CHESTERFIELD, Mo.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–SpineSource, Inc. today announced it has been awarded a national contract from the U.S. Department of Defense for its L-Varlock® Expandable Lumbar Cage. Under the contract, SpineSource will supply L-Varlock® through a Distribution and Pricing Agreement (DAPA) by the Defense Logistics Agency which offers U.S. military medical treatment facilities access to a full spectrum of medical products for active U.S. military personnel and veterans.

“The L-Varlock® continues to impress,” said Tom Mitchell, Founder/CEO of SpineSource. “The fundamental nature of spinal bone healing, sagittal balance and disc height restoration are all found within this implant.”

The L-Varlock® is the only lordotic expandable device in the United States that can be expanded from any range of zero to 24.5° of angle, and from zero to 7.1 mm of expansion within the disc space. Made of titanium alloy, it provides a preferred material for bony osteointegration and a wide open framework for bony in-growth.
