Spineology commenced limited launch of OptiLIF® Endo, an ultra-MIS system that requires only one tubular retractor to seamlessly integrate endoscopes and endoscopic equipment into lumbar interbody fusion procedures. The OptiMesh® Multiplanar Expandable Implant enables this single tube system to employ the smallest diameter tubular retractor of any fusion system on the market.
Procedures leveraging OptiLIF Endo are completed, from start to finish, using only one ultra-minimally invasive tubular retractor, reducing exposure requirements compared to traditional MIS techniques. Such exposure reduction may decrease collateral damage and positively affect post-operative pain, blood loss and length of stay. OptiLIF Endo creates seamless transitions between the endoscopic and fusion instrumentation, eliminating the need to exchange portal tubes or use multiple portal tubes during the procedure, maximizing surgical efficiency and safety.
“OptiLIF Endo provides the power of direct endoscopic visualization throughout the entirety of the procedure, including disc space access, decompression, discectomy/endplate preparation and interbody placement,” said Matt Cronin, Chief Commercial Officer of Spineology. “Direct visualization of the neural structures increases efficiency and safety when accessing the disc space, and the robust offering of new, endoscopic-specific discectomy tools included with OptiLIF Endo facilitates efficient endplate preparation under endoscopy to optimize fusion.”
