Life Spine has announced that the first surgical cases using its Dyna-Link titanium device with barb fixation have been completed. The Dyna-Link titanium stand-alone anterior lumbar system is a zero-profile, standalone device that the company says offers surgeons a safe and reliable alternative to 360˚ fusion procedures.
The firm adds that, in addition to providing immediate fixation, multiple footprints, heights and screw options, now barbs are available to accommodate various patient anatomies and pathologies to promote fusion.
Ali Mesiwala of the DISC Sports and Spine Center (Newport Beach, USA), said: “Dyna-Link titanium barb offering provides an integrated supplemental fixation system that allows for a less invasive direct anterior approach.
“Barbs are preloaded within the inserter for the titanium implant, permitting seamless deployment of fixation for the cage and eliminating the need for angulated instruments. This potentially reduces surgical time and incision size and provides an ideal option to treat my patients in both the outpatient and inpatient setting.”
