CoreLink have announced the expanded commercial launch for the FLXfit15 articulating-expandable intervertebral body fusion device.
FLXfit15 is a posterior lumbar expandable interbody device that offers up to 15 degrees of controlled and continuous expansion and is one of the only expandable cages on the market that offers articulation, providing ease in precise anterior placement. FLXfit15’s open device architecture enables ample space for graft material and its bulleted-nose and single-instrument inserter/expander are designed to streamline insertion. FLXfit15 is offered in two lengths—32mm and 40mm, and in heights from 8–13mm to accommodate diversity in anatomical need.
“The FLXfit15 interbody device offers the surface area contact and lordosis often desired in an anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) procedure but obtained with a less complicated posterior approach. This implant is inserted as a PL, deploys as a TL, and expands to gain lordosis of up to 15 degrees. It saves me time, is less invasive and offers optimal sagittal balance correction. In my opinion, it’s the best posterior interbody cage on the market,” said Grant Skidmore, neurosurgeon at Chesapeake Regional Healthcare in Norfolk, Virginia.
Jay Bartling, CEO of CoreLink, said, “The surgeon and distributor interest in FLXfit15 has far exceeded expectations in a very short period. CoreLink is committed to providing advanced technology with world class quality.”
“Last year, expandable devices grew to over 20% of the overall interbody market—expandable devices are clearly here to stay. CoreLink’s offering FLXfit15 is a great compliment to our growing product offering and positions us well to meet the increasing needs of surgeons and patients,” said Derek Kuyper, vice president of sales at CoreLink.
