Life Spine said Tuesday it won FDA 510(k) for its Prolift expandable interbody fusion system.
The Hunley, Ill.-based company’s Prolift system is all titanium and designed to restore disk height, in-situ, for minimally invasive posterior lumbar interbody fusion procedures, transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion procedures and oblique approaches, the company said.
“The Prolift Expandable Interbody System allows for simplified, contracted insertion with minimal anatomical disruption and retraction. Once implanted, it can expand cephalad to caudal to accommodate disc height ranges from 8mm to 16mm for varying patient anatomy. When paired with the Centerline™ Midline Thoracolumbar Screw System, Prolift creates the optimal hyper-minimally invasive solution,” COO Rich Mueller said in a press release.
Life Spine said it is planning a limited release of the devices for the 2nd quarter of 2016 with a full release later this year.
In December, Life Spine said it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Gruve anterior cervical plate system.
The Gruve plate allows for extreme bone screw angulation, large graft windows and a locking mechanism that provides tactile and visual confirmation of locking upon installation, Life Spine said.
