DSS® Dynamic Stabilization System

Customized Stabilization for Specific Pathologies 

The DSS® Dynamic Stabilization System* is a complete systematic approach to lumbar stabilization. The System is made up of a “fusion” coupler and a “dynamic” coupler, also known as “connectors,” that are placed between the pedicle screws. The DSS® dynamic coupler increases the segmental stiffness of the affected motion segment and restricts the range of motion in flexion, extension, lateral bending and rotation while preserving motion. By selecting the appropriate size DSS® dynamic coupler, the posterior segmental height can be adjusted. The rigid coupler provides rigid segmental fixation thereby promoting fusion.
The modularity of the DSS® Stabilization System allows the combination of DSS® dynamic couplers with DSS® fusion couplers at adjacent levels. Therefore, one segment may have functionally dynamic stabilization (non-fusion) while an adjacent segment has rigid segmental fixation (fusion).
