Project Description

PLIF & TLIF Device from Custom Spine



The Pathway Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) device is inserted through two incisions, which are made bilaterally on opposite sides of the posterior spine. Two smaller implants packed with autogenous grafting material are inserted, one on each side, to support the spine. Care must be taken to prevent nerve root damage.

The Pathway Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) device is inserted through a single incision and placed lengthwise across the disc space for spinal support and autogenous grafting material containment. The surgeon uses a unilateral posterior transforaminal approach to access the disc space. The benefit of this type of approach is minimal nerve root disturbance.

Key Features:

• System Flexibility
• Easy to Insert
• Enhanced Spinal Support
• Migration Resistance
• Promotes Bone Growth
• Improved Implantation Control
