These TLIF technologies allow for TLIF placement of interbody devices using a direct posterior, or ACT MediaLIF, approach.

“Surgeons frequently prefer placing a single cage using the TLIF technique over more traditional PLIF techniques, but experience difficulty with TLIF when using the latest mini-midline techniques,” said John Booth, CEO of Spineology Inc.

“These unique technologies allow surgeons to use a TLIF technique and still take advantage of the benefits that the ACT MediaLIF procedure provides.”

Dr. Vivek Mohan, MD, of Dupage Medical Group in Chicago added, “Having technology that allows me to do a TLIF in conjunction with the ACT MediaLIF procedure provides the best solution for my patients.

The procedure allows me to reduce the incision size and muscle trauma, and minimize the amount of bony removal to place the cage. It also facilitates anterior cage placement to maximize lordosis restoration.”

The ACT MediaLIF procedure combines Spineology’s Medius Retractor, Rampart Interbody and Fortress Pedicular Fixation Systems to provide an anatomy-conserving approach to posterior lumbar surgery that can reduce incision length, dissection and retraction requirements compared to traditional open surgery.

Spineology Inc. provides innovative, anatomy-conserving spinal technologies for surgeons and their patients.

Spineology surgical techniques conserve spinal bone, ligament and muscle tissue. Spineology is committed to increasing procedural efficiency, reducing surgical morbidity and accelerating patient recovery.
