Category: Interbody Fusion
The T-PAL implant is intended to replace lumbar intervertebral discs and to fuse the adjacent vertebral bodies together at vertebral levels L1–S1. The T-PAL implant is designed for a transforaminal approach.
Indications are lumbar and lubosacral pathologies in which segmental spondylodesis is indicated, for example:
Important: T-PAL must be applied in combination with posterior fixation.
