GENERIC NAME: MEDIIMPLANTES LUMBAR TRANSFORAMINAL INTERBODY FUSION SYSTEM – ELITE TLIF.
COMMERCIAL NAME: ELITE TLIF SYSTEM
MANUFACTURER: Mediimplantes SA.
- PEEK – Polyether-ether-ketone polymer (PEEK-OPTIMA® LT1 R20), suitable for surgical implant manufacturing according the ASTM F2026 norm.
- Tantalum: suitable material for surgical implant applications in compliance with ISO 13782 and ASTM F560 norms.
The ELITE TLIF is a system based on the surgical technique known as TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion). It consists of TLIF fusion cases made of PEEK, which are inactive, single-use surgical implants available in different heights. Their purpose is to correct intersomatic space height between vertebrae in the lumbar region of the spine.
Placement of the fusion cases has the purposes of maintaining foraminal and disc heights, maintaining lumbar spine lordosis, and to help with bone graft containment and securement until arthrodesis is achieved. In all cases, usage of the ELITE TLIF System must be accompanied by sufficient quantities of bone graft to facilitate osseointegration.
