Spine Wave announced immediate availability of the upgraded Leva® Interbody Device.
Leva Interbody is an all-titanium expandable interbody for lumbar spine fusion performed using TLIF and PLIF approaches. Leva features a wide graft chamber to apply a large amount of bone graft within and around it, especially when using Spine Wave’s GraftMag® Graft Delivery System (pictured above).
The upgraded system combines the Leva Interbody Device with the GraftMag Graft Delivery System into one set configuration and also includes a new insertion and expansion instrument designed for open and minimally invasive spine procedures, and an expandable sizing instrument that allows for rapid, precise pre-expansion implant sizing.
“The expandable sizer used together with the Leva® Interbody Device and GraftMag® Graft Delivery System, has given me a complete and repeatable procedure,” said Christopher P. Gallati, M.D. “I am able to accurately measure the height of the disc space for proper implant selection, before easily inserting and expanding the Leva® Interbody Device. The open architecture of the Leva® implant and the GraftMag® Graft Delivery System enable the complete, rapid and easy grafting of both the expandable titanium cage and the entire prepared disc space.” Dr. Gallati practices neurosurgery at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
