VGI Medical, LLC, a privately held medical device company specializing in unique spinal implants, today announced the full the commercial launch of the VerteLP® Lateral Interbody Fusion System.

VerteLP was designed to address many of clinical challenges that surgeons face such as insufficient fixation of the implant or interference with pedicle screws. The system was designed to be minimally invasive and anatomy preserving all while decreasing operating room time due to the reduction in the number of surgical steps and instruments required to insert the implant.

“We have been thrilled by the feedback and clinical outcomes during our alpha launch and we are excited to launch VerteLP to a wider audience,” said Tov Vestgaarden, president and chief executive officer of VGI Medical. “Our goal is create innovative solutions that solve clinical problems for surgeons and improve patient outcomes and we believe we have achieved that with VerteLP.”

VerteLP Advantages

  • Biomechanics – First of its kind bilateral plate fixation limits axial rotation and lateral bending, increasing stability of the segment
  • OR Efficiency – Reduction in OR time due to fewer instruments and surgical steps required to insert cage and lateral plating when compared to other lateral systems
  • Anatomy Preserving – Unlike competitive systems, the VerteLP lateral plating fixation does not compromise the endplates or vertebral bodies
  • Avoids Pedicle Screws – VerteLP lateral plating does not interfere with the placement of pedicle screws in primary cases or at adjacent levels where prior hardware is in place
