Technique Guide

Indications~Norian Drillable is intended for bony voids or defects of the extremities and pelvis that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure. These defects may be surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects created from traumatic injury to the bone. The product provides a bone void filler that resorbs and is replaced with bone during the healing process. Norian Drillable can be used as an adjunct to conventional rigid hardware fixation by supporting the bone fragments during the surgical procedure. Once the material has set, it acts as a temporary support medium and is not intended to provide structural support during the healing process. Norian Drillable is intended to be placed into bony voids either before or after final fixation.~Contraindications~The safety and effectiveness of this device for use in the spine has not been established.~Use of this device is contraindicated in the spine, including use in the pedicle, as this could be associated with leakage of the device material into the bloodstream, which could cause serious adverse events, including death and should not be used in the presence of active or suspected infection.~Norian Drillable is not for screw augmentation.~Norian Drillable is not for use in:~Patients with traumatic open injuries that are predisposed to infection~Stress bearing applications~Areas where adjacent bone is avascular, or is incapable of supporting or anchoring the implanted rigid fixation hardware~Patients with compromised health (e.g. abnormal calcium metabolism, metabolic bone disease, a recent local untreated infection, vascular or severe neurological disease, infection, immunologic deficiencies or systemic disorders) that result in poor wound healing or will result in tissue deterioration over the implant site~Patients who are skeletally immature~Vertebral compression fractures~Intra‐articular space (i.e. material injected into the joint space)~Please refer to the package insert for a complete list of indications, contraindications, precautions and warnings.~For further information on DePuy Synthes products, please contact your local DePuy Synthes representative.~
