The Battalion™ Universal Spacer System offers Comfort, Control and Innovative Design for surgeons performing PLIF/TLIF procedures. The Battalion™ implants introduce a new alternative to interbody fusion by combining the elasticity and radiolucency of PEEK with a Titanium coating for potential osseointegration. The Battalion™ Posterior Straight (PS) and Posterior Curved (PC) implants are offered in multiple footprints, 5 degree lordotic angles and varying widths to match patient anatomy. The implants feature a bulleted nose for easy insertion and the option to implant and rotate or turning the cage in-situ.
The Battalion™ System also features an intuitive 180 degree locking inserter, ensuring proper implant placement and disengagement every time. To further market potential, the Battalion™ System features state-of-the-art instrumentation for disc prep, access and implantation. Each instrument was designed with ergonomics, surgeon comfort and tactile feel in mind.
