Lanx, a provider of medical devices for spinal surgery, has unveiled Epic Anterior Thoracolumbar Plating System.

The Epic System is an anterior fixation device for use in anterior thoracolumbar fusion procedures.

Lanx said the low-profile plate has been designed for versatility and simplified placement with a single-step cover plate to prevent screw back out and reduce surgical steps involved with traditional anterior plating procedures.

The system includes lumbar and sacral plate options and is available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate different patient anatomies.

Lanx markets a full line of spine technologies, including Aspen Spinous Process Fixation System, a minimally invasive non-pedicle, posterior fixation device designed as a less invasive alternative to traditional posterior fixation devices such as pedicle screws.
