ALLENDALE, N.J., July 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker Spine announced today the launch of the LITe (Less Invasive Technologies) ALIF Procedural Solution. This comprehensive platform will be featured at booth #16 during the International Meeting on Advanced Spine Technologies (IMAST) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from July 8th - 10th.
Originating in 2005 with a single interbody device, Stryker's ALIF Portfolio now features the LITe Anterior Retractor, the Reliance AL Instrumentation System, the AVS AL and ALign PEEK Spacer Systems, the LITe Plate System, the Anchor-L Anterior Lumbar Cage System, and most recently, the Aero-AL Anterior Lumbar Interbody and Fixation System. With the introduction of the LITe ALIF Procedural Solution, customers can combine the LITe Anterior Retractor with Aero-AL, the only in-line ALIF device in the U.S. market that compresses across the interbody1. The combination of these two new technologies supports a less invasive exposure with minimized retraction.
"Our growing platform of ALIF products is the result of our strategic focus to add value to our procedural solutions," said John Mayor, Vice President of Marketing of Stryker Spine. "The launch of the LITe ALIF Procedural Solution validates our continued commitment to this evolving segment. We will continue to leverage our innovative approach to develop differentiated products within the ALIF space for surgeons and their patients."
