SENTRY 2 First Case

SENTRY 2 First Case


Huntley, IL, March 7th, 2018 –

Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the first clinical use of SENTRY 2 Lateral Plating System with Dr. Tien Le of Tampa, Florida.

SENTRY 2 lateral plating system joins Life Spine’s full lateral procedural offering, which consists of PLATEAU™-X Lateral Spacer System, LONGBOW™ Expandable Spacer System, CENTRIC® Expandable Retractor System, as well as the graft delivery system OSTEO-LINE™. The SENTRY 2 Lateral Plating System offers a simple yet comprehensive stabilization solution designed to provide supplemental fixation from a lateral single position approach. SENTRY 2, along with SENTRY 4 Lateral Plating System, provides the surgeon the ability to perform a complete stabilization and fixation procedure while the patient is in the lateral decubitus position. This single approach concept negates the time and cost usually associated with the need for patient repositioning for posterior fixation, while providing ample stability. Additionally, the narrow profile of SENTRY 2 allows the surgeon to minimize retraction and trauma to the psoas and lumbar plexus, as well as providing a surgical solution when exposure is limited by the iliac crest or ribs.

“The SENTRY 2 Lateral Plating System provided me great stability in a challenging revision procedure, minimizing the cost, time and impact to the patient due to repositioning for posterior fixation, as well as the challenges associated with revision of a previous posterior fusion” stated Tien Le, MD, Spinal Neurosurgeon at NeuroSpine Center in Tampa, FL. “Single approach surgery with SENTRY 2 provides a true medical economic advantage, as well as reducing risks associated with patient repositioning and preparation. In my hands, the system provided the stability and security required for a minimally invasive lateral procedure. SENTRY 2 has a variety of plate and screw configurations to accommodate even the most challenging patient anatomies.”
