Life Spine’s Expandable Spacer System Earns Additional FDA Clearance

July 26, 2019

The FDA has handed Life Spine 510(k) clearance for two new widths of its Prolift expandable spacer system

The agency cleared the device in 8mm–10mm widths, enabling the device to accommodate a wider range of patients that require transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) and posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) procedures.

“As opposed to traditional static interbodies, Prolift was engineered to reduce the need for surgical steps, such as sequential trialing, and in turn reduce operating time,” Life Spine said.
