Life Spine said it has achieved the first surgical cases for its Dyna-Link titanium with barb fixation.
The Huntley, Illinois–based company’s Dyna-Link titanium stand-alone anterior lumbar system is a zero-profile, stand-alone device.
Life Spine says Dyna-Link offers surgeons a safe and reliable alternative to 360˚ fusion procedures. In addition to providing immediate fixation, Dyna-Link now has multiple footprints, heights, screw options and barbs available to accommodate various patient anatomies and pathologies.
Dr. Ali Mesiwala — of the DISC Sports & Spine Center in Newport Beach, California — said the Dyna-Link titanium barb offering provides an integrated supplemental fixation system that allows for a less invasive direct anterior approach.
“Barbs are preloaded within the inserter for the titanium implant, permitting seamless deployment of fixation for the cage and eliminating the need for angulated instruments,” Mesiwala said in a news release. “This potentially reduces surgical time and incision size and provides an ideal option to treat my patients in both the outpatient and inpatient setting.”
