Tyber Medical has launched their lateral access system, a second-generation lateral PEEK/titanium (TyPEEK) composite interbody and lateral plating system.
The Tyber Medical lateral access retractor utilises a three-blade design. The approach and disc preparatory instruments were designed for multiple levels, including L4/L5.
Completing the platform is a lateral plating system that provides three points of fixation in each vertebral body using two screws, designed to eliminate some of the instrumentation required by other systems on the market, according to a company release. This should minimise surgical steps, and free up the space normally required by four screw plates.
