The T-PALâ„¢ Spacer System is a â€œkidney beanâ€ style implant for use in TLIF surgery, which employs several ease of use features. The implant has pyramidal teeth as well as rails on the surface and a self-distracting bullet nose to facilitate a guided insertion technique. The spacers are offered in two footprints, 11 heights and a lordotic angle of 5Â° (0Â° for 7mm height spacers). The unique features include TRACK TECHNOLOGYâ„¢ and an articulating inserter which allows for better placement of the spacer through an open or MIS approach.
The T-PAL Spacer applicator features one instrument for the insertion of the spacer and trials. The applicator features a pivoting option for controlled insertion as well as rigid 0Â° and 80Â° positioning of the spacer.
The T-PAL Spacer and applicator work in conjunction to allow a Guided Insertion Technique. Trial Spacers can be placed at the final spacer location.
