Life Spine introduces two new TLIF products at NASS 2016


Life Spine logoLife Spine has introduced two new transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) products at the 2016 annual meeting of the North American Spine Society (NASS; Boston, USA)—the TLIF Retractor and the Plateau-LO.

According to a company release, the TLIF Retractor was designed in close collaboration with leading spine surgeons with the goal of reducing tissue disruption, while maximising the exposure for better visualisation. The Retractor features independent angulating blades and modular taps, which are designed to anchor to the pedicles and allow for optimal disc space distraction.

Also released was Plateau-LO, an new oblique, lordotic interbody cage, devised to assist with patient sagittal alignment.
