The TiBOW Expandable Spacer System with Osseo-Loc™ surface technology, provides a micro invasive solution for TLIF procedures. TiBOW offers in-situ expansion, as well as a unique surface architecture, which has been shown in studies to promote bone on-growth. Streamlined instrumentation and implant geometry provides the surgeon minimal tissue and neural disruption while achieving surgical goals, expanded endplate coverage, and restoring patient alignment.
Controlled in-situ expansion allows for increased endplate coverage and stability, increased internal graft volume, and physiological levels of lordosis restoration
Bulleted tip simplifies insertion in collapsed degenerative discs without compromising the apophyseal ring
Tactile and visual confirmation of expansion
Multiple lordotic options to assist in restoration of normal spino-pelvic alignment
Allows for post-packing of interbody after implantation when used with the Osteo-Line™ Graft Delivery System and Osteo-Link™ Flowable DBM
