The ZIP 51™ is Aurora Spine's minimally invasive interspinous fixation implant for spinal fusion and was developed as an alternative to pedicle screw fixation. The ZIP 51 implant is designed for stabilization and load sharing during T1 - S1 thoracolumbar fusion procedures as an adjunct to interbody fusion, specifically for the treatment of degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, and/or tumor. The proprietary ZIP ONE-STEP™ locking mechanism eliminates the use of a set screw. Each ZIP 51 implant features a large barrel designed for ZIP Graft™ or other bone material. The ZIP 51 is designed in various sizes to accommodate variations in patient anatomy. The flared lower spikes are designed to increase the possibility of greater bone purchase.


In our drive to provide the best products possible for both surgeons and patients alike, all Aurora Spine products are pre-packaged sterile.
