MIS Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF)

Minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches have been shown to typically reduce complications, overall costs, pain, infection rates, and blood loss and yield quicker recovery than traditional open surgery.

PLIF IBDs require implantation through the back of the body. This approach avoids retraction of the organs, and a surgeon may achieve better decompression of the nerve root if there is a lateral stenosis.1

DePuy Synthes Spine has a platform of solutions for the MIS PLIF procedure. The complete portfolio features access instrumentation, interbody devices and pedicle screw fixation.
