offers Freedom of Choice
The Medacta MectaLIF Anterior Interbody Fusion Device offers an unprecedented MODULAR design that incorporates the benefits of an anterior plate and a radiolucent interbody spacer.
In order to accommodate specific anatomical requirements and specific pathologies to treat, the surgeon has the ability to assemble any of the available plates intraoperatively giving the complete freedom of choice!
Versatile platform provides intraoperative freedom of choice:
Multiple configurations to cover diverse patient anatomy and surgical needs.
No anterior profile construct for minimal impact.
Greater cranial stability with a caudal flush profile provide a solution for L5-S1 implantation.
Greater stability in extension and torsion with a 4 hole design.
Greater stability in extension and torsion. 3 holes design provides flexibility with respect to the illiac artery bifurcation.
Modular design allows intraoperative assembly to create an indication-specific interbody fusion device.
Cage and Plate are individually sterile-wrapped.
Easy “snap in” concept allows surgeon to assemble (and disassemble) the construct in 1-click to create multiple constructs.
Each implant is designed to securely lock in unique Titanium faceplates that add the security of Titanium and screw fixation.
Designed for easy screw insertion with a guided or free hand technique.
Dedicated instruments and implants variety provide proper hole preparation and screw insertion :
Medial screw design allows for a unique accessible screw insertion avoiding soft tissue
The exclusive divergent screw angulation helps to provide stability and increased pull-out strength.
The combination with converging screw angles helps to provide additional stability and screw backout resistance.
The horizontal screw angulation helps to minimize the bending moments and to prevent the screw derotation and possible screw back out.
Coronal Divergent/Convergent screw angles create a fixed secure bone volume of 3D fixation.
Horizontal angled screws transfer the load on the plates to the cortical bone avoiding stress to the cancellous bone and strip into the bone.
MectaLIF Anterior cages are offered with numerous implant heights and footprints ensuring anterior / posterior support and providing patients with the best anatomical fit.
Sterile implants: provide full implants traceability while eliminating the risk of reprocessing!
The screws securely lock into the plate due to a reached torque minimum which eliminates the need for a separate screw anti-migration locking system.
Plates are threaded to match and guide the screw insertion and to possibily avoid any cross threading.
Large central bone graft area may help the occurrence of fusion through the implant.
