EXPEDIUM® 4.5 System

In pediatric patients and small stature patients, larger deformities can be challenging issues in spinal surgery. Concerns over implant profile and implant selection, along with the ability to choose instrumentation based on patient size and pathology are common when treating this patient group.

DePuy Synthes Spine has developed a complete rod-hook-screw system specifically designed for these smaller anatomies: the EXPEDIUM® 4.5 System.

The EXPEDIUM 4.5 System is an option for cases in which the surgeon is challenged with implant protrusion and cosmetic issues. In addition, the system combines a variety of screw and hook designs (e.g., polyaxial, uniplanar, etc.) and rod materials (i.e., Ti, SS and CoCr Alloy) to offer flexibility for the treatment of different cases.
