The X-Stop System

X STOPThe X-STOP is a titanium metal implant designed to fit between the spinous processes of the vertebrae in your lower back. It is designed to remain safely and permanently in place without attaching to the bone or ligaments in your back.

The oval spacer fits between the spinous processes and the wings are designed to prevent the implant from moving.

Warning: The X-STOP implant is manufactured from a titanium alloy of metal. Please inform your doctor if you think you are allergic to titanium or titanium alloy.

Caution: The X-STOP is manufactured from a titanium alloy which is known to produce artifacts if you undergo an MRI exam. If you have an MRI exam, after you have had X-STOP surgery, inform your doctor that you have the X-STOP. Failure to inform your doctor may affect the quality of diagnostic information obtained from these scans. The X-STOP is MRI safe.
