Life Spine today said it had its first surgical case with its Prolift Lateral Helo Fixated expandable lateral spacer system.
The company announced in May 2021 that FDA had cleared the system.
The Prolift Lateral Helo Fixated with Osseo-Loc surface technology offers a micro-invasive solution for lateral lumbar interbody fusion, according to Huntley, Illinois–based Life Spine.
The system has in situ lordotic expansion from 5° up to 20°, allowing for sagittal balance and lordosis correction. Life Spine says the design minimizes impaction, preserves endplate integrity, and maximizes indirect decompression.
“The treatment for adjacent segment disease in the lumbar spine continues to evolve and improve,” said Dr. Adam Lewis of Jackson Neurosurgery Clinic. “Prolift Lateral Helo Fixated allows for up to 8 mm of expansion and 5-20˚ lordotic expansion. Surgeons can restore sagittal and coronal balance with a short learning curve.”
