About this product

The SYNFIX® Evolution Implant, a stand-alone anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) implant, employs the SYNFIX Implant technology which has been used clinically in the SYNFIX ® LR Implant since 2004.

The SYNFIX ® Implant technology is a zero-profile construct that includes four diverging locking screws. This design negates, in most circumstances, the need for additional fixation
