Lanx, Inc. announced the full commercial launch of the Aspen™ Flared 5-1 MIS Fusion System, the spinous process fixation device specifically designed to promote fusion at L5-S1. The device features a unique angle on each ventral plate for improved anatomic fit at L5-S1 by conforming to the sacral anatomy. The flared angle also allows the implant to securely fixate at the laminar junction of any level for anterior placement and optimal bony engagement.
The Aspen MIS Fusion System is a family of minimally invasive spinous process fixation devices designed to promote fusion. The Aspen Family includes the standard Aspen, Aspen Flared 5-1, Aspen Medium and LPlate Low Profile implants, all designed to accommodate different patient anatomies with a variety of shapes and sizes. Aspen devices are intended for single level use in the non-cervical spine (T1-S1) for the treatment of degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal trauma or spinal tumor.
