Lynx Cross Connector Allows More Options During Lumbar Surgery

March 10, 2008 - Life Spine has been given FDA 510(k) marketing clearance for Lynx, a new cross connector system designed for use in surgical lumbar fusion procedures.

The Lynx will reportedly allow surgeons more options when performing lumbar spine surgery and presented with a need for a stabilizing cross connector system.

“The cross connector provides multiaxial adjustability in all planes and is simple to use, as it snaps onto the rods, self-adjusts and locks with a single instrument,” said Michael S. Butler, Life Spine’s president, CEO and founder. “What’s more, we have developed both straight and pre-arched versions of the Lynx, providing more tissue sparing surgical options.”
Lynx reportedly features a variety of lengths via its fenestrated design, with straight and arched versions available in an assortment of adjustable length configurations ranging from 25 mm to 100 mm. Lockup of the construct at both rods and at the cross connector’s medial joint is accomplished with a single driver tool, which is designed to lock the implant at a predetermined force, said the company. The cross connector is designed from surgical grade titanium, making it exceptionally strong.
