Spineology has released the Elite expandable interbody fusion system.
The Elite expandable interbody fusion system is designed to be implanted at a minimal height and expanded after final positioning in the disc space. This is intended to enable the surgeon to minimise neural retraction and potentially restore anatomical alignment of the spine.
Mark Grubb of Cleveland (USA) implanted the first Elite implant. “The distraction capabilities of the Elite device are exceptional and large graft windows maximise the potential for bone through-growth,” says Grubb.
John Sherman of Minneapolis (USA) adds, “Implant sizing, insertion, and expansion are well designed with the Elite expandable interbody system. Delivering the implant at the smallest possible starting height eases insertion and allows the preservation of patient anatomy.”
