    ALIF System

    The El Capitan Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion System is a comprehensive system that provides a complete range of anatomic spacers and fixation options for rigid anterior lumbar stabilization. The intuitive design of the system provides the versatility to accommodate a wide array of anatomical challenges to ensure an efficient, streamlined procedural sequence.

Implants Overview

    • Interbodies

      All El Capitan Anterior Lumbar Interbody Spacers are:

      • Available in either Acid-etched Ti or HA PEEK
      • Four different axial footprint options to accommodate varied patient anatomy
      • Large central aperture to pack bone graft to provide a greater opportunity for fusion
      • Tapered posterior edge allows for self-distraction of the intervertebral space during insertion, as well as conservation of critical structural anatomy

      • Acid-etched surface enhances and increases the efficiency of bone growth
    • HA PEEK Overview

      • HA is fully integrated, not coated, making it available on all surfaces of the spacer to provide an osteoconductive surface for bone ingrowth
      • Unidirectional serrated teeth to resist migration postoperatively
      • Radiographic markers provide fluoroscopic visualization of the exact orientation of the spacer during implantation
