Life Spine launches four minimally invasive systems at NASS


Life Spine has revealed four new products at the 2015 North American Spine Society meeting in Chicago.

Designed to simplify expandable lumbar interbody fusions (eLIFs) and allow for larger graft areas while minimising muscle retraction are the Longbow Expandable Lateral Spacer System and the Centric Lateral Retractor System.

The SImpact Sacroiliac Joint Fixation System is designed to help promote bone fusion by offering in-situ controlled compression via a two part screw incorporating Life Spine’s proprietary Osseo-Loc surface treatment. The Centerline Cortical Thoracolumbar Spinal System offers one of the smallest stature cobalt chrome systems on the market for minimal incisions and tissue retraction, according to Life Spine.

“Longbow is the first MIS Anterior-Posterior expandable lateral system on the market reducing the muscle retraction by as much as 55%,” says Michael Butler, president and CEO of Life Spine.

All products were featured at the annual meeting as well as the Life Spine Technical Product Fair on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, at the corporate office in Huntley, Illinois.
