EndoLIF® - Endoscopic Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Spinal stabilization represents an essential treatment option for a number of spine conditions. With our minimally invasive procedures and associated implants,
we offer a safe and effective alternative to conventional surgical stabilization techniques. The joimax® portfolio covers everything from endoscopically-assisted implantation of intervertebral cages to percutaneous screw-rod systems and products for vertebral body augmentation, including a bone cement.

The EndoLIF® Concept

The EndoLIF® access is particularly tissue-conserving and allows for endoscopically-assisted implantation of intervertebral cages.

It works exceptionally well with our EndoLIF® cage portfolio, comprising additively manufactured titanium alloy implants. Just like with our other techniques the procedure is safely guided over a wire.

The EndoLIF® method is derived from the proven TESSYS® access, however experience with this system is not mandatory.

EndoLIF® offers the possibility of tissue conservation and gentle preparation of the vertebral disc space with endoscopic assistance. There is no need to remove stabilizing dorsal bone structures. Therefore, a fusion can be achieved without permanent structural damage to the bone or the multifidus muscle, which is vital for spinal stability.

The clearly structured EndoLIF® instrument set consists of two trays: one tray for the endoscopically assisted access and one tray for the preparation of the intervertebral disc space and implantation of the EndoLIF® cages.

Innovative Solutions – Unique Benefits

EndoLIF® cages are designed for both minimally invasive endoscopic and open (PLIF/TLIF) fusion surgery of the lumbar spine to provide surgeons with an optimal treatment method for spinal stabilization. They consist of a titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) and have exceptionally high surface roughness, which is favorable for this application.

The EndoLIF® cages have a characteristic diamond cell structure that can be filled with autologous bone or bone substitute to facilitate bone ingrowth. All cages are canulated and can be implanted safely using the “Over-the-Wire Technique”.
