The CD Horizon Legacy Spinal System

Purpose

The CD Horizon® Legacy™ Spinal System can be used to treat scoliosis, a condition in which the spine develops one or more abnormal, side-to-side curves that in turn may affect the body’s overall balance and alignment, as well as possibly lead to other physical and health problems.

Size and Placement

The CD Horizon Legacy Spinal System consists of rods, hooks, and screws for implantation in the spine to correct the abnormal curvature. The system is available in multiple rod diameters and screw sizes so your surgeon can choose the appropriate size for your condition, anatomy, and activity level.
