Indications for Use (IFU)

The Avenue® L Interbody Fusion System is indicated for intervertebral body fusion of the lumbar spine, from L2 to S1, in skeletally mature patients who have had six months of non-operative treatment. The device is intended for use at either one level or two contiguous levels for the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD) with up to Grade I spondylolisthesis. DDD is defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies. The device system is designed for use with or without integrated fixation and must be used in conjunction with posterior supplemental fixation (e.g., pedicle screws). The device system is intended to be used with autograft to facilitate fusion.
