CoreLink this week announced the limited commercial release of its Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLIF) Instrument Set.
The OLIF technology is a less invasive approach to the lower lumbar spine for faster recovery times and minimized psoas disruption.
“The addition of OLIF instrumentation bolsters our minimally invasive spine surgery options and builds on our robust lateral access, fusion, and stabilization platforms. We’ve taken the approach a step further with 3D printed surgical steel instrumentation, our latest foray into additive manufacturing technology. This allows us to build light-weight instruments with features that would not be possible using traditional subtractive methods,” CEO Jay Bartling said in a news release. “We challenged ourselves to a strong year of product development and our team has been consistently delivering.”
The CoreLink OLIF Instrument Set has nearly 100 instruments and 40 procedure-specific tools, including an advanced retractor system. The set also features patent-pending 3D printed trials to allow for rapid interbody sizing.
CoreLink’s CL5 PEEK and F3D titanium alloy lateral interbody cages are compatible with the new instrument set.
