Pathway AVID (patent pending) is a unique articulating vertebral interbody device (AVID) that provides optimal structural support while enhancing spinal fusion. The device includes three intra-linked PEEK® cages, which are inserted using a standard transforaminal approach. Once inside the disc space, each segment is sequentially articulated providing better placement control with a large footprint to increase structural support.
» Improved Implantation Control: The intra-linked articulating cages reduce the need to redirect the implant as seen on standard interbodies
» Reduces Implant Manipulation: In the fully articulated position, AVID follows the natural curvature of the anterior disc space reducing the need to manipulate the implant into the optimal location within the disc space
» Optimal Placement: AVID self-centers during deployment to provide optimal placement in the disc space
» Large Footprint: In the non-articulated position, AVID measures 50 mm in length, almost double a standard TLIF spacer at 27mm
» Increased Support: The large footprint increases the support for the spine while reducing the risk of subsidence
» Greater Load Distribution: The large footprint and symmetric design provides greater load distribution
» Enhanced Fusion Support: AVID’s large footprint and graft containment window allow approximately 50% more auto graft than traditional TLIFs
» Easy to Insert: Bullet shaped nose facilitates ease of insertion into the disc space.
