> Minimally Invasive
> 2x Large cavities for optimum bone in-growth
> Anatomically shaped to form part of natural end-late curvature
> 2 lateral lengths ensures large bearing surface, minimizing risk of subsidence
> Tantalum markers ensure higher flouroscopic imaging visibility than titanium
> Variety of heights 6mm - 12mm
> Serrated superior and inferior surfaces provide secure initial-seating characteristics
The BioLign™ TLIF cage maintains and/or restores lumbar lordosis while bearing the bulk (80%) of the anteriorly placed load on the patient’s spinal column. The TLIF cage system also restores inter-vertebral height. The system does away with the need for abdominal exposure, with its inherent risks, and saves time in the operative procedure. Another advantage of the TLIF is that neural decompression can be achieved at the same time and the facet joint complex is resected on one side only. The unique design of the cage permits optimum insertion of autologus or bone substitute while its weight bearing capabilities are optimised through this robust design. The design further permits implantation from either side, depending on the location of the disc protrusion, or purely based on surgeon preference.
