SUGAR LAND, Texas /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: TeDan Surgical Innovations (TSI) announced the release of the Phantom AL Retractor System used to facilitate minimally invasive exposure and retraction of the anterior lumbar spine. The Phantom AL Retractor System provides superior visualization with minimal tissue trauma during MIS ALIF procedures.

Two angled attachment arms provide one point connection to the circular retractor ring increasing stability and minimizing the frame profile. Unlike other systems, the Phantom AL Retractor includes a lighting system that directly illuminates the surgical site using a flexible arm and low heat LED light. The system also includes a variety of semi-radiolucent retractor blades that are capable of independent retraction and angulation to accommodate the diverse anatomical needs of the patient.

“The Phantom AL Retractor System is the best MIS Anterior Lumbar Retractor on the market,” said Dr. Thomas Terramani, Vascular Surgeon at Vascular Associates of San Diego. “The system provides a secure and safe combination of retractor blade design, easy adjustability and system rigidity to facilitate anterior spine access.”

The Phantom AL Retractor System is TeDan Surgical Innovations’ first retractor designed exclusively for anterior lumbar access.

“The Phantom AL Retractor strengthens our ever-expanding portfolio of Phantom MIS access instrumentation,” said Terry Johnston, General Manager of TeDan Surgical Innovations.
