A MUSCLE-SPARING, NERVE AVOIDANCE PROCEDURE

Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) procedures by Medtronic offer a complete, minimally invasive solution for the correction of degenerative and deformity spinal conditions. These procedures allow access to all levels from the L2-S1 disc space in one position, without repositioning the patient.

By utilizing an oblique lateral approach to the spine, OLIF enables placement of a large interbody graft on to apophyses, the strongest part of a vertebral body. It provides an anterior column support while avoiding risks and obstacles associated with traditional anterior, posterior, and direct lateral approaches.
