OsteoMed Spine Announces Full Market Introduction of the PrimaLIF™ LLIF Lateral Interbody Fusion System OsteoMed believes the lateral approach does not need to be complicated. PrimaLIF™ LLIF System is like no other system available today! With the smallest initial diameter and five slim blade design, PrimaLIF™ LLIF provides simplicity and security surgeons are looking for in a lateral system.
OsteoMed turns the traditional lateral access inside out.
Utilizing award-winning technology to truly keep the lateral access minimally invasive provides the
patient benefits surgeons are looking for. Controlled expansion from inside the PrimaLIF™ LLIF retractor allows gentle tissue distraction, minimal neuromonitoring utilization, superb nerve protection allowing the surgeon to complete the procedure with the safety, security and simplicity one should expect from a lateral system. PrimaLIF™ LLIF delivers on these expectations.
Design, Implementation, Visualization
Unlike current systems on the market, utilizing multiple dilators with neuromonitoring requirements with each insertion, PrimaLIF™ LLIF retractor slides its 7.5mm initial diameter down over a guidewire. This places the nerves of the Lumbar Plexus posterior throughout the case. The retractor is then gently opened with sequential expanders from inside the retractor to give the surgeon access to the disc space. A rigid ring is placed at the distal end to maintain retractor opening and prevent coning of the blades. Surgeons can focus on the fusion site rather than keeping the retractor in place.
Industry Recognized Innovation
This innovative design secured PrimaLIF™ LLIF a top spot among Orthopedics This Week’s Top 10
New Spine Technologies for 2013 due to its innovation, long-term significance, resolution of a real
clinical problem, and improvements to the standard of care which are all reasons technologies make it
into the Top 10. In addition to this innovative improvement in retractor design, the PrimaLIF™ LLIF
System includes a full set of disc preparation instruments, neuromonitoring components, illumination
and a variety of implant options.
Lateral spinal fusion is often considered difficult or daunting even by the most experienced surgeons.
Access to the lateral spine becomes simpler and more secure with the unique design of the PrimaLIF™ LLIF System.
