This self-distracting posterior interbody fusion device is designed to facilitate efficient, versatile and reproducible spinal fusion procedures. The name Ardis, Greek for “point of an arrow,” well suits this system whose implant has a “ double-bulleted” nose providing for an easier insertion. This multipurpose PEEK-OPTIMA* spinal device can be used in a variety of surgical approaches including TLIFs and PLIFs and is ideal for open, mini-open or MIS techniques. Ardis, which is available in a comprehensive range of sizes and has a convex shape, facilitates an individual fit to the patient. The system also features low-profile and glare-resistant instrumentation that allows for excellent visibility during any procedure, regardless of the approach. A threaded inserter with a secondary knob for an enhanced instrument/implant connection gives the surgeon more precision, control and confidence during implantation.
Conforms to varying patient anatomy:
Convex design conforms to the concave vertebral endplates to maximize endplate contact and allow the amount of lordosis to be customized
One of the most comprehensive size ranges in the industry:
Ensures a customized fit due to the comprehensive range of size options that accommodate TLIF and PLIF procedures
Self-distracting and self-retracting:
Double-bulleted design reduces insertion forces and trauma to the endplates while simultaneously retracting nerve roots for added neural protection
