HUNTLEY, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announces the limited releases of the LONGBOW™ Expandable Lateral Spacer System and the CENTRIC® Lateral Retractor System for Expandable Lateral Interbody Fusion (eLIF) procedures.
“The LONGBOW implant is a game changer for lateral surgery. It is the first implant on the market that accomplishes a larger graft area and greater footprint coverage with less retraction to the psoas muscle,” said Dr. Zeshan Hyder, orthopedic spine surgeon at the Bone and Joint Specialists in Indiana.
The LONGBOW Expandable Lateral Spacer System, in conjunction with the CENTRIC Lateral Retractor System, is the first interbody that expands anterior to posterior and is specifically designed to minimize the amount of posterior muscle retraction, up to 55%, required during lateral procedures, thus significantly reducing the potential for nerve damage and post-operative complications.
