Trial Information

A Multi-Center Prospective Patient Outcomes Evaluation of the EBI Vuelock™ Anterior Cervical Plate System

Inclusion Criteria:

1. The patient will undergo anterior cervical fusion with the VueLock™ Anterior Cervical
Plate System for treatment of degenerative disc disease (as defined by neck pain of
discogenic origin of the disc confirmed by patient history and radiographic studies),
trauma, tumors, deformity (defined as kyphosis, lordosis, or scoliosis),
pseudarthrosis, and/or failed previous fusion.

2. The patient must be available for follow-up during the study.

3. The patient must be skeletally mature (epiphyses closed).

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Patients with other pathology at the involved spinal level, e.g., osteomyelitis,
Paget's disease, pathologic fracture, etc.

2. Patients with a disease entity or condition that totally precludes the possibility of
bony fusion such as known active cancer, etc.

3. Pregnant or nursing females.

4. Patients who in the opinion of the investigator would be psychologically unwilling or
unable to understand or complete the protocol, especially those unwilling or unstable
to participate in the follow-up.
