Stryker Launching Xia 4.5 Cortical Trajectory Line for LITe LIF Procedures

By Julie A. Vetalice

Stryker Spine is launching Xia 4.5 Cortical Trajectory implants and instruments for LITe® (Less Invasive Technologies) Lumbar Interbody Fusion procedures.

The cortical trajectory procedure allows for a smaller midline incision, and is intended to be more muscle-sparing than standard open procedures. Xia CT implants and instruments are compatible with existing Xia 4.5 implants and instrumentation.
