Idys™-PTLIF cage has been designed by a team experienced in the development of spinal
instrumentation. Made of PEEK-OPTIMA, Idys™-PTLIF cages are specially designed for posterior
lumbar and lumbo-sacral intersomatic arthrodesis. Idys™–PTLIF allows two surgical approaches:
- Unilateral posterior approach (TLIF-Oblique)
- Bilateral posterior approach (PLIF).
The design team focused on creating a PTLIF cage adapted to vertebral anatomy that would maintain
disc height, restore lumbar lordosis and stabilize the treated segment, thus creating optimal
conditions for bone fusion.
Indications for use
The Idys™ LIF Cages are indicated for use with autogenous bone graft in patients
with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two levels from L2 to S1. These
DDD patients may also have up to Grade 1 Spondylolisthesis or retrolisthesis at
the involved levels. DDD is defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of
the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies. These patients should be
skeletally mature and have had six months of non-operative treatment. These
implants may be implanted via a posterior and/or transforaminal approach. These
devices are intended to be used with supplemental fixation instrumentation
which has been cleared by the FDA for use in the lumbar spine.
