SeaSpine commenced limited launch and initial case completion for the Skipjack™ Expandable Interbody System, based on technology acquired from NLT Spine.
Skipjack is designed to provide continuous in situ expansion in height or lordosis, with up to 20º of lordotic correction from a posterior approach. Delivery instrumentation is included to post-pack graft into the implant and surrounding disc space.
In situ expansion allows a smaller implant to be placed through a small incision, which can reduce tissue disruption and minimize endplate damage.
