The mid- and low-back, or thoracolumbar spine, consists of 17 vertebrae—twelve thoracic and five lumbar—as well as the sacrum. Common pathologies in the anterior (front) thoracolumbar spine include, but are not limited to, degenerative disc disease (DDD), degenerative spondylolisthesis, degenerative scoliosis, adjacent segment disease, and vertebral body tumor or trauma. NuVasive® offers a full surgical solution portfolio with multiple systems designed for the treatment of these and other pathologies that affect the anterior thoracolumbar spine.
