NuVasive grows expandable spinal interbody portfolio

NuVasive Inc, a manufacturer of spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally-integrated solutions, recently announced the launch of its TLX® 20 degree expandable spinal interbody implant with a first-of-its-kind oblique profile designed for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedures. This product launch is another step forward in the company’s strategy to build a comprehensive expandable portfolio to best support optimal clinical outcomes.

The TLX 20 expandable implant’s integrated auto-lock feature allows surgeons to incrementally customise expansion up to 20 degrees of oblique lordosis and tailor implant expansion based on a patient’s clinical need, compared to many expandables in the market which only offer up to 15 degrees of lordosis. The implant profile is designed to optimally contour to a patient’s interdiscal space to help maintain coronal alignment while achieving sagittal correction, an important aspect of desired patient outcomes that has been clinically validated through research and data from NuVasive’s Integrated Global Alignment® platform.
