Life Spine begins limited release of lateral solution systems


Life Spine has announced that it has begun a limited release of its Centric lateral retractor and Plateau-X lateral spacer systems.

“The Life Spine expandable retractor is one of the most versatile and user friendly lateral retractor systems I have ever used,” said Michael Liu, a neurosurgeon from Willamette Valley Medical Center in McMinnville, USA. He added: “I believe that with its design enhancements, this will be the best system out in the market today for extreme lateral approaches to the spine.”

According to a press release, the Centric lateral retractor system offers independently controlled blades and an open frame design for maximum visualisation under fluoroscopy.
