Alphatec Spine, Inc. announced that the company has launched its new Battalion Lateral System with the Alphatec Squadron Lateral Retractor, and successfully completed initial patient surgeries including degenerative, multilevel and L4/L5 spinal segment cases. With the launch of the Battalion Lateral System, the Company is well positioned to begin to compete in the $500 million Lateral market. Battalion Lateral System Overview: The Battalion Lateral System with the Alphatec Squadron Lateral Retractor provides surgeons with a next-generation Lateral system with innovative, unique functionality designed to improve clinical outcomes by reducing tissue creep, minimizing psoas retraction time, and achieving alignment and fusion objectives. The Battalion Lateral System includes numerous proprietary features, including the Squadron Lateral Retractor. The system is designed to allow surgeons to customize the access to match the patient’s unique anatomy through independent retraction of the cranial/caudal blades, DepthControl™ technology that provides in-situ height adjustment for the low-profile blades, and LevelToe™ mechanics to ensure that the blades maintain a parallel plane when toed up to 15°. The Squadron Retractor is also fully compatible with most neuromonitoring platforms enabling access safely through the psoas. The Battalion Lateral Spacer is available in 0° and 15° lordosis with a variety of width and height options for lumbar and thoracic approaches as well as angled and offset instrumentation to provide access to the L4/L5 segment.
