MIS Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

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.

TLIFs are the most commonly performed MIS IBD fusion type in the US.1 This is attributed to the TLIF approach’s ability to minimize damage to surrounding tissues, directly decompress affected anatomy and the large number of surgeons trained to use this approach. In a TLIF, the oblique posterior approach used to access the intervertebral space minimizes damage to important anatomical structures such as nerve roots, ligaments, and other posterior elements.

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