The Idys™-PLIF cage has been designed by a team with extensive experience in the development of spinal instrumentation. Made of PEEK-OPTIMA, the Idys™-PLIF cage is specially designed for lumbar and lumbo-sacral interbody fusion via a bilateral posterior approach. The design team focused on creating a PLIF cage suited to the vertebral endplates anatomy that would maintain disc height, restore lumbar lordosis and stabilize the treated segment. Thus, Idys™-PLIF creates favorable conditions to optimize bone fusion. Its complete and ergonomic instrumentation meets the spine surgeon’s need for reliability, safety and ease of use during surgical practice.
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.
Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
