Huntley, IL, April 19, 2017

Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, is pleased to announce its participation at the American Association of Neurosurgical Surgeons (AANS) Annual Meeting, April 22-26 in Los Angeles, CA, at Booth #1857. The meeting is expected to attract over 3,500 neurosurgeons and other healthcare professionals from across the globe.

Life Spine continues to focus on transforming procedurally based surgical solutions by showcasing the innovative PLATEAU®-C Ti Cervical Spacer System, PROLIFT® Expandable Interbody and the 2016 Spine Technology Award-Winning LONGBOW® Expandable Lateral Spacer platforms.

PLATEAU-C Titanium joins Life Spine’s extensive portfolio of 62 product solutions cleared by the FDA, and was commercially launched April 3rd, 2017.

PROLIFT is a best-in-class expandable interbody which allows for in-situ disc height restoration for micro-invasive PLIF, TLIF or oblique approach. PROLIFT, in conjunction with CENTERLINE® Midline Screws and CALYPSO™ Posterior Retractor System, allows for minimal tissue and muscle distraction with a 3mm bulleted tip and height increase from 8mm-16mm from initial insertion to full expansion.

LONGBOW Expandable Lateral Spacer System, when used with the CENTRIC® Lateral Retractor System, allows for the potential reduction of nerve damage and post-operative complications. These systems were designed to work together to minimize the amount of psoas and lumbar plexus retraction up to 45% during a lateral procedure. LONGBOW also simplifies insertion of bone graft, up to 11cc, post-expansion.
