Life Spine Gains FDA 510(k) Clearance for ProLift Micro Expandable Spacer

Life Spine received FDA clearance to market the ProLift micro Expandable Spacer System. ProLift micro marks the company's 14th expandable interbody device.

ProLift micro is designed to support Micro Invasive procedures ranging from endoscopic TLIFs to MIS TLIFs/PLIFs. ProLift micro features an 8mm width, self-locking expansion at any height (8mm to 16mm) to suit the patient's individual pathology and anatomical conditions. In addition, ProLift micro is available in a range of sizes and footprints.

Features and benefits include:

  • Post-packable & repositionable, in situ
  • Osseo-Loc® surface technology
  • Intuitive instrumentation that helps protect neural anatomy
  • 0˚, 7˚, 12˚, & 15˚ lordosis
  • Augmented reality-assisted fusions – coming next year

"ProLift micro is designed for a fully percutaneous fusion via an endoscopic approach. The procedure, which is being developed for next year, consists of fully integrated augmented reality (AR) and 3D imaging. The AR vision system allows the surgeon to view live endoscopic 3D video, interactive product images and pre-op/real time radiographs," said Rich Mueller, Chief Operating Officer for Life Spine.
