life through mJOA scoring system

  4. Pain [ Time Frame: 1-6 months, 12 months, 24 months postoperatively ]
    To assess pain using visual analogue scale
