Types of Popular Spine Implants Technologies in Latin America 

Pedicle Screw Systems 

A widely used spine implant in spinal fusion surgeries, these pedicle screw systems are placed into the pedicles of the vertebrae. Furthermore, they are connected by rods to create a stable spine construct. 

Interbody Fusion Devices 

Interbody fusion devices facilitate spinal fusion by enhancing bone growth between adjacent vertebrae. These devices are put between the vertebral bodies through four pertinent approaches, namely, 

  • ALIF (Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
  • PLIF (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
  • TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
  • LLIF (Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion)

The most common interbody fusion devices include cages, spacers, and bone graft substitutes. 

 Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) 

An avid replacement for traditional spinal fusion surgeries, an ADR procedure involves the replacement of the natural disc with a prosthetic disc to mimic its function. These orthopedic implants are available across sizes in Latin America for individual demand and needs.
