PLIVIOS™ is the Synthes Cage System for Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF). It consists of radiolucent PEEK implants and the corresponding instruments.
The PLIVIOS REVOLUTION implants represent a further development of the PLIVIOS System. The cages are aligned in situ by rotation and allow an atraumatic restoration of the body’s natural lordosis.

The interplay of design and material creates ideal conditions for fusion:
|Only small insertion window is required. The posterior rim of the endplates is left intact, thus considerably reducing the risk of cage migration.|
|Two x-ray markers facilitate radiologic identification|
|PEEK OPTIMA™ is biocompatible. The absence of carbon fibres minimises the risk of systemic uptake and local inflammatory reactions.|
