Frequently Asked Questions


aprevo® is cleared by FDA for use in lumbar spine fusion procedures. aprevo® is only available in the US and requires a physician’s order.

A spine fusion surgery involves using bone graft to cause two vertebral bodies to grow together into one long bone in an attempt to eliminate instability in the back and pain in the lower back and lower extremities.

Adult spinal deformity or spinal malalignment is an abnormal alignment or curve of the bony vertebral column. This can be caused by age-related wear and tear on the back or complications from past surgeries.

Traditional spinal fusion implant systems use stock devices that are mass produced and are not designed to fit the individual patient anatomy. In contrast, aprevo® is fully personalized to every individual patient for an optimal fit. Surgeons leverage individualized pre-operative surgical plans powered by proprietary algorithms to achieve aligned expectations for the anticipated benefits of surgery contributing to long term patient satisfaction.

Prior to Surgery

The CT scan and X-ray imaging is used to create a 3D model of your spine to design your personalized aprevo® implant(s).

If you and your surgeon elect to receive a personalized spine implant, your personalized aprevo® implant will be designed once your CT scan and X-ray imaging are received. This imaging should be within six months of your scheduled surgery date.
