CEREBRO Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) system is designed to be used for open or minimally invasive surgery on lumbar region and it is manufactured from radiolucent PEEK material. The implant, without sharp edges, is designed to use with its easy handled and robust holder allowing controlled rotation during inserting and positioning. It has tantal markers which indicates the net position of the implant. Its anterior part is designed conically in order to facilitate its advance on inferior and superior surfaces during the placement of the implant.
The CEREBRO PLIF system has an implant variety for various different height, width, dimension, angle and lordotic configuration in order to correspond the variabilities of patient’s anatomy.
The CEREBRO PLIF system includes a special thread design which blocks its movement after the placement. Providing a large space for graft use is an other one of its advantages.
In addition to rigid PLIF cages, the CEREBRO PLIF system also provides the expandable PLIF cages including a simple but efficient mechanism which facilitates the positioning and which provides a fitter insertion to the region. A controlled expansion decreases the efficiency of the indirect decompression during the restoration of the disk length. The expansion without space for the cage also optimizes the prevention of cage shift.
