HUNTLEY, Ill,–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Titanium Stand-Alone ALIF Spacer System.

“This system clearance is the capstone on a year of incredible product launches for us,” said Michael Butler, President and CEO of Life Spine. “The system boasts our OSSEO-LOC surface technology, a comprehensive offering of footprints, an integrated cam locking mechanism and the option to utilize robust barbs in lieu of screws if supplemental fixation is employed.”

The Titanium Stand-Alone ALIF System comes in footprints of 34mm x 24mm, 38mm x 28mm and 42mm x 30mm. Additionally, there are three lordotic options of 6°, 12° and 18° and heights ranging from 11-17mm. The screws allow for stand-alone use of the system and offer angulation up to 45°.
