16 Sep CoreLink Releases First-Of-Its-Kind Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion Instrument Set With 3D Printed Instruments
CoreLink’s new OLIF offering includes approach-specific instruments for lower lumbar spine anterolateral access and fusion.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CoreLink, LLC, a leading designer and manufacturer of spinal implant systems, today announced the limited commercial release of the Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLIF) Instrument Set. The OLIF technique is a less invasive approach to the lower lumbar spine, which can allow for faster recovery time and minimized psoas disruption.
The CoreLink OLIF Instrument Set is a comprehensive solution with nearly 100 instruments and 40 procedure-specific tools, including an advanced retractor system. Disc preparation and implantation instruments are oblique-angled to provide easy access to the disc space and limit the need to perform any implant rotation or other instrument maneuvers that may excessively strain surrounding anatomical structures. The set features patent-pending 3D printed trials to allow for rapid interbody sizing. The system is compatible with CoreLink’s CL5 PEEK and F3D titanium alloy lateral interbody cages.
