Life Spine Announces Another Period of Staggering Growth for PROLIFT Expandable Spacer System


Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops,
manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal
disorders, announced today that the state of the art PROLIFT®
Expandable Spacer System has grown 70% in revenues from the first half
of 2018 over the same period the prior year.

"There are many reasons as to why we are experiencing such high growth
with this line," said Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing and
Business Development for Life Spine, "the PROLIFT system has numerous
key features that make it exceptional. The implant self-locks at any
height to accommodate for unique patient anatomies, can be expanded and
collapsed as needed to ensure correct placement and is available in
multiple heights and lordotic options. Additionally, the instrumentation
allows for a procedure that is efficient, safe and reproducible."

When PROLIFT is combined with the AVATAR® Minimally Invasive
Spinal System and the CENTRIC®-T Pedicle-Based Retractor
System, it allows for a truly micro-invasive TLIF. The hallmarks of this
micro-invasive TLIF are reduced incision size(s), less muscle retraction
and fewer instrument passes.

PROLIFT also features the proprietary OSSEO-LOC surface technology which
creates a unique osteophylic surface architecture for potential bone on
and in-growth and is featured on all Life Spine titanium interbodies.1
