OsteoMed Awarded in The Ten Best New Spine Technologies for 2013

OsteoMed PrimaLIF OsteoMed Awarded in The Ten Best New Spine Technologies for 2013OsteoMed has been included in Orthopedics This Week Best New Spine Technologies award for the PrimaLIF Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion System.  More information on the PrimaLIF will be coming to the OsteoMed website soon. The annual award rewards inventors, engineering teams, surgeons and their companies who’ve created the most innovative, enduring and practical products in 2013 to treat back pain. To read information on all the awards, visit Orthopedics This Week

From Orthopedics This Week:

PrimaLIF Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF) System
Inventors / Engineers: Corbett Stone, Ephraim Akyuz, Stuart Goble, Bryan Howard, Daniel J. Triplett, Charlie Forton, Nathan Erickson, Andrew Fauth, Jason Glad
Company: Osteomed

Description: PrimaLIF LLIF is an innovative and unique lateral access lumbar interbody fusion system which features a radial blade retractor expansion design, independent blade length adjustment, and both direct and fluoroscopic visibility. The PEEK implant has an anatomically matched shape to maximize endplate contact as well as a self-distracting tip for easy insertion and tantalum radiographic markers for optimal placement confirmation.

PrimaLIF is a complete system and includes a full set of disc prep instruments, retractor and table mount, insertion and trialing instruments as well as all implant sizes and footprints.

One of the problems with current methods of lateral access is that it requires dilation of the access space prior to the insertion of the retractor. As a result, the tips of the dilation tubes and retractor blades are exposed to soft tissue structures and exiting nerve roots. These gaps between the distal ends of the dilation tubes and retractor blades as they twist and tear through the psoas muscle subsequently expose the patient to soft tissue and potential nerve damage, further elevating the need for continuous intra-operative monitoring during the entire sequence.

By contrast, the PrimaLIF retractor radially dilates from the inside out by nesting the retractor blades to the size of an initial probe, then expands them simultaneously using dilators. This unique method of lateral access allows the retractor blades to be placed before dilation occurs, not after.

By dilating from within the retractor, the outwardly expanding blades provide a protected channel through the psoas, allowing for sequential dilation in an environment designed to protect the soft tissue and nervous plexus. While other retractors will have gaps between retractor blades in their final position, a final access ring placed between the blades in the PrimaLIF retractor holds them in position. This ring provides an enclosed circular surgical site without any gaps, greatly reducing tissue creep. With improved access and a reduced risk of nerve injury, users can easily deploy the PrimaLIF retractor and focus on their discectomy and interbody insertion.
