News: SpineSource Launches Expandable Lumbar Interbody Cage in U.S.

April 5, 2016 ST. LOUIS, MO - SpineSource, Inc. announced today the U.S. launch of the L-Varlock Lumbar Cage. The L-Varlock is the only expandable interbody that can adjust in situ from 0° to 24° of lordotic angle and up to 7 mm of expansion. 

The L-Varlock is made of titanium alloy and is currently being launched through SpineSource’s independent group of spinal implant sales professionals throughout the United States. 

“Once again, it’s back to the future with spine,” said Tom Mitchell, Founder and CEO of SpineSource. “It is now clear that expandable devices are the future of interbody fusion and titanium has made a comeback. With L-Varlock, surgeons can dial-in any custom lordotic angle necessary to restore and maintain sagittal balance and disc height. He added, “I am pleasantly surprised how quickly U.S. surgeons are gravitating back to titanium because of the bonefriendly properties over PEEK.” 

Expandable lumbar interbody devices have rapidly been accepted since SpineSource launched the expandable WAVE® Cage manufactured by Advanced Medical Technologies, AG (Germany) in 2009. Medtronic, Inc. acquired the WAVE® in 2012.
