Sentry is a lateral plate that has a low profile with a cam locking mechanism which enables the system to offer visual, tactile and audible confirmation of final locking.

Senty, which is due for full product release by the end of this year, completes Life Spine’s full procedural offering for eLIF, a lateral fusion consisting of Longbow Expandable Spacer, Centric Expandable Retractor System, Osteo-Link biologics, Plateau X lateral spacing and an integrated full line neuromonitoring system.

Bone and Joint Specialists in Indiana Orthopedic Spine Surgeon Dr. Zeshan Hyder said: “The Sentry Lateral Plate System is a key innovation and has changed the way I approach my MIS procedures.

"The slim profile and small size work seamlessly with my minimally invasive approach, allowing me to keep the incision site as small as possible.

“I am also able to achieve the ideal amount of fixation without having to use percutaneous screws. Because of that, I am only creating one incision site instead of multiple.”
