CALIBER® is an innovative expandable lumbar fusion device that represents the future of MIS by optimizing endplate-to-endplate fit and minimizing insertion force. Insertion of CALIBER® is performed at a contracted height to help reduce the amount of nerve root retraction required and to preserve musculoskeletal composition. Continuous expansion of CALIBER® is designed to restore disc height, while controlled distraction helps to properly tension the annulus and surrounding ligaments.
Minimal impaction: Contracted insertion height eases insertion into the disc space, helping to reduce musculoskeletal disruption and nerve root retraction
Controlled disc height restoration: Controlled continuous expansion and distraction is designed to help restore disc height and reduce the risk of over-distraction
Optimized fit: When expanded in the disc space, the implant optimizes endplate-to-endplate fit. (http://www.globusmedical.com/)
