Pedicle-Based Retractor System

The CENTRIC-T Pedicle-Based Retractor System simplifies MIS TLIF exposure and discectomy, minimizing procedural steps while improving surgical access.  Superior and inferior blades are fixated to the pedicles with AVATAR modular taps, providing surgeons with superior tissue retraction through smaller incisions with the added ability to distract the neural foramen.  The medial blade seamlessly interfaces with the lamina during and after expansion, easily retracting soft tissue from the doctor’s field of vision.  Following interbody insertion, surgeons can pick up where they left off with their posterior fixation, removing the modular taps and inserting AVATAR MIS Pedicle Screws in their place.

  • Maximized simplicity and minimized procedural steps
  • Blades attach directly to the pedicles using a variety of undersized AVATAR Modular Taps, combining surgical steps while eliminating concerns of screw tunnel widening during discectomy
  • Significant range of inward and outward blade tow to accommodate variances in screw trajectories and adequately distract the neural foramen
