About this product

Division: Spine
Category: Interbody Fusion

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.


Features & Benefits


Features Benefits
Toothed upper and lower surfaces
  • Anchorage in the adjacent vertebral body endplates ensures good primary stability.
Anatomical design

Convex surfaces:

  • Optimal fit to the concave endplates ensures contact over a large surface area between implant and endplate

Rounded leading end:

  • Facilitates insertion and spares the endplates; no drilling or cutting required
The rotation in situ is facilitated by
  • specially aligned teeth
  • bevelled edges
Stronger fusion

The interplay of design and material creates ideal conditions for fusion:

  • Perforated structure for bone ingrowth and through growth
  • Roughened surface
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.
