The ZIP ULTRA® is Aurora Spine's minimally invasive interspinous fixation implant for spinal fusion and was developed as an alternative to pedicle screw fixation. The ZIP ULTRA implant is designed for stabilization and load sharing in T1-S1 thoracolumbar fusion procedures as an adjunct to interbody fusion, specifically for the treatment of degenerative disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, and/or tumor. The proprietary ZIP ONE-STEP™ locking mechanism eliminates the use of a set screw. Each ZIP ULTRA implant features a large barrel designed for ZIP Graft™ or other bone material. The ZIP ULTRA is designed in various sizes to accommodate variations in patient anatomy. The ZIP ULTRA features an articulating spike design to increase the potential for anatomical conformity with 12° of articulation.

The ZIP ULTRA MIS Interspinous Fusion System is elegant and well designed for minimally invasive surgery. It grants greater flexibility during procedures, forcing me to re-evaluate how spine surgery should be performed in the future.
