AxiaLIF Advantages

Lower Blood Loss

Data-bloodloss2

The patented pre-sacral axial approach enables significantly lower blood loss when undergoing the AxiaLIF procedure compared to other standard ALIF, TLIF and PLIF procedures. (1,2,3)

Less Operating Room Time

Data-proceduretime2Spend less time in the operating room with AxiaLIF, compared to other standard PLIF, TLIF and ALIF fusion procedures as a result of the patented pre-sacral approach. (1,2,3)

Indication for use: AxiaLIF System is intended to provide anterior stabilization of the L5-S1 spinal segment (s) as an adjunct to spinal fusion. The system is indicated for patients requiring fusion to treat pseudoarthrosis (unsuccessful previous fusion), spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis (Grade 1 or 2 if single-level: Grade 1 if two-level), or degeneration disc disease as defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies. Its usage is limited to anterior supplemental fixation of the lumbar spine at L5-S1 or L4-S1 in conjunction with use of legally marketed posterior fixation such as facet screw or pedicle screw systems at the same levels that are treated with system.
