The VEO™ Lateral Access & Interbody Fusion System by Trans1 is featured in this 3:51 procedure animation. The lateral access system helps to minimize psoas muscle and nerve plexus trauma and reduces post-operative complications.
The animation begins by introducing the product, showing patient positioning and taping, and making the incision. Next, the 2-stage retraction process is explained. Stage 1 is the circumferential soft tissue retraction down to the psoas; Stage 2 is the splitting and retracting
of the psoas muscle. Next, the discectomy is performed and the interbody trial is inserted to determine cage size. After selecting and attaching the interbody cage, it is inserted into the disc space. Finally, the instruments are removed from the surgical site.
