SLIF

A new application of ”3D-Truss-Ti” spatial mesh

”SLIF” (straight Lumbar Interbody Fusion) implant combines the fusion enhancing features of the ”3D-Truss-Ti” structure together with the precision of insertion and placement provided by the unique “anchoring guides”.

It belongs to the CarLIF family – a group of implants made with ”3D-Truss-Ti” Electron Beam Technology (EBT) – which under LfC have been used for the first time in history to manufacture spinal implants.

The above-mentioned implants constitute significant progress to spine surgery due to their respective functions related to new trends in spine treatments:

”Bridging of spine” with ”3D-Truss-Ti” spatial construction.

The ”s-LIF” implant is specifically dedicated to the Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) approach but can be used in other surgical approaches (PLIF, XLIF, ALIF, etc.), giving the surgeon a choice.
