TSI’s Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System Redefines the Standard of Care in Spine Surgery

Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System redefines the standard of care through its unwavering assembly stability, boundless set-up versatility, unmatched visualization and effortless ease of use.

SUGAR LAND, Texas, October 23, 2017

TeDan Surgical Innovations (TSI) today announced the launch of the Phantom XL3™ Lateral Access System for lumbar spine surgical retraction. A full product release will be held later this month at the North American Spine Society Meeting (NASS) in Orlando from October 25 to 27.

Unencumbered access to the anatomy while maintaining a small surgical incision remains a clinical challenge for the minimally invasive surgeon. The all-new Phantom XL3 transforms the approach by eliminating instrumentation fiddle factor through the integration of unparalleled surgical access design elements — all with the focus of elevating the surgeon’s experience.

“There are a variety of lateral lumbar retractors available today, but finding the system that meets all of your needs as a surgeon can be difficult. The intuitive design of the Phantom XL3 provides reliable retraction with a sweeping blade motion unlike any retractor on the market”, said James J. Lynch, MD, FAANS, CEO Spine Nevada.

As a full solution to lateral lumbar access, the Phantom XL3 comes equipped with an integrated 360° directional EMG neuromonitoring dilator kit as well as lighting and shim components to provide additional stability and visualization.

“With a rise in minimally invasive approaches (MIS) for spinal fusions, we believe that the versatility and ease of use offered with our Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System will redefine the standard of care for MIS approaches,” said Terry Johnston, VP of Sales and Marketing of TSI.
