FDA Clears Life Spine’s Lateral Spacer System
May 6, 2021
The FDA has granted Life Spine 510(k) clearance for its PROLIFT Lateral HELO fixation device, an expandable spacer system used in the lower spine.
The system, which is meant for lateral lumbar interbody fusion and anterior-to-psoas procedures, uses an integrated plating system that enables restoration of disc height while providing lateral stabilization.
The lateral spacer allows for adjustment of up to 20 degrees in the inward curve of the spine with a disc restoration height range of up to 8 millimeters.
