Globus Medical, Inc. Announces RISE-L, an Expandable Lateral Interbody Fusion Devicec
Jul 1 15
Globus Medical, Inc. announced the introduction of RISE®-L, a lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) device and the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of expandable spacers. The LLIF procedure, approaching the spine from the side of the patient, allows for a larger implant footprint, and is less disruptive to lower back muscles as compared other approaches, which may result in less blood loss and faster recovery. RISE®-L is a vertically expanding LLIF device designed to minimize impaction, maximize indirect decompression, and provide a large graft space optimal for fusion potential. The all-titanium implant is designed for up to 7mm of continuous in situ expansion and to provide restorative disc height with proper anatomical fit. Available in multiple sizes, in parallel or lordotic profiles, RISE®-L provides options for surgeons to address proper sagittal balance. A large single graft chamber can be filled with autogenous bone graft material after insertion and expansion to ensure even contact with both vertebral endplates. Globus Medical has steadily innovated its lateral platform starting with the PATRIOT® TransContinental™ LLIF cage over six years ago by bringing to market several advanced treatment options including the CALIBER®-L expandable cage, InterContinental® plate-spacer, and PLYMOUTH® lateral plate. Each product can be used in conjunction with Globus Medical’s MARS™ and MARS™ 3V retractors.
