LIFE SPINE ANNOUNCES ALPHA RELEASE OF THE SENTRY™ ALIF PLATING SYSTEM
Huntley, IL, October 18, 2017
Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures, and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders today announced the Alpha launch of the SENTRY ALIF Plating System.
SENTRY ALIF is a plating system designed to eliminate the need for posterior stabilization with anterior lumbar interbody fusion. The low profile plate design provides a rigidly stable construct without disturbing surrounding vasculature. An Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion prevents the need to disturb the muscles of the lower back potentially reducing post-operative pain and complications.
The SENTRY ALIF system incorporates a Cam style locking mechanism, which provides visual, tactical, and audible feedback to prevent screw back out. This innovative and proven feature allows for easy screw removal and repositioning of the plate for streamlined surgeon usage. SENTRY ALIF has an S1 anchor ledge feature to accommodate L5-S1 surgical procedures, which provides better guidance for proper positioning of the plate.
Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development noted, “We are thrilled to launch the SENTRY ALIF Plating System and add to our Anterior Lumbar solutions portfolio. We have had great success with predicate devices that incorporate the Cam style locking mechanism. It made perfect sense to add the same technology to an anterior lumbar plate. SENTRY ALIF’s low profile design and multiple plate options strengthen Life Spine’s commitment to providing differentiated products to surgeons and their patients.
