Stabilization of soft tissues and fractures
Polytrauma/multiple orthopaedic trauma
Vertically stable pelvic fractures, or as a treatment adjunct for vertically unstable pelvic fractures
Arthrodesis and osteotomies with soft tissue problems; failures of total joints
Neutralization of fractures stabilized with limited internal fixation
Non-unions/septic non-unions
Intraoperative reductions/stabilization tool to assist with indirect reduction
Unilateral rectilinear bone segment transport or leg lengthening


Warning: DePuy Synthes self-drilling, self-tapping Schanz screws and Steinmann Pins are not approved for screw attachment or fixation to the posterior elements (pedicIes) of the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine.
