First Implantation of Spine Innovation Expandable Interbody Fusion Cage

By Julie A. Vetalice

Spine Innovation announced first implantations of its Expandable TLIF device.

The implant is inserted on its side to minimize the risk of neural injury, and is rotated 90° to restore disc height up to 16mm and lordosis up to 15°. The implant is then expanded 10mm laterally to up to 22mm wide, including a 10mm x 26mm graft area.

The device, cleared by FDA in January 2016, was featured in ORTHOKNOW® among ten spine companies that received their first orthopaedic-related 510(k) clearance within 1H16.
